The reception area showcases a hot rolled daybed with burlap mattress. Attached to this bed is a set of bookshelves that house several pieces of Han Dynasty pottery. On the wall above the daybed is a piece of artwork that adds a pop of color to an otherwise neutral space.
To enter SOMA Design Studio's conference room, clients and designers must pass through two antique Chinese doors. These doors open to reveal a large concrete conference table with room for six natural saddle cab chairs to comfortably pull up. On the back walls, three pieces of artwork are featured-two 17th Century Portuguese paintings and one 20th Century portrait.
Here, a sitting area sits underneath a window in front of some exposed brick. To the right, a built-in set of steel bookshelves houses books, magazines and pieces of Antonio Martins' collections. A modern, wood chair sits to the front right of this space, complemented by a set of modern coffee tables in the center of the area. A colorful chair sits to the left of the space, while an elegant brown sofa provides the space with more seating. To the immediate left of this space, two 17th Century Portuguese paintings hang, giving the space more personality.
On the design floor, there is a seventeen foot island used for presentations, layout design and storage that bisects the space. On either side of the island, there are three designer work spaces. These individual work spaces were created with bent cold rolled steel, providing a sturdy, yet still attractive, place for designers to work.
The pantry in this space is equipped with everything staffers could need to heat up their cold lunch. Plates and bowls are easily accessible from their open wood shelving. A large sink with built-in drying rack provides a place for quick cleanup; a microwave and refrigerator are present for reheating and storing leftovers. All these modern features fit within the pantry's rustic design, featuring an antique clamp that is attached to the countertop and another 20th Century portrait hanging to the side of the space.
Upon entering SOMA Design Studio, clients are greeted by antique Chinese doors and a hot rolled daybed and sofa. This sofa is a part of the reception area, and its cushions are covered in burlap, which is consistent with the makeup of a traditional French mattress.
This corner of the room showcases a few lovely antiques. The desk against the back wall is an antique Vargueno, whose face falls down to reveal a set of drawers for storage. Other antiques in this corner of the studio include an antique Chines Chair and two 17th Century Portuguese paintings.
Just off the pantry area where Antonio Martin's antique craftsman's tools are on display and at the front of the design floor, sits an antique Chines chair next to a modern buffet and three pieces of modern artwork.
In this corner of the office, a leather Holly Hunt chair sits agains a brick wall under rays of sunlight. Surrounding this elegant chair are antique portraits and a collection of books on which a live orchid rests.
