Modani and create a room with its pieces. I think too often people associate modern and contemporary design with being stark and cold, but when layered properly, modern can be warm. I chose a white faux-leather sofa (from Modani's range of modern sofas) as my base and paired it with the zebra rug to bring in nature. The angular side table and floor lamp add structure while a graphic throw and Moroccan ottoman lend some softness. Then, most important to any room, personal touches: A fun candle (elephants are my thing) and vintage map add to the curated feel.
