A key element when designing home offices is capturing what is important to the homeowners and then creating a backdrop that expresses who they are while still making the room reflect the architectural detailing of the house. Using the clients’ favorite artwork, photos, and colors is just the beginning. Typically, I take an elevation of the room and design a space that will cleverly conceal files, printers, and other office equipment to create the effect of an executive office with everything in its place and the desk as the focal point.

 Here the desk is an 8-foot-long slab of sculpted walnut that provides an edge to a traditionally designed office with black shelving and molding, a fireplace, and a hickory floor.

Art_collector_home_office

This office is more about the interests of the art collector/art dealer homeowner. The desk was custom designed with a glass support and, like the sculpted walnut desk, it cantilevers so that it appears to float.

Bookshelves make up an entire wall in this office, reflecting the interests of a book-loving client while providing balance with the dining room directly across the way. A contemporary black-and-white hexagonal wool rug adds graphic interest and texture.
