DESIGN STYLE: BEFORE AND AFTER



We are proud to display photos of our latest commercial project in the final stages. This was an eight month long project for an 8,000 square foot Orthodontist office. Because of the young age of most of the patients, we have geared some of the areas to children and used appropriate fabrics and accessories for this purpose. Below are before and after photos showing three different areas. All of the fabrics used are contract (made for commercial use) and are not only colorful but durable. We wanted the office to be colorful and not the usual blue and gray used in most offices. Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more in my next article.
BEFORE: SIDE VIEW OF FIREPLACE IN DRYWALL STAGE.
AFTER: FULLY FURNISHED LIBRARY WITH FIREPLACE AND COFFEE CENTER.
BEFORE: CURVED BENCH AFTER LAMINATION OF BASE, BUT BEFORE FABRIC.
AFTER: CURVED BENCH AFTER ADDING CUSHION AND PILLOWS.
BEFORE: CONFERENCE ROOM IN DRYWALL STAGE.
AFTER: CONFERENCE ROOM WITH CUSTOM BREAKAWAY TABLE AND LEATHER CHAIRS IN CHAMOIS.
