03 Aug SERENE SCREENING ROOM
“You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning…a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be.”
– Joseph Campbell
BEFORE | EMPTY OFFICE SPACE
After completing the head of the agency’s personal office, she was ready to take the plunge and do something amazing with a large unused space on their floor. She had dreamed of a proper screening room where she could entertain clients and view projects with her staff. This was an exciting proposal for us, and I got to scheming and sketching something that would be as chic as it was comfortable. We ended up being able to create a mini movie theater for everyone to enjoy and the feedback from their clients has been tremendous!
AFTER | SCREENING ROOM
Ta-da! A theater within an office, doesn’t get much better than that! I don’t love carpet, but certain spaces need it for coziness and I don’t mind it in areas that are not heavily trafficked. A neutral herringbone was just the right fit to match the soothing walls painted in one of our favorites from Benjamin Moore. Metal bamboo nesting tables are form and function at its best and can be separated for sharing throughout the space for drinks and snacks.
Seating for 17 has never been so much fun. Navy mohair on the arms is an homage to old hollywood theaters. It is very durable, and by only using it on the arms, we were able to keep the cost down. Navy velvet on the backs and bottom give a pop to Robert Allen’s Canvas Linen in “Navy Blazer” fabric and can withstand a lot of use while still feeling luxe. A wooden base was created for stadium seating like a theater and stained a neutral color to marry the flooring, walls and furniture into a cohesive space.
Don’t you want to sink down, relax and enjoy a flick in one of these!?
A proper movie screen and projector makes this room complete and ready for viewing parties. Ready, Set, Action! Stay tuned for the new kitchen we are designing for this office.
