My client is a day trader, works at home, and needed a desk for two computer moniters to follow the market and the current news.  The room was also to be used as a small TV room.  An existing closet was removed to create a work alcove for her.  See the before photos. The walls of the room were upholstered in silk by the previous owner and the silk couldn't be matched for the new alcove.  Consequently the walls in the alcove were papered in a cinnabar colored, lacquered paper to match the color of the Japanese cinnabar finished trunk in front of the loveseat.  The silk-screened prints over the sofa and on both side of the TV cabinet are by one of their collected Hawaiin artists.  Her husband works at home as well but only to make phone calls.  The glass topped table desk is his work space.  The antique Chinese cabinet holds the TV that she can view from her desk to watch news as she works.   The Fortuny pendant fixture over his desk is hand painted silk and was imported from Italy.
