Well, I cannot lie, this week has been a bit slow on the office design front. However, a few good things happened! I had a bit of time over the weekend to shop and found a few gems at the local antiques spot. I am quite happy with these two beautiful frames and the framed print. At first I thought I needed to find something to go into the frames, however, I am beginning to love them as they are, with the original, highly textured wood backs showing through the glass.
I also decided to go practical and budget-friendly and simple on the desk with the CB2 go-cart desk on wheels, all metal, and in all white.
The metal is practical since I tend to mark up and dent wood and mdf desks when I sketch on them. Powder-coated metal is a great material for wear and tear. And if I am seeing clients in the office, I don’t want a dirty desk. The wheels also relate nicely to my rolling metal cabinet.
I also chose some pillows from my stock to use on my (coming soon) antique settee. Keeping to my overall palette, I have black & white with some textured linens with just a few hints of warm colors.
Next week I will have a settee in place, more artwork and hopefully a few accessories. Stay tuned.
