The Design Behind The Studio at K|D
Design is in our name, it is the backbone of our company, so getting the opportunity to design our own commercial space was thrilling. The Studio at K|D is 30 years in the making, it is a place that allows us the opportunity to help inspire and equip people to live fuller, well-designed lives. Follow along as we take you behind the scenes of the transformation and design choices that brought The Studio at K|D to life.
One of our design goals was to transition the space, with its functional 8’ fluorescent commercial lights, to a more warm, inviting atmosphere. We drew inspiration from our travels, particularly boutique hotels that used lighting in unique ways. We added lighting in unexpected ways and places, such as above windows and flanking office walls. Many of our selections act as a showroom for the lighting we use in our clients’ spaces.
Our favorite feature, however, is the reclaimed pendant lighting sourced from a church that was being remodeled. This lighting, with its cathedral-like grandeur, subtly nods to Kirkendall Design’s core values while also illuminating the high ceilings of The Studio.
