One Architect + One Product Designer = Home Renovation
The Reveal : :
This room went through two versions of the design process. Below is the first iteration. In this initial design we opted for more of a reading / sitting room feel. We anchored the room with a large bookshelf, filled with design books, vintage cameras, and various trinket-esque finds. The room was furnished with two chairs: An original Eero Saarinen chair and a danish inspired wooden chair found at a local vintage store. A white, shag rug was placed on the floor. The walls were filled with artwork and the TV wall was a sad little story. Out of a lack-of-other furnishings we filled that wall with more shelving.
Round 2 of the living room design was much more conducive to our needs and design intent. The large bookshelf was removed to allow more flow and floor space in the room. A love seat was added in the mid-century style to soften the room and increase its functionality. The hard-to-keep-clean shag rug was replaced with FLOR carpet tiles, a branch bookshelf was added to the orange, feature wall as a focal point, and an awesome vintage record player was added to the TV wall.
