Daniel Shapiro: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The view from Shapiro’s office opens up to the entire loft. To address the inherent challenge of creating intimacy in an open environment, Karen and Daniel chose the sectional, by Gus Modern, as a means to define the living area. The green lamp is an antique store find, and the vintage Danish side table was found at a local collector, proving that high style is well worth the search.

This handmade rug is made in the city of Heriz, in Iran. It is a very traditional and antique design that I see is very popular in libraries and offices.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's Shapiro's view from his office. A plush sectional by Gus Modern defines the seating area. The green lamp is an antiques store find; a local collector found the vintage Danish side table.The photo banner on the far wall is a lamppost sign advertising a Robert Bechtle exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It is a cropped reproduction of Bechtle's oil painting "'61 Pontiac," from Room & Board.
