This space didn't require a lot of cabinetry for storage purposes. There is a large walk storage space directly behind that can be accessed through double doors.
So, instead, we used that large island area for double sided seating and added statements with the ceiling detail and beautiful lighting.
This floating shelf looks simple but it a feat in engineering created by the contractor, Bearded Builders.
They mitered the front edge of the underside to create an even wash of lighting that you can see from the front.
The wood details throughout the space are book-matched Walnut. And with such a large area, we made sure that as many people as possible would have a comfortable place to sit. Built in seating behind the sofas, large island with double sided seating for 8, and a large sectional.
The space at the bottom of the stairs was a perfect nook for "party overflow". Our clients envisioned this as a space where groups can sit and talk without the noise of the game area or tv spaces.
A little bit industrial, and always cool.
