THE DESIGN PROCESS We are moving along in the design process for the dining room in the ASID Showcase House for May 2012. Sheree Vincent and I have been busy making selections for this traditonal room and are pleased with our choices.
The green and gray linen print is the color source for the room and will cover 2 lounge chairs. Gray silk curtains will grace the windows along with the creamy sheers. The green "lattice" fabric reinforces our garden theme & will cover the 2 host chairs at the dining table. All fabrics from Kravet Inc.
And here it is. I love the elegant, updated take on a wing chair.
This fabulous glass fronted buffet looks handpainted, but that is actually fabric behind the glass. What a find this is and it will be stunning in the dining room. A real conversation piece. By Marge Carson
Here is the floor plan for the dining room showing furniture and lighting placement.
The focal point of the room is this custom designed dining table. It is 54" wide and will seat 20 people with all three leaves in place. This was a specific request of the clients as they will really use the dining room for entertainment, large parties, family gatherings and board meetings. It had to be elegant yet durable for lots of use, so we added a "bar top" finish and light distressing. The result is a gorgeous "antique" style table. Table by Sterling
