This two-story foyer features a volcanic stone clad wall which serves as a backdrop to a live edge walnut shelf. Above, the planter is finished with the home's original tongue-and-groove wood that once was on the ceiling.
Materials and color bring a modern feel to this traditional home. A custom walnut coffee table and beige sofa outline the sitting space. Colorful throw pillows top the sofa to liven up the neutral coloring. Cowhide brings in a natural element and color while keeping maintenance low.
A walnut built-in shelf unit with open shelving above and cabinets below pops off the white wall in this modern sitting room. The white walls are also an ideal blank canvas for the large sketches set off by gold frames.
Three long, wooden floating shelves line the kitchen area of the game room and are gorgeously curated with contemporary design pieces that are illuminated with under-shelf lighting. Below, walnut cabinetry provides plenty of storage space for snacks and board games.
Look closely at these bookcases and note that they’re built on industrial disc casters, designed to be beautiful and practical office/room dividers. They’re literally colorful, moveable walls. Hanson Hsu of Delta H Design Inc. designed them with both form and function in mind. The shorter, higher shelves hold smaller books, which are lighter. The middle three shelves hold standard-sized binders and/or medium-sized books, while the very tall lower shelves are for large-format art, architecture and photography books, which can be heavy and cumbersome, therefore easier to handle down low. These bookshelves are constructed of walnut and have a frosted Plexiglas backing so the books don’t fall through.
