Turn an architectural niche into a focal point.

In an otherwise rectangular room, a jog in the wall gave Vancouver designer Anna Dhillon an opportunity to design a standout space. She outfitted the niche—already lined with gorgeous stone tiles—with a custom stained oak to create a modern secretary’s desk, complete with floating shelves. “Custom millwork is key, or something very close in size to the space so it looks custom,” says Dhillon. “It gives it a ‘wow’ factor.”
