    The ladder is from Putnam Rolling Ladder. They were great to work with!

    Depends, by the picture, looks like it would be functional as well? I made one out of pallets I took apart, but more for displaying pics and such on a blank wall, not for standing on however I should have prefaced this with, "do not try this at home", if again said ladder serves a practical purpose! :)

    The built-ins were made with paint grade wood.
  • Kendrah
    Okay, so solid wood rather than veneer. Thanks. They look fantastic.

    The sectional sofa is from Cisco Brothers. It is called the Kardell. The scale was just perfect for this space!
  • tbchic

    Loving the scale of the sectional. Having issues with my odd shaped small living space while keeping lounge comfort. Do you know if this sectional is comfortable to lay lounge and watch TV? I see it is 36" depth which concerns me, but when I look at the pics it looks oh so cozy! Great job on the space too. I am using for inspiration.

    The paint color on the ladder is Atmospheric by Benjamin Moore. It is a beautiful blue/green color!

    The ottoman is by Vanguard. I believe it is called the Lorenzo Ottoman. The navy leather is from Cisco Brothers but has since been discontinued. Hope this helps!

    The ottoman is from Vanguard. We had it upholstered in a navy leather from Cisco Brothers and the base finished is a custom color. I believe it is 42" round.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 6 Multifunctional Rooms That Work and Play HardAug 26, 2016

Living room, dining room and office. Interior designers Roisin Giese and Miggy Mason of Twelve Chairs needed to fit a lot into this Boston condo for newlyweds. The couple wanted an inviting living room that would also serve as an office space, dining area and storage center for media and books. The designers inventoried what the couple needed to store and sized the shelves and cabinets accordingly. The built-ins fit snugly around the TV, house the media components, corral books and display sports photography. The designers also added a ladder for reaching the high shelves.

“He is a writer and had a ton of books spread around in different bookshelves in his last home,” Giese says. “Having them all in one place was one of the biggest program requirements for them.” The designers checked out the collection and the size of the books to help them determine the dimensions of the shelves. They also planned the area for the TV around the existing set’s size to get a tight fit around it. The media components are hidden in the closed storage below. “The ladder is one of their favorite things about the room,” Giese says. “They use it all the time to access the books up high.” The backs of the shelves are painted the same gray-blue as the ladder. Another of the husband’s favorite interests is sports photography — the photo is of Ted Williams at Fenway, and there is a photo of Muhammad Ali over his desk.
