Bespoke Home Office



At the top of my client’s home was an unused room with two intrusive dormers. Could a fully equipped home office live in this somewhat confined space? To make it happen the first priority was to create storage where there was none. Custom cabinets were built within the two large dormers, housing lateral files, making access easier. Between the dormers a custom cabinet adds to the storage.  A long black lacquer table under the window provides a platform for the TV. In addition to the ball and claw mahogany desk, there is a seating area with a round mahogany table and three chairs, two covered in Nobuck leather and one swivel rocker with a Nobilis striped fabric. Not visible in the photographs are a bookcase and closet.

Of course the look of the space is equally important as the functionality. The sienna color textured wallpaper and similarly toned carpet contrasts elegantly with the black cabinets and mahogany desk and table. The faux leopard covering on the desk chair provides a funky counterpoint to the more buttoned-down tailoring of the room. Tailoring is the right word, as this home office not only features everything the client needs functionally, but also has a look perfectly in tune with her style.
