the wood chair is vintage Paul Mc Cobb; the clear chair is "Ghost" by Phillipe Starck and available online most anywhere

it's the same color as the whole wall, it's in shade so it looks darker.

I am more interested in the lamp on the desk. New? Old? - Looks classic.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Cerulean blue accent wall in the master bedroom was a bold choice. “We wanted color but not a dark color. this shade glows in the daytime and is a warm blue.” Kristen found the Paul McCobb desk while vintage shopping, and her client found the Paul McCobb chair separately. The mix of woods works well, especially when you factor in the nightstands from Thomas Moser, pictured next.
Becky Harris added this to How to Ease Your Way into Bold Color
Paint one wall. If you hate it, you're only out a couple of hours and a gallon of Killz to cover it up and re-paint.
A blue wall tends to make a room feel larger. This is important to know if you have a small room that you want to expand rather than make more intimate and close.
As an insomniac, I'm with Lauretta – I say nay to a full-on workspace in the bedroom if you have the luxury of putting it somewhere else (i.e. no filing cabinet, printer, computer, etc.). I do envision having a good spot to jot down notes and ideas, or perhaps some good old snail mail correspondence in the bedroom. Maybe even a love letter you'll spritz with perfume and seal with a wax stamp...okay, now I'm really getting carried away! This uncluttered mid-century modern desk with its small table lamp and larger vase of flowers is an excellent choice.
Kelly Porter added this to How to Pick the Right Blue Paint
Sky blue. I think the most beautiful blues are the ones that mimic a clear blue sky at midday. You know — a sky with no clouds and no haze ... just endless blue. This color is very saturated but not jarring. This type of blue is vivid so it does bring energy to a room, but because it mimics the sky (and sea) this blue is very delightful and easy on the eyes. Color Pick: Flyaway 6794 by Sherwin-Williams
Scheer & Co. added this to How to Hide Those Messy Wires
Wires are an inescapable part of our lives, but minimizing how much we see of them makes our living spaces so much more serene. This little table lamp has to plug in somewhere, but hiding the outlet behind the drawer portion of the desk conceals the "ugly" part of the lamp.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to A Love Letter to Writing Desks
Now that's blue! This bold blue paint creates a great backdrop for this midcentury writing desk. Note the scale of this vintage piece; its petite size makes it a good choice for a bedroom.
This eclectic room features a midcentury desk, but the accessories reflect the interests of the owner — regardless of era. Pairing the warm desk with a clear Ghost Chair and a bright blue wall creates personality and charm.
