I'm in the gathering stages of designing a home office for an engineer/entrepreneur near Detroit.  This office must function as a guest room and be able to hold meetings with clients and business partners.  I love my job!

My ideal desk would be a live edge table like this:
 

Another example of a live edge table, but this one is a DIY.

We'll be using patent drawings of some sort:

I'm in search of the perfect sleeper sofa for two.  Not an easy find.  I really want something like this:

I'm looking forward to presenting my e-design plan to my client.  Stay tuned, my friends.

In other news...
I took our yellow sofa to the re-upholsterer this weekend!  EEEEK!

We are down to one sofa and two chairs until at least Halloween.  Needless to say I am counting down the days until its return.  I did a little moving around of our furniture.  Here's the phone pic I posted on Instagram over the weekend.  

See that vintage patterned chair?  That's going to the upholsterer next.  It's getting covered in the large leaf pattern.  Trust me. It's GORGEOUS in person.

It looks similar to this:

Have a great day!

I really like the dark walls for a masculine office, something very brooding and sexy about it! Some great inspiration to work with there x
