Collaboration with Christopher Patrick at the 2015 DC Design House

CPI Presentation Board

We are excited to share our collaboration with Christopher Patrick of Christopher Patrick Interiors on the master bedroom suite of the 2015 DC Design House.  Over the course of a few meetings, we refined our plans for some new designs, as well as pulling in some existing pieces, to help create his vision for the space.  Among the new pieces are some brand new designs from our next collection with Amanda Nisbet of Amanda Nisbet Designs.

The Margaret Headboard features a deep keyhole cutout, and the hole is framed by a steel ribbon with an oversized rivet details.  We worked out the shape of the bed in cardboard, which the metal shop used to create the actual prototype headboard.

Here’s a view of the headboard with our Annecy Settee at the foot of the bed.

Also new in the Amanda Nisbet is the Gate Cabinet, which Christopher is using as a bar.  The design is based on a pair of actual gates made up of an interesting arrangement of horizontal and vertical slats, which we created in sheet metal and steel.  The cabinet is finished in Amanda’s signature Sunshine gold leaf, and light reflects dramatically through the slats from the mirrored interior.  Here is the raw cabinet fresh from the metal shot, along with an image as it was being installed.

Christopher selected our Palissy Ceiling Fixtures for the vestibules, and he got to help Claire Niermann put them both up on installation day.  We also created a new Palissy Floor Lamp for the bedroom seating area to coordinate.

Christopher’s space also included the master bedroom, which included a massive fieldstone wall behind the soaking tub.  To bring warmth and comfort to the space, he carried over the rich brown and gold accents from the bedroom area, including our new Sorrento Mirrors above the double sink vanity and our new Hex Pendant to anchor the space.

The Sorrento Mirrors are finished in French walnut with gold leaf accents.  Here they are going through the studio, along with a view of one installed in the bathroom.

We finished the large scale Hex Pendant in Sunshine gold leaf and included eight lights to create a golden glow floating over the room.  Here it is going through the paint studio, then installed in the bath during the photo shoot with Christopher and his photographer, Erik Kvalsvik.
