Screening Rooms Mania
Trends in home theaters include modular seating and hidden controls.
A whimsical color palette and seat islands mark the screening room-style of "The Feature," an event space at the luxury 500 Lake Shore Drive apartments. When living in a high-rise, "you typically don’t have the space for that basement rec room, and I think [designing this] started with that approach," said Ann Thompson, Sr. VP of architecture and design at Related Midwest. The space includes a fridge, two oversized TV screens and a bar, perks usually found in a high-end home.
