GRADE Architecture & Interior Design notes, "The design of our room embraces independence and the luxury of 'personal time.' To celebrate this, we have created a room with a relaxed seating arrangement — free of TV, iPad, cell phone, and the outside world. Being alone in a room surrounded by art, books and high-end design cultivates thought, reflection and calm. With the use of soft, luxurious materials such as velvets, wool, cashmere, silk, and leather, in combination with complimentary lavish hard materials such as ebonized, cerused oak, polished nickel and marble, we have created an environment that exudes confidence, quality and success. The eclectic choices in furniture, lighting and art come together to promote self-expression and refined taste, both of which are qualities of independence.
