The homeowners wanted a unique dining room space that would comfortably seat ten, so designers used natural light and materials that would help make the area feel both stylish and open.

Around the large glass top table, ten contemporary chairs clad in copper colored leather provide seating for the guests, while brightly colored art adds color to the space and an interesting light fixture ties the room together.
