Croft House loves working with interior designers to help create unique and special pieces for their commercial clients. Often these pieces are completely custom and are the result of collaboration between the designer and a Croft House design associate. Recently we had the opportunity to design a reception workspace for the law office, Derby Curtis LL, in downtown Los Angeles.
The challenge was to create an eye catching and multifunctional workspace. The duel height desk needed to work for the attorney’s clients as well as front desk employees.
The foot print of the desk was a large L-shape composed of three sections that would attach as one on site. All desk sides had a waterfall leg to hide storage underneath. Once the technical details were ironed out it was time to select materials.
The designer sent over inspiration and concept images for the space. The idea was to mix a new, sleek wood species with the raw industrial steel of our Chambers Dresser. We had recently been working with a lot of Walnut and thought that this was an excellent fit for this. The rich, warm walnut tones compliment the steel perfectly. The entire exterior casing of the desk was composed of several sheets of industrial steel with an inset panel of beautiful oiled walnut. Finally, the wall directly behind the desk was completely covered with horizontal boards of oiled walnut.
Croft House is honored to have a hand in the gorgeous interior of the Derby Curtis Law Office. With the help of the interior designers, we were able to build a one-of-a-kind reception desk.
