Interior designer Christopher Coleman and fashion designer Angel Sanchez collaborated on a room that is a “fusion art, design and fashion” and a little futuristic too! I only had a chance to briefly meet the designers but according to their marketing the loft was designed as a “lounge space for a stay at home recessionista to work, lounge, and play.”

The space has two 65″ televisions, a see-through desk, and a new art ping pong table in polished steel with glass net. I heard that Martha Stewart played a quick game during the preview evening. I bet she won too! The table was designed by Rirkrit Tiravanja and was fabricated by Cumulus. I wonder what happens if someone hits the ball too hard into the net. The entire room was designed to gleam and includes all slick and shiny surfaces which includes the Phillip Jeffries vinyl wallcoverings. Very sleek and chic!

    you KNOW martha does not play games at which she does not stand a very good chance of winning!

    while i appreciate risk taking rooms in a showhouse (what better place to do such a thing), this room seems a bit too disco-riffic to hang in for long (i think it might be the overhead lighting). the hanging fern though is something i see ready for a comeback… srsly! 😉

    I wasn’t sure at first, but I think I kinda like the shiny ping-pong table.

    Those bookshelves are very cool!

    I do like the idea of a presentable ping-pong table. We used to have one in the basement, growing up, but it was strictly ‘rec room’ grade!

    Good thing the recessionista doesn’t have a job outside the home because she’s going to be spending a lot of time wiping fingerprints off all that shiny furniture!

    This room seems to me like some sort of 21 year old’s pipe dream of how cool living at home in mom and dad’s basement could be…
