Looks we Love: Mid-Century Office Update
The times are a changing... or at least that is what they used to say. There are many things that we love currently about furniture design and interior decorating trends, but this room here is an example of what is really different, but also really 'in' right now.
Mid-Century Modern Office Update Four Hands Furniture
We are finding more and more furniture options that are lending hints of brass (be it antiqued, matte, shiny or otherwise) to a space to add touches of sophistication and pops of color. You will find the hints of brass in the cabinet, the desk legs and the file drawers. These brass pops help to tie the entire room together and bring a cohesive look to this study space. 
Get the Look

Hendrick Cabinet

Mid-Century form undergoes a modern refresh via cutting-edge materials and trend-forward finishes in the form of the Hendrick Cabinet. Angular iron framing welcomes glass-front doors and textured cabinetry of perforated brass. Ring-style hardware adds a unique finishing touch to this spacious storage cabinet. The glass doors allow you to display your treasures, while the perforated brass doors below provide a space to hide the more unsightly essentials. 

Hendrick File Drawers

The Hendrick File Drawers pair perfectly with the cabinet above to provide extra storage to a study space or even pull double duty as a dresser in your bedroom. Just make sure to pair this one so that it doesn't stand alone and hog all of the attention. Again, the mid-century styling, perforated brass drawers, gunmetal finish and clean lines bring a mid-century look up to date for the modern home. 

Britt Dining Chair

Although the Britt is a dining chair, it works well in this office or study space for several reasons. The woven cane chair back nods to the mid-century styling and the tones of the chair help to tie the pieces together. The cushioned seat will allow you to sit more comfortably for longer periods of time, which helps you get the most of your study space. The mixed materials refresh retro styling. Brushed ebony nettlewood frames a textural inlay of natural cane, for perfect contrast (and pairing with the Eden Desk and Hendrick pieces). Netural high-performance linen-blend seating adds modern sensibility and versatility in the Britt Chair. 

Eden Desk

Another trend we have been seeing is the use of white marble in dining tables, desks, end tables and other surfaces. Lots of which are also being paired with brass accents. Simple A framing gets a sophisticated spin in the Eden Desk. Matte brass-finished iron offers a slender, open look, as polished white Banswara marble marries weighty materials with a feminine feel. 

Pair all of these pieces to emulate the look, or pull from the rest of our catalog to create your own unique space. Share your photos with us once you do or shoot us an email with any questions you may have. Hope this helps and until next time, we wish you happy designing/decorating.
