Juggling progress on our studio with quite a few large consumer assignments, it was really a labor of like.

A swift refresh: The studio is situated in a historic constructing in Lakeview / Lincoln Park that previously housed Drehobl Artwork Glass, a Chicago corporation that commenced earning stained glass and beveled glass windows in 1919. I to start with fell in appreciate with the space just after strolling by and noticing the attractive original moldings from the 1920s and the considerable purely natural light-weight inside of. I preferred this to be a space that felt charming to work in, that could host activities for our shoppers and that felt extra like a residence fairly than an place of work.

Now, for the transformation!
We began the renovation by using out the again home and bringing the walls up to entire top so we could make a true storage closet (a requirement for inside designers!).
The modest kitchenette showcases our customized cabinetry line and has all the newest Monogram appliances, which includes a 5-in-1 oven, dishwasher and underneath-counter refrigerator drawers. The cabinets are white oak with a black stain and we selected Arabescato Corchia marble to make a normal statement. The twin structure, with both countertop and bar peak counter, offers us extra countertop room for prep and the means to sit, take in and converse extra easily.
Alongside the substantial wall as you enter the studio, we produced a big library showcasing 18 feet of cabinetry, as well as a custom operate desk to home our sample library and showcase our potential for intricate millwork particulars.
To decorate the studio, we extra classic rugs and vintage furnishings, which include a secretary desk and a bench from Chairish, one of our favorite areas to resource superior-top quality classic items at reasonably priced price ranges.
A New Orleans home furnishings maker we operate with often, Doorman Design and style, made our custom made convention table and white oak desks.
We refreshed all the paint, then brightened up the place and assisted to set the mood with attractive lighting from our two of our most made use of traces Circa Lights and Curry & Organization. I love how the conference room chandelier feels like a fashionable art glass. Fitting for an old stained glass factory!
We held the unique oak flooring, which were in very good ailment, during the workplace. To include visible interest in the entrance entry, we hung attractive wallpaper by a person of our most loved British designers, Beata Heuman. The millwork for the entry mirror and bench is initial, but we additional new smoked glass and painted it dim for some contrast.
