purple sofa, and I like the way it's made, with low, wide arms, and thick, blocky shapes

Entering the living room, you are struck by two things: the high-sheen orange ceiling and the purple velvet sofa. “It’s very Austin Powers, isn’t it?” says the designer, with a laugh. Her feeling was that an orange ceiling would be young, fun and expressive. The paint initially didn’t seem to belong on the ceiling. “It kept peeling off at first,” says the designer. “High-gloss paint can be hard to work with.” Finally, after she figured out the technique with the contractor and the vendors, the upper reaches of the room took on a warm glow. “Now it’s anything but generic,” says Iba. She describes the purple sofa as a neutral. When an incredulous reporter asked her how this could be, she said: “After we painted the ceiling orange, we decided we needed something to temper it down. We could have used brown or gray, but that would have been boring. Purple does the trick.”
