Contemporary Interior Architecture
I have had a lifelong affinity for clean and simple lines. These designs often pop up in Finish and Japanese designs. The simplicity and rhythm of arrayed lines is so captivating to me. I selected a work by George Nakashima, because it is the foundation of most of the designs that I enjoy the most. A more rectangular form and clean lines. I have been reworking my office and these vertical lines I have been playing around with to find the right proportions before moving into the final design. I have also been playing around with stains to get the right color and sheen. George Nakashima’s form and rhythm is what is driving most of the design decisions.
My main desk is made of Walnut and differing Walnut veneers, but I have been using Ipe for my vertical pieces as the grains provide interest in depth when it is stained.
