A custom 12-foot dining wood and aged iron dining table is surrounded by an elegant mix of upholstered seating, including an oversized pair of klismos-inspired chairs that bookend the table and give it visual weight. The cluster chandeliers and convex mirror emphasize the room's curves and connect with a crescent-shaped structural column that delineates the space.
I must admit, I am slightly obsessed with convex mirrors. I love the impact they add to a space, especially above this pair of dining consoles flanking the butler's pantry. Check out how the distressed frame speaks to the painted driftwood base of the console. The body of the lamp is as porous and textured as the white driftwood, but we specified it in black as a nod to the dining chandelier and to help ground/substantiate the glass tops. The mask is a find from the homeowners’ travels and also works well with the artwork.
Both husband and wife have their own private spaces in the home and this is the entry to the “man-cave.” That’s right, before you get into the actual cave, you can visit the bar! The finishes are a little swank for the typical man-cave, but our client entertains business partners, colleagues and friends alike here. The walls are dressed in a commercial grade flocked, striped wallcovering to capitalize on the bar’s height and detract from its lack of width. I viewed this room as akin to designing a powder room: a small space that needed to make a big impression. The custom cabinets are Macassar ebony and the rug is from my own licensed collection. I even managed to get another convex mirror in the house.
