Actor Will Arnett is known for his sharp sense of humor and willingness to be different, and his new Los Angeles home reflects his personality. He hired architect Suchi Reddy, who studied in Detroit, and prefab company LivingHomes to design a 3,975-square-foot steel-frame custom home.
Arnett says his home is reminiscent of his Canadian upbringing. “Growing up in Toronto, we had these great ravines, and there was one house in particular that was very modern, with a lot of glass,” he told Dwell. “I remember people saying, ‘That place looks weird.’ And I remember being like, it’s not weird, it’s rad.”
We love the modern and airy feel of his living room, and if you like Arnett’s style, we’ve got the look.
Here’s What You Need
Start with a pair of charcoal gray sofas. Our Sidney Road Truffle Sofa from the Cindy Crawford Home Collection is a great choice, and it features the added detail of nailhead trim.
A Mid-Century inspired chair adds to the modern feel of the room as well as a wooden element. Our Rocky Arm Chair is a great choice, and it ships to your home for free.
Arnett’s room uses three coffee tables to connect his seating collection. Not only do they provide plenty of surfaces for beverages and books; they can easily be moved to the side if he’s entertaining and needs the floor space. Our Leeds Coffee Table provides the same lines, which complement the design and style of the room. The square base helps keep the line of the room open.
A black round side table sits next to the accent chair, holding a few accent pieces. Our Acton Black End Table would be a good choice, as its pedestal base keeps the room feeling open.
Finally, Arnett has an oversized rug with an abstract print to anchor his living room. The light gray colors are calming and add a subtle pattern. Our Torrance Slate Rug would be a great choice. The soft colors provide a nice contrast to the charcoal sofas, and they help marry the marble top of the coffee tables.
