We’ve been challenging at work renovating this room into a area that is equally functional and stunning for our increasing workforce. Juggling progress on our studio with a lot of massive shopper assignments, it was definitely a labor of really like.
Nowadays, we’re so excited to expose the “after” shots so you can see accurately how it turned out!
A fast refresh: The studio is found in a historic building in Lakeview / Lincoln Park that previously housed Drehobl Art Glass, a Chicago organization that commenced creating stained glass and beveled glass home windows in 1919. I to start with fell in love with the house immediately after going for walks by and noticing the lovely authentic moldings from the 1920s and the plentiful normal gentle inside. I needed this to be a house that felt wonderful to operate in, that could host situations for our purchasers and that felt more like a residence alternatively than an workplace.

Now, for the transformation!
We began the renovation by getting out the again room and bringing the walls up to complete top so we could produce a correct storage closet (a requirement for inside designers!).
The tiny kitchenette showcases our personalized cabinetry line and has all the most current Monogram appliances, which includes a 5-in-1 oven, dishwasher and beneath-counter refrigerator drawers. The cabinets are white oak with a black stain and we selected Arabescato Corchia marble to make a all-natural statement. The dual structure, with both equally countertop and bar peak counter, provides us further countertop house for prep and the capability to sit, try to eat and converse extra effortlessly.
Alongside the substantial wall as you enter the studio, we produced a massive library showcasing 18 toes of cabinetry, in addition a tailor made work desk to residence our sample library and showcase our ability for intricate millwork information.
To accessorize the studio, we extra classic rugs and vintage home furniture, together with a secretary desk and a bench from Chairish, a person of our favored locations to resource superior-excellent vintage products at cost-effective selling prices.
A New Orleans furnishings maker we work with routinely, Doorman Layout, developed our custom meeting desk and white oak desks.
We refreshed all the paint, then brightened up the place and served to established the mood with lovely lights from our two of our most utilized traces Circa Lighting and Curry & Company. I appreciate how the conference place chandelier feels like a present day artwork glass. Fitting for an previous stained glass manufacturing facility!
We held the authentic oak floors, which ended up in excellent issue, in the course of the office. To increase visible interest in the front entry, we hung stunning wallpaper by just one of our favourite British designers, Beata Heuman. The millwork for the entry mirror and bench is primary, but we added new smoked glass and painted it darkish for some distinction.
