Gray-Green Home Office Sitting Area With Gallery Wall
To create a multifunctional seating area in an attorney’s home office, designer Tim Barber chose a flexible mix of vintage and reproduction pieces. “For a room versatile enough to prepare a brief, host tea with friends, steer fundraising projects, help with homework and occasionally accommodate overflow guests, we designed a plan with pieces light enough to be moved easily — and durable enough to survive frequent rearranging (nothing too precious here),” he says. “The sofa is a Lino Comfort sleeper from Design Within Reach, which makes the office a convertible guest bedroom in a pinch. We love the deep seat cushions and low flat arms: perfect for a power nap. The chairs are vintage 1957 Knoll Saarinen armchairs, reupholstered in Kravet fabric. The Saarinen cocktail table is a reproduction from Room & Board.”
