THE COSMOPOLITAIN LOUNGE
The Cosmopolitan Lounge was a vignette featured at the 2014 Art Antiques and Jewelry Show held at Navy Pier. In designing this space I imagined the owner to be a global traveler collecting artifacts from all over the world. In this lounge they may host friends for a game of cards, sharing in some champagne or afternoon tea. I envision the owner sitting at their desk writing poetry or even doing some old fashioned correspondence. Perhaps the owner’s parents were friends with Elizabeth Taylor.
The use of mixed metals of gold, silver, pewter unifies the collection of furnishings from various periods.
The leather paneled wall with a metallic finish anchors the space and adds sophistication. The artwork is in a variety of media reflecting the owner’s broad interest.
