We were thrilled when Schumacher asked us to create a room for the "Schumacher Challenge" using the incredible designs of architecture icon Frank Lloyd Wright. In 1955, he created an amazing collection for Schumacher; now, the fabric house has brought back these designs and introduced new ones in partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. We instantly knew that this bold/architecural collection would be perfect for a masculine study that we had in the works for a favorite client!
Our goal was to create an intimate and timeless office retreat. We instantly knew that crisp black walls would make this "small space" feel intentional and cozy. We layered in Schumacher's Matrix tape to define the walls (and add a layer of detail inspired by the great David Hicks), and included the large scale pattern on the Danish modern sofa.
Other highlights in the room include a favorite new console by Miles Redd for Ballard, finished off with an art piece by Alic Daniel. We framed a Calder print (for an affordable source, just search "Calder" here) along with vintage black and white art, and equestrian prints above the sofa. We've rounded up many of the items in the photos below, along with the exact fabrics at Decorator's Best—a great resource for fabrics usually available to the trade only!
