Commercial + Residential: Office Seating + Simple shades

Several of our projects this past year have all had repeating themes.

In every one of our residential projects we have had to specify window coverings. In our commercial projects it has been a constant hunt for the ideal office chair.

Funnily enough, after dealing with these subjects for months and finding great solutions and product, Remodelista (one of our favorite design blogs) came out with two articles covering these topics with a lot of the same results we found.

It is invaluable information to have. Read over the findings and tuck away the information for when you come across these challenges.

Below is  great article about deciding to use roller shades in the home. I have had them in my home for years and have always loved the simplicity.

Exterior colors of Wolf and Seed Pearl, Pratt and Lambert Paints and interior colors mostly of Seed Pearl. My client has incredible design acumen and did not need much help with furnishings and lighting. It all came together perfectly.
