Un-office Guy Blume

Interior designer Guy Blume uses a vibrant abstract folding screen to carve out a private work space in his downtown Los Angeles loft, inside the Orpheum Theatre building. Blume fashioned the screen from three canvas panels, each measuring 7.5  feet by 2 feet, purchased from a local art-supply store. He joined  the panels with hinges and hand-painted the design, which he describes as "in the mood of Picasso with a 1950s vibe." Behind the fanciful room divider, his office is stylish and simple: cabinets from IKEA and document boxes keep clutter at bay, a slab of travertine leftover from a job acts as a work surface, and a 1950s office chair is an EBay purchase. Two Brno chairs designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1930 serve as pull-up chairs for client meetings.
