Gunkelman Flesher

It's been quite some time since Minneapolis interior design firm Gunkelman Flesher has been featured on DTI so how about a long-overdue encore. They have an undeniable creativity and unique use of colour, but on the other hand a wonderful ability to keep things muted yet still eye-catching. I love the lines of the furniture used throughout. Captivating, sophisticated and timeless.

Gorgeous! I saw the top picture in a magazine (Domino?) years ago and became obsessed with the curved glass coffee table. Probably 90% of my furniture has come from thrift stores or estate sales and cost less than $150, so when I finally found a place in Italy that would custom make the coffee table for me, I figured it was okay for me to splurge. Twelve weeks and $800 later, it arrived. I still love it as much as I did the day it was delivered. :)

Traditional GF is home to me -- but I'm always inspired by their contemporary and what they call "the transitional" (a blend of the two: classic and modern). This is a great overview.

I appreciate the first-rate designs featured here. They are at once tasteful and sophisticated and are unblemished by pretentiousness. I would be proud to showcase these designs in my home. Gunkelman Flesher is deserving of praise for their effort.

Unconventional elegance. I love that they turn what was obviously meant to be a dining room in an arts&crafts house into a conversation area -- and it works. They love egg chairs, maybe more than is seemly, but ALL the chairs are chosen so carefully; althogh leather in a bathroom? I'll object to that because of the squeakiness factor. The blue velvet room is my favorite (cue song) for the sheer exotic vibe it sends out.

The black chandelier caught my eye. Looks like vintage, does anyone know where it comes from and who designed it?
