Vanity Fair recently asked a few prominent interior designers how they'd redecorate the Oval Office, given the opportunity. One of them responded by saying:
For me, redesigning the White House would be a job of a lifetime . . . I suggest throwing off the symmetry with De Sede’s 1960s Non-Stop sofa, along with a set of violet Jacobsen Egg chairs, the Brass Kaleidoscope I designed for Bergdorf Goodman, and my Tracery Rug for the Rug Company. I would also include a heavy and modern desk with a chartreuse empire chair and a modern screen.
