For this blog, we’re thrilled to let designer Jana Bek take over and explain her creative process and show us her utterly fabulous makeover result!
As one of my go-to sources for fresh, beautifully crafted furniture, it’s no surprise that Wisteria’s pieces shine in our new Brooklyn apartment. I designed this space for the One Room Challenge™, a widely anticipated biannual event that partners with a myriad of companies and designers. Twenty design influencers are selected to take the challenge, as Featured Designers, and transform a space while documenting their process, sources, and advice over six weekly posts. It’s incredibly fun and rewarding, and I was honored to take part. So, without further ado, if you’re a fan of vibrant colors and pattern, you’ll enjoy touring our new Brooklyn place!
Oslo Burl Wood Veneer Coffee Table
I wanted to go big and bold for our Brooklyn apartment, and I’m delighted with how it came together! In the living room, Wisteria’s Oslo Burl Wood Veneer Coffee Table adds rich texture and a vintage vibe with its mid-century design. In small spaces especially, you want to minimize too many furniture “legs” to keep the space feeling clean and uncluttered. This waterfall-style table is a perfect piece to do just that!
The Disappearing Console
Crafted of luxurious acrylic, Wisteria’s Disappearing Console is so versatile and easy on the eyes, creating a focal point in our Brooklyn apartment. This is actually the third space we've included this piece. Originally, we used it as a buffet table in our Atlanta apartment, then turned it into a storage station in my Ann Arbor home office.

French Modernist Armchair
In any space, the more materials and finishes in the mix, the more lived-in layers of character. In our bedroom, Wisteria’s French Modernist Armchair masters this mix; the rope abaca and sleek curved arms create an elegant statement chair. The light linen bed frame pops against the deep plum grasscloth wallpaper, and sumptuous bed accessories add soft texture to complete the layered feel.
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for visiting. I hope our city abode inspires you to create your own fun and fearless space full of personality and style.
