A long, modern dining table surrounded by Eames molded plastic side chairs has a view to the courtyard surrounding this modern, glass-walled house on Lake Lugano, Switzerland. The 3,658-square-foot structure was designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni and completed in 2010.
Gallery white walls form a backdrop for Mid-Century Modern furniture in this clean, bright living space. An Eames armchair and ottoman team with a pair of Wassily chairs and Marimekko-style artwork for a chic, retro look. A vintage wood stove is both functional and a fun conversation piece.
Accent pieces lend vibrant color to this sunny corner. The built-in banquette occupies one end of an open plan kitchen. Bold, yellow Eames-style dining chairs team with fun fabrics on the banquette to liven up the room's otherwise neutral palette. Wood tones bring an earthy touch that warms up the space.
The eating area of this modern, yet cozy kitchen is bursting with fun accents that give it an eclectic, collected vibe. The custom banquette's warm wood finish is repeated on the kitchen cabinetry. The brass finish on the modern light fixture is repeated throughout the open concept living space. Yellow Eames-style dining chairs provide a fun punch of color.
Paul plays with texture and shape in the living room, adding to its fanciful aesthetic. The furnishings are a mix of modern classics, including Eames seating, an Arne Jacobson Swan Sofa, and an Arco Floor Lamp. Color and texture are on display through art. The yellow flowers in the canvas over the sofa are three-dimensional and roughly textured, while a painted chair injects a rainbow of colors into the room.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the previous kitchen is now a powered room and storage in the newly expanded kitchen. The kitchen sits where the dining area used to be, extending into the dining/living room where the country kitchen now sits. A custom kitchen dining table extends from the Ceasarstone countertop island called Misty Carrera. The layout was inspired by the Italian kitchen where the household help would often eat at their workspace, thus the extended island and dining table. The chandelier sits over the fixed island as the dining table is bound to be moved around. The dining chairs are an eclectic collection of Eames and Ikea rattan, mismatched to give the feeling of an informal gathering where newly added guests will pull up any chair they can find. The island houses a microwave and lots of storage space and ample storage is found on the back wall where there was once the kitchen. The cabinets are stained opaque, both grey and white, with Benjamin More. The flooring found throughout stone brown red oak from Mercer. The wall color is called Milk Paint from Behr.
