apartment designed by hope velocette in center city philadelphia pa chrysalis studio
The Client owns his own law firm, has a love of knowledge, and an appreciation for the story behind objects. With this in mind, Hope Velocette owner of Chrysalis Studio, focuses on mixing and matching furniture and materials that project a narrative of their own.
These materials include reclaimed moulding, iron, and doors which all hold a strong residual energy. live edge wood slabs, adorned with gnarled bark, express years of life within their large grain patterns. Vintage rugs from distant places have all been customized to fit into their new surroundings. These elements are juxtaposed with clean walls painted in bright white and pale pink; their grit softens when seen adjacent to oversized furniture covered in luxurious soft linen, velvet, and fine leather.
