Tommy Smythe's Home Office

A multipurpose workspace with charm.

Tommy Smythe, designer with Sarah Richardson Design, repurposed key pieces that have followed him from house to house for his current apartment. An antique dresser that has served as a sideboard and night table is now a bar in the living room, and this Victorian butternut table — formerly a kitchen island in his first house — finds new life as a desk. "These pieces have sentimental value, so it's important that I don't get bored with them," he notes.
