Office Desk and Chair Design

15
Thanks to local craftsman my office desk and chair turned exactly the way I have envisioned them. It did not happen quick and easy, but thanks to my patience and persistence, finally I got what I wanted.
Duke ju falemnderuar zejtarve vendor tavolina ime e punes dhe karriga dolen saktesisht ashtu sic i kisha parashikuar. Kjo nuk ndodhi shpejte dhe lehte, por fale durimit dhe kembengulesise sime, me ne fund, mora ate cka kerkoja.

The day I signed the lease for my interior design studio I had a clear vision how i wanted my front reception area to look.
Qe ne diten kur nenshkrova kontraten mbi qirane per studion e dizajnit, une kisha nje vision te qarte se si doja qe te dukej kthina ballore e studios.

I wanted it to look sharp, crisp and elegant. However, knowing what the local furnishing stores had to offer I new that it is going to be difficult to achieve the look I was envisioning.
Doja qe ajo te dukej mprehet, fresket dhe elegante. Megjithate, duke pasur parasysh se c’fare kishin te ofrojne dyqanet vendore te mobiljeve, e dija se do t’a kisha te veshtire per t’a arrijte look-un te cilin e parashikoja.

Having this in mind I made some sketches of the desk and chair I had in mind and turned to local craftsman to seek help in creating that “perfect” desk/chair duo.
Duke e pase kete parasyshe, i bera disa skica te tavolines se punes dhe karriges dhe ju drejtova zejtarve vendor qe te me ndihmojne ne krijimin e nje cifti “perfekt” te tavolines dhe karrikes se punes.

Couple of weeks later, and after some further instructions in between, I got this beautiful chair desk duo which is now beautifying my front office, and as well is showing off the craftsmanship of local artisans.
Pas dy jave, dhe pas disa instrukcioneve shtese ne nderkhohe, u bera me nje set tavoline dhe karrige shume te bukur pune, i cili set tani e zbukuron pjesen hyrese te studios sime, si dhe e tregon punen e zellshme te zejtarve vendor.

I am more than happy the way those turned out, and also pleased that I found locally everything I needed for this project.
Tani jam me se kenaqur se si doli kariga dhe tavolina, dhe gjithashtu shume e lumtur qe e gjeta materialin e punes ne shitoret vendore.
16
Be it as a set or as individual pieces, these items will make a great addition to any home or office.
Qoft si set apo si pjese te vecanta, keta artikuj mobilues paraqesin nje shtese te bukur te dekorit te shtepise apo ambienteve te punes.
6 a
The desk/chair duo will also serve as prototypes and we are open to accept orders for making single pieces or in bulk.
Tavolina dhe karriga do te sherbejne gjithashtu edhe si prototipe, ashtu qe qe nga tani ne pranojme porosi per punimin e tyre si me cope apo ne sasi edhe me te medha.

Grey Kitchen Design

16

‘Grey,’ a colour that is sadly still associated with negativity and dreariness, is actually one of the most popular kitchen colours around!  It is certainly the hottest neutral tone, and not just for the kitchen but for home interiors in general.

Essentially, Grey is a neutral and stable colour tone.  It effects a calming atmosphere, which is perfect for a kitchen, and at the same time carries an innate air of elegance and sophistication.  Implemented with due care, these qualities will carry through beautifully into the home.

I was so happy that in my last project the homeowners colour of choice for their kitchen cabinets was GREY, and we were lucky to find a supplier in the area we live that had this elegant soft lustre grey laminate for front doors and drawers.

Since the best use of space did not allow for applying any kitchen shape other than straight line shape, I had to add some interest to the kitchen design by incorporating some horizontal glass cabinets and some open shelving at the centre of the kitchen. Glass cabinet door was also used to hide a central heating device which was unwisely installed (by the builder) right beside the kitchen wall and which was “dramatically” visible from all around the living area. For continuous flow, the etched glass doors were used for the shoe cabinet at the entrance.

Instead of using a standard pantry cabinet, I designed these deep botom drawers for storing food supplies and other kitchen staff which is not used daily; and, the empty space below was designed for storing bulky staff or supplies that require air and can be stored in baskets.

