This Philadelphia row house formerly had a second kitchen in an alcove off the den. The homeowners wanted to create a comfortable environment to work and read. Storage under the bench and in the shelving unit holds office supplies, hanging files, gift wrap, and arts and crafts supplies for the kids. Tangerine paint along back of shelves makes books and nicknacks pop. Modern swivel chairs are stylish and comfortable. Desk is made from salvaged indonesian teak with a live edge. The slab turns the corner to continue through bookcase unit for continuity and flair.
