A good workspace is undervalued. Of late we most often end up working in grey spaces with grey "ergonomic" furniture with a grey creative tool (yes I'm talking to you Apple) propped on top... little connection to craft and true creativity. I do believe a creative work space should show some residue of the creative work that has happened there. This space is tidy but I'm guessing it's at it's best when it's messy and in between two or three projects.
I love this design! Everything about it. Only glitch, I always want function & comfort to be the first consideration. Not sure I'd be hanging out in those chairs for hours on end while chatting with friends & family. But very aesthetically pleasing!
