The Modern Lounge Sectional, by Momo Suzuki & Alexander Yamaguchi

The Challenge: Untouched for decades, the 1,200-square-foot house was gloom-central inside and just about every inch needed tending.

The Solution: Generally infusing the rooms with a look that’s equal parts midcentury modern and Japanese serene.

The oak flooring is original.

Rooted in fashion, Momo & Alexander considered texture and colors in the sectional fabric when coordinating it with the other pieces in their space.

The corner features a Serge Mouille light
