This client already lived in the building, but desired an additional getaway within the same building; a space to entertain larger crowds, host board meetings, and allow for a guest suite. Warm colors and textures were the answer. An enormous custom-designed dining table of wood timbers reclaimed from a Missouri barn added a homey touch. The entertainment cabinet clad in reclaimed barn wood hides the TV and a murphy bed. An awkward zone under the stairs became a daybed, perfect for reading, naps or a good chat. The warm, rough woods are complemented with punches of color.
This industrial, concrete structure, built in the 1920’s, housed an electrical manufacturing company. Recently converted into condos, this unit needed some warmth, but keeping the original essence was important. Eames chairs, a green leather chair, and striped and patterned fabrics add vibrant character. The accents were selected in keeping with the theme of industry: gears, ancient light bulbs, a collection of oil cans, and an antique toolbox.
