Pendant Lighting for An Office Entry

by Sarah on December 15, 2014, one comment

I’m working on a little office upgrade. It’s a quaint little commercial space in downtown Southern Pines, NC and it needs a little TLC. We’ll give it some paint, upgrade the bathrooms, repair and re-coat the maple hardwoods and it will be open for biz.

The entries to the office spaces have these cathedral ceilings with little false dormers that allow more natural light in to the space. Right now, these shiny brass 80s chandeliers are hanging.

To modernize the space and give a different first impression when you enter, we’ll install one of these,

Cloth and Kind

A design firm to keep an eye on is Cloth and Kind. I highly recommend you take a spin through their entire portfolio, I think you’ll find it pretty darn inspirational. There are some killer moments in their work and sometimes, as a generally over-stimulated person cruising the internet like me, I find that killer moments in ID portfolios don’t come everyday. It’s collected, inviting, livable and really smart. These are some of my favorite images,

In case you want to know who that lady is with the eyeshadow–that’s a Leigh Viner print.

Barbara Bestor everything–for Betsy because she and Heffe will buy a dump on a beautiful lot with maybe a view of the Pacific and Ms. Bestor will help them turn it around,
