A F T E R:

The Challenge:
To create a stylish and practical bedroom for a college student that would suit all her current needs and still work for her when she leaves home.
The Vision:
We would create custom-made modular furniture with versatility in mind, using dark woods, metallic accents, and simple lines for longevity. White hotel-style linens would complement our clean, classic look, while a retro floral fabric would inject a note of fun and femininity.
The Process:
We used height to our advantage, designing tall storage pieces, even stacking a cupboard unit above the headboard. An awkward niche in front of the closet was made useable by removing the closet doors and replacing them with drapery, leaving room for a small dressing table. A huge curved desktop provides a large work surface without blocking access to the dressing area; with its quirky hutch and flanking window treatments, it creates a strong focal point to balance the tall cabinets opposite. We placed the TV and stereo at the foot of the bed on a rolling stand that could also serve as a bench or coffee table in the future. And for comfortable viewing, plush cushions were attached to the front of the headboard with velcro to allow for easy cleaning or re-upholstering, in keeping with our dual mission of functionality and versatility.
The Result:
An unqualified "wow" from our client and her friends.
