Interesting design challenge. After purchasing this weekend home in Baltimore, this couple had definite design ideas. A bold color palette, custom home office, unique custom area rugs and a home furnished the way they had always dreamed.
The views from this home are spectacular. The Baltimore skyline can be seen from every window, and the reflection in the harbor is amazing. The design challenge called for combining all of their needs and all of the design elements the couple wanted. They insisted on comfort with style and artistry with usefulness. No heavy dark color schemes, no oversized furniture. A light airy look so they could gaze out the windows to enjoy their beautiful views.
Let's get started:
Our new leather sectionals feature adjustable headrests and power recliners. Good things in life come in 3's and this sectional is no exception. Three power recliners sit side by side in the sectional so everyone can face the TV. No more putting poor Uncle Adam in the odd seat twisting his neck. Now everyone is happy.This allows you to find just the right comfort level for the new 70" TV. Just being surrounded by our butter soft leathers makes the wine a little sweeter, and a night time movie that much more enjoyable. Shapely two tone swivel leather chairs makes it easy to watch tv or turn your attention to the conversation. In the center of the room, is a geometric custom area rug perfectly coordinating all the design elements of the room.
There are many ways to create a home office. Our way is to create a look so you don't feel like you are working in an office.
Our custom cabinetry is built to the inch to satisfy your most individual working needs. For this home, each drawer had to be designed to fit an extensive camera collection as well as additional work items. A shapely computer desk with keyboard pullout adds to the style and the usefulness.
The highlight of this design experience is the custom rug. As you can see in the photo, the client enjoys a spectacular view of the Harbour from every window. Pia wanted to recreate this view in a custom area rug coordinating all the colors used on the seating. This rug creation is a one of a kind design, signed by Pia, that is as creative and unique as artwork hanging on the wall. Our rugs are artwork for your floor!
American made dinette chairs featuring stainless steel curved backs and microsuede seats surround an extraordinary dining table imported from Italy. Two separate stones are used and curved on the ends. Swarovski silver dust is embedded into the finish to give it just the right sparkle.
Our custom bedrooms are manufactured one at a time by artisans to the exact specifications that Pia designs for you. A iridescent pearl vinyl covers is upholstered to the headboard and every other piece is made to the inch to accommodate the clients' needs.
They seem very happy and satisfied with their brand new furniture. Wonderful people, dear friends, generous in spirit, adventurous in life (from motorcycle to African Safari). They wanted their future retirement home on the shores of Baltimore Harbour to reflect their creativity and their zest for life. They wanted a unique look as individual as they are. They wanted a quality design and quality furniture.
Pia came through for these very, very sweet clients.
