A sheet metal fireplace surround treated with a chemical wash adds a bold industrial note. The furniture is upholstered with indoor/outdoor fabrics for ease of upkeep. A long ottoman in front of the fireplace allows for flexible seating. A mix of complementary but not matching fabrics gives the room a collected look. In the floating stair hall, Comer designed the striking light fixture and had it made by Crow Chandelier in Dallas.

Inside, another important historic design element is the back-to-back interior fireplace. Facing the breakfast room on one side and a sitting room on the other, the fireplace is the focal point for the entire main level. Throughout, Comer kept the palette monochromatic to better showcase the mix of traditional pieces juxtaposed with industrial and modern pieces. In the dining room, a metal console and a display of art glass play nicely with classic cane-back chairs and a traditional wood dining table.
