Executive Suite is our series of posts and thoughts on what transforms a room or a space into an executive suite. The notion of the executive office has changed a lot in the last 20 years and we think new technologies like tablet computing and the mobile office will combine with new trends in virtual employees to make for exciting designs and innovations in furnishings. The classic executive office with wood paneled walls, pedestal desks and wooden credenzas will remain a mainstay in fine executive homes.
But the influence in the office crosses gender boundaries and new design aesthetics to make the office more a part of the home rather than an independent unit. The home office can be a dedicated space or a combination space for guests or play time and you can find roll-away beds, accent tables, sofas or game tables just as often as you will find club chairs and writing desks. And of course the space is driving design and usage as well, whether converting an unused closet into a hide-away office, dedicating a guest room to an office for the kids or looking at new uses for basements, dens, or garage lofts.
We hope to bring opinions and insights into designing your executive suite whether it be at home, in a corporate office, on the road or in your own small business space. We think the design and furnishings matter. You Work Hard, you should Live Well. Come join the conversation with Bryden Road.
