Design Board: A Mid-Century Office

I just recently discovered The HighBoy, which is a curated marketplace for antiques and fine art. There is so much good stuff on the site. I picked out a few pieces to put together an office space. I went mainly mid-century for this design, but the range is huge. 
1. Pendant // This Art Deco piece isn’t mid-century, but it fits thanks to the beautiful navy detailing on the painted glass.
2. ‘Open Space in Jerusalem’ by Eve Menes // This gorgeous watercolor on paper ties the color scheme together perfectly.
3. Crystal Table Lamp // Sold as a pair, but I’d use one as a desk lamp.
4. Floor Lamp // No longer available, but I had to include it because it’s just stunning.
5. Teak Desk // There were a lot of gorgeous desks that made picking out this beauty difficult, but I love the generous width and the fact that it’s finished on the back too, so it could float in the middle of the room.
6. Saarinen Armchair // Yes please. This armchair was my starting point for the whole design board, and the color scheme.
7. Vintage Cowhide Rug // I love the subtle color on this hide, which echoes the teak in the desk.
8. Leather Chairs // I would have these in my house in a second.
9. Bronze Side Table // The round shape and brass finish add a bit of glam and femininity to the room, although again, there are a whole host of lovely options for side tables.
10. Rug // This one’s not from The HighBoy – they stock a bevvy of stunning rugs, but I felt like something simple would let the other pieces shine.
11. Artificial Palm & 12. Basket // Repeating my mantra that every room needs something green and organic (I’d go real and risk my black thumb, but faux works too, if only for looks).
Obviously this is a very high-end, dream room, but mixing vintage investment pieces in with newer, more affordable decor is a great way to make a space feel layered.
