The Good Fight Gets A Whole New Look

The office set on The Good Fight gets a face-lift, and the results are fabulous.

The Good Fight's law practice has a new name—Reddick Boseman & Lockhart—and a whole new look, too.

When the CBS All Access drama returns in March, viewers will find that the fictional Chicago firm has undergone a major makeover. Emphasis on major.

Production on the show moved to a new soundstage, "so we started from scratch," says set decorator Beth Kushnick, an alum of the drama's predecessor, The Good Wife.

Her first order of business? Re-imagining the new space. "In the re-design, we melded the best pieces from both series and added more warmth," says Kushnick, who created a custom-made rich merlot sofa from The Good Fight Home Collection with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams for the reception area.

It's one of several pieces (available for purchase by the public) that Kushnick designed with the furniture manufacturer to dress the set and ensure that it looks like no other show out there. "There's a phrase called anti-cookie-cutterism," says Kushnick. "And I think that applies here."

The chairs in the reception area also come from Kushnick's The Good Fight Home Collection with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. She previously collaborated with the company for The Good Wife line, which was the first licensed home decor line for a TV show.

"I am always looking to do the high-low concept," says Kushnick. That is, mixing pricey pieces with inexpensive ones. The quartz reception desk by Cambria was custom-made, but the coffee table is from retail chain Pottery Barn!

Shrewd lawyer Diane Lockhart, played by Christine Baranski, "is the ultimate elegant woman," says Kushnick. Her new office reflects that. Kushnick selected sophisticated pieces such as a Restoration Hardware Shagreen desk and an antique needlepoint chair to populate the space.

The office accessories on the desk are from Kushnick's own line of products, BAK Home (available on Amazon.com), as are the matching boxes and ceramic bottles on the credenza.
