It was time to update the interiors of a large, successful law firm.
It's still not finished, but here are some before and after photos.
The carpet sample on the lower left was already chosen. I used that along with the marble floor in the lobby for inspiration. Their clients come to them for business law and estate planning.
We wanted a traditional, relaxed and secure environment.
(The counter bottom trim will be painted charcoal to match the piece).
One of the partners said that the wall color was trendy.
It doesn't really pay to argue with a lawyer, but I reminded him that it is an historical color
(Benjamin Moore Stratton Blue) found in 18th century architecture.
I borrowed the antique prints from another room.
(see me taking the photo?).
I didn't know how to get their client out of the shot. We reupholstered the settee in a commercial
linen and made one seat cushion instead of three...and thicker for more comfort.
Hey, he looks pretty comfortable...mission accomplished.
The upholsterer did a nice job.
The club chairs were also redone and I accessorized with law books.
This is one of the hallways.
The interior halls were painted a bone white (to blend with the filing cabinets)
with dove white trim.
Artwork was edited and rehung throughout.
Here you can see where we painted one accent wall (on the right) Benjamin Moore Wyeth Blue.
This was done in each work station.
Below is before
the senior partner got busy purging so the Phillip Jeffries grasscloth could be hung.
Here is the office now. We had the backs of the shelves papered also.
There are antique carved chairs and Herman Miller chairs being
reupholstered for this office.
We'll come back when the conference room is finished.
The entire office was disrupted and displaced while the painting and new carpeting was installed.
But now it's all fresh and clean!
If you need help with estate planning, I highly recommend this firm.
Everyone is pleasant. knowledgable and honest
...including the lawyers! (little lawyer joke).
Thanks so much for visiting!