Initially, these drawers were designed to be custom made wider, but the cabinet maker did not properly follow the design and the measurements so during the installation of the kitchen we realized that we were ending up with a 20 cmm empty spot at the right side of the kitchen. This was a big fail from their part, but since the owners were in a rush to move in, and did not have time to wait for the drawers to be redone, I had to come up with the idea on how to fill that empty spot which would also serve somehow a function; hence, I designed this wine shelf which will provide for a plenty of storage for homeowners.

The bottom cabinets are deep drawers which allow for an efficient time spent in the kitchen. In traditional bottom cabinets with doors, one has to bend and search for the stuff stored in those cabinets, whereas using drawers as bottom cabinets everything is visible and right within the reach. This adds to the cooking efficiency as well as to the enjoyment of the time spent in the kitchen.
18B
While creating the design I was constrained with the design choices since there was no possibility of making any plumbing or ventilation adjustments. Regardless of the constraints, I managed to come up with a design which provides for a plenty of countertop working surface in this rather small kitchen.
18C
Moreover, the colour and the design of this kitchen is working perfectly with the overall design of the Living and Dining area. The homeowners are loving it, and I am happy that they gave me the chance to help them achieve their goal of having an efficient kitchen which blends beautifully with the Living Room and the Dinning Area.

Custom Dinning Table Set

8a

This post is all about a Dining Table Set which was custom made for the dinning spot in this Living Room.

Since the dining area in this small living room is right opposite from the sofa, it kind of makes this dining table set as a focal point of the room. Having in mind this I had to pay an extra attention in terms of choosing the design of the chairs, the dining table as well as the colour of the table and chairs.

The client wanted a chic, full size dinning table and chairs but at the same time she wanted that the set is not bulky and does not take a lot of living space.

To achieve this I suggested that we go with the bench seating at one side and three small backless chairs for the other side. When not in use the bench and all the chairs fits nicely and tightly under the table creating the feel of spaciousness in the dinning spot.

As I mentioned the dinning spot is kind of a focal point in this living room so I had to come up with a unique design of a dining table; hence, i designed this very funky dinning room table which at one side has a shelving unit instead of legs, while on the other side a set of curved legs add interest and a bit of glam to the whole dinning set.

The table color is dark grey while the bench and the chairs are light grey, upholstered in linen fabric and decorated with thumbtacks.

The dining spot turned quite elegant; it adds interest to the room and, most importantly, it does not feel bulky and does not take a lot of space.

Neutral Living Room Design

1O
My last project involves custom design of all furnishings, including the kitchen and wardrobes of a two bedroom condo in a brand new building located in a most dense Pristina neighbourhood.

The clients were upgrading from a one bedroom to a two bedroom condo. They sold their one bedroom with all their furnishings and they wanted a new design concept for their new place.

They already had in mind what they wanted and they even had in mind a colour scheme, but they needed help in implementing their design concept, so they asked for my help.
5
I had to work in a very tight time frame, and within a given budget so pulling everything together for less than a month was quite an achievement for me; considering that this was my first big project, and I was not aware of all of the resources at that time.

The clients were searching for that perfect sofa and chairs for months, but they could not find anything that suited their taste or something that could fit into their small open concept living area within which is the kitchen and dining area also.
6
We started with the sofa and chair design first. We opted for a long sofa which would fit up to four persons and two armless chairs. Armless chairs are perfect for small condos as they take up a very small amount of space. Both chairs and the sofa are raised considerably from the floor by using 20 cm decorative legs. Adding legs to the furniture is the best solution for small spaces, as this adds the feel of spaciousness; and, this is exactly how this rather narrow and small living room feels.
7
After choosing the sofa and chair design, we had to make a choice of the upholstery fabric and the drapes.
7B
Where we live the choices of upholstery fabric are rather limited, and you have to make a choice of fabrics which are already in stock. There are no known or renowned brands of upholstery or drapery fabrics represented here so one has to make the best choice of what is found in the market. If you decide to take a route of ordering online than the shipping and custom fees are quite costly, and it takes forever until you get the item shipped to your address; therefore, most of the times it is more reasonable to make the best choices and work with supplies found locally.
4
As you can see the living room project turned quite elegant and functional. The living room feels calm, crisp, spacious and above all welcoming. My clients are happy and they are loving it, and I am thrilled that I helped them have such a beautiful and elegant living space.
