“Offices are one of our favourite spaces to design, and we love working with entrepreneurs who lead with their hearts in their respective fields. This office was designed for an exceptional leader and trailblazer in her industry. The contrast between the soft rose metallic wallpaper and bold black light fixture represents the tension between the people-centred and technical skills essential for running a successful business as a female entrepreneur.”—Amanda Lwanga, Linger Design Studio

Mood Board for a Bold, Inspiring Home Office Space

The original art by Raymond Saá is displayed on a 55-inch Samsung Frame TV, which I’ve recently switched in for most traditional canvas art in my clients’ offices—they make for a fantastic alternative to the black double-monitor situation we designers are constantly trying to run away from. raymondsaa.com; samsung.ca

The Ponti collection

I almost fell out of my chair when I first saw Jamie Beckwith’s flooring collection on Instagram! The Ponti collection is perfect for this space: it contrasts the rounded organic form found in the rug and lighting and mirrors the angular sofa. divinefloor.com

Whiskey Sour side table

This space wouldn’t be complete without this origami side table from our new furniture line, Petra. This table was designed as adaptive art, shifting shape and shadows throughout the day. The three stones were sourced with sustainability in mind—they were salvaged from a local stone fabricator. petrabylinger.com

Christian Woo’s column table, photo by Trevor Brady

Because the flooring and rug have a lot of visual movement, I selected a more minimal desk—the Column series from Vancouver designer Christian Woo—along with Eileen Gray’s classic Non-Conformist chair. I hope this chair reminds my client daily that she sits on a foundation of her big vision, courage and non-conformity. informinteriors.com

Isaac rug

I’ve been really drawn to mixed-media rugs with different pile heights, looping techniques and textures, and the Isaac rug from Rug Society acts as a work of art on its own.  rugsociety.eu
