A gorgeous room by designer Loralai Wester
Transform a nondescript family room with a propensity for clutter into a well thought out Classic/Contemporary inspired room that functions as a library, office, and sitting room.
Design and have built an office system that takes full advantage of the client’s limited space. Incorporate an existing sentimental chair in need of re-upholstering, a classic leather-bound book collection, and a stain-glass lamp created by the client into the new design. Create an informal environment that works for not only reading and office work, but also as a comfortable place to gather with friends and family or read a book. Make the space visually appealing due to its close proximity to the homes entry.
The Success Story
The result is a space that mixes contemporary pieces with antiques and personal keepsakes in a way that feels harmonious and fresh. A custom office system was designed, built and installed that perfectly suites the client’s needs, including plenty of space for file storage and office equipment. A solid wood bookcase was included to display the client’s book collection and decorative accessories. A classic/contemporary style of office furniture in cherry wood was chosen to compliment the red leather sofa and dramatic art. A favorite chair was re-upholstered in a Stickley fabric and a brightly colored hand-knotted wool rug was added to unite the room.
Share This Project On
Working with Loralai was an absolute pleasure. She was easy to work with, she listened to our needs and came up with a plan that has made our room a place that gives us such enjoyment. She was always willing to visit to see how a certain piece fit in the room. I was amazed at the service provided Pedersens. I am very happy with every aspect of building this room including the service and the timeline. Thank You
