The Space: The den of a new luxury condo with 11’-0” ceilings in downtown San Francisco.
The Need: This prominent space off the living room required a dramatic statement to house a wall bed for the occasional guest and a display cabinet for the client’s artwork. The solution needed to incorporate: the “Zoom-Room” Remote Controlled Wall Bed; display space for three statues, and a painting; two bedside tables; file cabinets; and room for general storage.
The Solution: A macassar ebony remote controlled wall bed cabinet was designed to bring both drama and function to the space. The queen size wall bed is housed in two bowed cabinets of macassar ebony which project from a main cabinet of ebonized eucalyptus. The bowed cabinets contain pull-out bedside tables, file cabinets, space for general storage and a printer on a pull-out shelf and organizers for the client’s paperwork. The cabinet features niche lights over the statues, uplight/cove lighting on the top which reflects off the ceiling, and directed lighting over the painting. InHouse was responsible for the fabrication and design of the cabinetry and the electrical design. Choice of cabinet wood, stain and other furnishings made by others.
