What a spectacular room!
I wish we could all live in such tall and glamorous spaces where the trees outside have such a strong presence, creating a natural artistic backdrop through floor-to-ceiling windows. This room also has a wonderful mix of materials, using glass, brick, concrete, wood and metal.
The wood feature wall is elegant and lets the beauty of the material express itself. The brick fireplace counters the glass wall and concrete floor with a primitive rawness. We can definitely take some smart cues from the minimal and earthy mid-century modern décor that balances out the grand scale of this room.

Canvas butterfly chairs are such a great purchase because they can be used both indoors and outdoors. They are classic, simple, stylish and very comfortable. The two vintage lamps in the room are quietly making their mark; they are both modest and cool. The three short, rustic wood tables along the wall add a great texture to the space.
The key to achieving this look is to remain minimal, neutral and purposeful in your furniture choices to allow the architectural highlights of the room to shine.
