Mahogany Home Office

Mahogany Home Office design consisting of a built-in storage/wall unit and a matching free standing desk which fits into a bay window.

The Space: A spare room devoted exclusively to a home office.

The Need: To provide a professional home office for intensive use when the client is in town (they split their time between another city and San Francisco). The clients were relocating to the City from the suburbs and wanted a home office which reflected the quality and style of their other furnishings in the newly rehabilitated home. They needed file and regular drawer space as well as general cabinet storage and a place for their computer and all the associated peripherals. They wanted an elegant, sophisticated look with a “mid century modern” sensibility.

The Solution: After discussing numerous layouts with the clients, InHouse designed a built-in mahogany wall unit with a complementary free standing desk which fits neatly into the adjacent bay. When closed, there is no hint that the wall unit “hides” the equipment and files. The shape of the desktop reflects that of the surrounding bay window. It is softened with a tapered edge. The desk’s oval legs further soften the overall look of the piece. No hardware is visible on the curved drawer fronts. Wire management is integrated into both units. InHouse also provided color consultation services. Stained mahogany, solids and veneers.
