1940's Living Room

This is my newest project, inspired after playing L.A Noire >.<
It has 4 days of work so far, but C&C would be greatly appreciated. It still needs a bit more modelling obviously, mostly just odds and ends (ie China plates in the cabinet, ornaments on top of the radio and the smaller shelf, as well as items on the walls such as hanged photographs) but I feel as if I'm making steady progress.
Created using 3ds Max and Vray.

Yeah CG 1940!

your curtains must be more translucide

also, the arms of your chair are pretty High. Do you use a ref?

I do use a ref, but you're right about the arms being too high. What can be seen cannot be unseen.

I think it looks more like the cushion isn't tall enough rather than the arms being too tall ... but that could be my tired eyes.

Its a good start, could look really nice.

Here it is:



Since your first post I have brought the arms down and it does look quite a bit better, so thanks for spotting that. I may also fatten the pillow up as well like dantrodgers suggested. I'll upload another render later today.

Yeah... I'm kind of stuck as to how I'm going to do that. This is my first render with Vray.

I actually did try that tutorial a while back and it was all messed up. I've improved my lighting since last time I tried though, so maybe it will be better next time or I'll find something else.

The rug looks a bit flat, could do with some displacement. You might also want to model some more detail around the edges to make it more frayed/give it some tassels. And I think a lamp on the little table on the left side would make the lighting a bit more interesting.

Good work though, the wallpaper + wood really sell the '40s look

Thanks man, and also thanks for the ideas. I agree and will look into them next session.
In the mean time though, here is an updated render:
