Nestled along the shores of Lake Tahoe, California, this contemporary mountain house underwent an extensive renovation by IMI Design Studio, an interior design studio based in Scottsdale. This opulently crafted residence seamlessly integrates locally sourced materials, embracing the essence of the region. Every room in the home boasts custom-designed furniture pieces that perfectly complement the spaces.

The stunning sectional was scaled to fit the living room. It was custom designed and fabricated to fit the overall design aesthetic. Owner and designer of IMI Design Studio, Anita Lang has her own luxury furniture line, Design 528. Her modern furnishings are available to designers and showrooms.

This space is used for entertaining guests. The effect the designer wanted to create in this space was a “wow” factor. Their goal was to create an experience for guests.

The unique looking faucet was specified from Graff Faucets, the Luna Collection in a polished chrome finish—here. The sink was custom fabricated from limestone. The cabinetry is also custom, to meet the needs of the space. It also helps to create a harmonious flow with the other materials used throughout this dwelling.
