This is a great transitional space. Between rooms, before the stair tower... a wide open area with plenty of shelving for the best books and albums. We added a desk to the space to make the area a bit more useful. Not just any desk - the Sophia by Oly with a pieced limestone top in a herringbone pattern. We selected this side chair for the back! And we called out the details by using a dark slubby silk so it would relate to the desk's dark finish. The hair-on-hide rug underfoot makes the space feel collected over time and brings an organic shape to a rather straight area.
We custom upholstered the Duncan chair by Oly to get this just the way we wanted it. Modern, graphic, Classic, French - everything in one chair. There was only room for one. So it had to do it all! And that color? Smokey lilac - it's totally undeniably gorgeous! Oh! And the lamp - they are gold cranes from a line called Shine.
