Style Scheme: A Masculine Home Office Retreat

For the Spring 2017 issue of New England Home Connecticut, we asked interior designers Caroline Kopp and Douglas Graneto to imagine chic office spaces for a stylish power couple. And, just to shake things up, Kopp created the office for him, while Graneto imagined a feminine space for her.

Today we share the office design created by Kopp, but come back tomorrow to see the style scheme for Graneto’s feminine office space.

Albert Sofa
When it comes to upholstery, you can’t go wrong with a classic silhouette like this tight-back sofa with English arms. A traditional upholstered piece grounds the room, allowing you to be more adventurous with other elements in the space.” Lillian August for Hickory White, Lillian August Design Center,

Live Edge Desk by Jeff Soderbergh
“This handmade desk is fabricated from one bold slab of
wood; it is just so masculine and rich but in a rugged,
authentic way.” Jeff Soderbergh, Newport, R.I., and Wellfleet, Mass., jeffsoderbergh.com

Apparatus Tassel Sconces
“I love how cool and different these sconces are. They feel vaguely vintage-deco yet totally modern
at the same time. The flexibility of LED technology allows for futuristic lighting forms that have not been seen before.” Room, Greenwich, Connecticut, roomonline.com

  1. It’s about time that wheels are on the sofa. Victoriana no less. Easy to move, easy to clean, and the design of the sofa happens to balance well with the wheels. Congrats on creativity.

    A slab for a desk is beautiful, but not practical.
