The 2019 San Francisco Decorator Showcase was held in the Presidio Heights' replica of Marie Antoinette's Le Petit Trianon.
Known for creating eclectic spaces, Martin Kobus is a design studio to watch. Whether you’re restoring a room or entire home, or inventing an inviting entertainment space, he brings his well-honed sensibilities to offer a milieu with a cool contemporary vibe.
Kobus describes the project in this photo as follows: "Through a contemporary lens, we transformed the music room of this mansion to an old school meets new age glamour recital salon, while paying homage to the room's original classic French architecture. A moody canvas of warm petrol charcoal cascades the walls and millwork to harmonize with a coved ceiling adorned in a 20th century geometric inspired wallpaper aptly named “Symphony,” by de Gournay.
"Honing in on this early Cubism period, we shadowed Picasso’s steps back to the souks of Marrakech—where the room’s Martin Kobus custom designed chandelier was sculpted from the natural spherical form to give a wink to musical notes. A duet of feminine silhouettes and strong pitches of masculinity dance through the space where custom designed furniture in gilded ochre tones, mixed metals, brass structures, and velvet shine. We flirt with the art of the abstract through simple shapes, collage, and the intersection of dimensionality."
