This couple that lives in a beautiful contemporary home in Ukrainian Village neighborhood of Chicago initially hired us to stop by for a few hours and pick paint colors and to provide some assistance with selecting a couch for their living room. After picking paint colors, they realized that they wanted more of our help with designing their home. Honestly, we were excited to help them design this beautiful modern space.
One of the spaces they wanted us to help them with was an area in their ultra-modern kitchen. The space was too small for a dining table, so we decided to create an informal seating space; perfect for guests to hang out while entertaining. In addition to the clean leather sofa and the metal tables, Bill and Katy had an idea for a large artwork installation. The idea originally started as 3 large wooden panels, but morphed into using wood from pallets to form a large statement piece. Once the idea was finalized, Bill got to work disassembling wooden pallets and cutting them into various pieces that were assembled to form the 3 large pieces that you see in the photos.
To finish up the space, the customer had a great idea to display menus from restaurants around the world that they loved. After seeing the menus, we picked up some simple white frames with linen mats and mounted the menus for all to see.
We are thrilled with how the space turned out, as is the customer.
