The den holds the entertainment set that is comprised of a flat-screen TV, an old record player, and an old stereo that was repurposed into a table. The chair is a reproduction of a Barcelona chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich.
Also in the den are vintage pieces like the storage chest used as a coffee table. The old camera was bought in a local shopping mall. For the seating, there is a reproduction Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman.
