After moving into a work space of my own recently, I’ve been itching to look at photos of how other people have organized the interiors of their work places. What better place to start but the office space of a trio of interior designers?
The designers at Johnson/Soler do commercial and residential interiors in the usual way: client meetings, walk-throughs, meeting with contractors, picking out fabrics… the usual. But they also offer an online design service for people who want the services of an interior designer but don’t necessarily have the budget.
Their Lincoln Square studio space is bright, organized, and inspirational because even though it was designed by designers, the end result looks totally attainable and affordable.

After reading Teenangster’s post about Rushmore the other day, it got me thinking about this place by my office. It’s a barbershop frozen in time and full of decor inspiration. Like the black, leather upholstered Danish modern chairs positioned four in a row against a wood paneled wall and a ’60s phone that shares table space with a nearly empty bottle of Hennessy. Originally opened over 50 years ago by a French man, Andre, it is now home to Joe, John, and Kirk. A trio of young dudes with a passion for Americana and the no frills offerings of the barbershops of yore.
I visited the shop, Coiffeur Andre, and chatted with 22-year-old barber, Joe, who is hell bent on keeping the barbering craft alive. He told me that he’s been a barber since age 10 and even discovered his first Playboy (SFW) at a barbershop. Manly traditions indeed…
If you are in need of a shave and a haircut, I highly suggest a visit to Coiffeur Andre at Belmont and Ashland. Need more old timey barbershop times in your life?
