For my sketch models, I wanted to focus on the room, rather than the object inside of it. The top picture is of the ceiling, and how I would want the flow in the room to go. I wanted Japanese umbrellas to mark the door, leading to the sideboard, where it gets a little lower, and then from the sideboard to the table, where it gets a few feet lower.
The bottom picture is a representation of how the walls will look. I want the walls to be curved at the top, to mirror the circular table and to enclose the room to make it more intimate. I was unable, at this point, to figure out how to show my table in a model, and still had troubles all the way until the day before the project way due.
