We have a final update for this previously shared project – and the Empire has certainly struck back with this home office. Our amazing and out-of-this-world client wanted a space to fan his lifelong passion for Star Wars, and senior designer Miche Monteiro certainly delivered.
A life-size Boba Fett guards the command center, which features a custom desk fabricated by Sacramento creative Marc Foster. The curved command center is surrounded by iconic patterns, inspired by significant locations in the galaxy. The circular pattern in the floor is a nod to the chess board used in the films, the walls backlit to resemble the infamous Death Star.
The remainder of the space spotlights a gorgeous full-height fireplace surround. The pièce de résistance is a hidden tv, which is revealed when the center panel is flipped over, in a one-of-a-kind mechanical innovation.
Another noteworthy element in this space is the curved white leather rocker sitting in the center of the room, taunting gravity as it stands upright when not in use.
The final showcase piece is a life-size replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite, dwelling in a custom glass display case and surrounded by Jedi lightsabers and helmets. Behind Solo is a backlit pattern reminiscent of the floor panels present when he was initially frozen in the film.
Our client, Rob, has loved Star Wars since the original move premiered on his sixth birthday, which he saw in theaters eleven times. Decades later, the prequels began their run while he was in medical school, and Rob spent his precious free time researching the new movies and the rumors surrounding them. Rob now shares his love of the franchise with his wife and children, and is excited to one day share that love with his future grandchildren as well.
