TTI Project Description
To go in line with their real estate company brand, the TTI investment group asked Ivy´s Design to leverage their expertise into creating a space more worthy of both their business and clientele.
While the owners gave general pointers in terms of style type, and an eclectic mix of Scandinavian design, maximalist modern and traditional class was desired, Ivy´s studio upgraded the whole idea with the elements of the new postmodern design, and hints of subtle influences from the 80´s.
Although a work space, offices, there was no skimping on comfort. From soft carpets underfoot working desks to a sofa so comfortable you want to lounge for hours in the dinning/ chill/ lounge area. Spending the money to get these basic things right are very important and are incredibly gratifying.
And in blue. Dusty rich royal blue. It is the color seen throughout the space, and plays incredibly well with the old school and refined brown.
The floors are in light wood and it is making a comeback. The whole office space if very open and glass walls go all over: the light wood floors provide for an even more airy and open look and feel. These floors reflect more light, and do the transit from casual to luxurious, without sacrificing the comfort.
Right now, deep rich jewel tones with an edge are in style and we are layering rooms with paints, fabrics, accessories and furniture in these colors to create drama against a backdrop of straight lined office furniture classic clean and lean look.
Since the new postmodern, or the 80´s are back full on- the glass dining table and sculptural chandeliers are a homage to the era.
The wallpapers are a thing at the present, and these marble look-alikes are stunning and eternal. They are refined and eclectic, to mirror the exquisite taste of the clientele.
The custom made grey shelves that cover an entire wall serve as storage room but also as shelves to put the trophies on display. They match magnificently with the lighter flooring and the indigo blue accents.
The indigo blue and greenish couch is comfortable and inviting. Couches are imperative for the modern day working environment.
The 80s inspiration is apparent. The colors and the dinning table in glass are staples of the era, and now a must have again.
The offices are light and the glass walls and doors provide for enough brightness to pull off a striking black desk. The dark grey velvet couch on an aquamarine accent wall adds for warmth.
The marble patterned wallpapers are set and rich; striking and imposing, but not overwhelming. The shades go magnificently with the indigo blue colors of the walls.
The meeting rooms is the epitome of class, with a hint of Antique. The marble wallpapers, the caramel colored chairs and the black table are crowned with the glorious chandelier.
Since we did not want to close off the area and needed to provide the desk with enough light, we went for a round version, to soften up the space additionally.
The conference room is a looker- literally. It is surrounded by glass walls and thus had to be striking. It is classy, but robust. The custom made wooden desk, the mid- century Mad Men inspired chairs and the messing chandelier are a winning combination.
