This is how he was functioning for 4 yrs. of graphic design school:
Now the situation is this:
|chair is from the GW|
|art given to him for Christmas from the most amazing store here in Nashville called OMG|
Now for office space #2 that was a paying job. It was a space in an engineering firm on Music Row that needed to shuffle some personnel around and turn a small conference room into a usable space for their director of marketing. It was an interesting challenge for two people that typically pour over design mags featuring homes, but we faced this job like we would a home...think about form and function. This employee needed to access large binders and used multiple monitors on the desk so large desk space and open storage was key. However in any office there are always items that need to be concealed so closed storage is important as well. Keep in my that this is an engineering firm so the esthetic is clean and sleek.
We started out with a space that looked like this minus the credenza sans drawers:
We had no time to change the "feature wall" color so we decided to use a complimentary color with it, turquoise, which happened to be in these amazing mid century modern chairs. Open storage was provided by the shelving above the desk and closed storage in the credenza. The painting picked up on the wall color and every room needs a great lamp.
All in all it was a great experience and am looking forward to what the new year brings.
