Get This Look!

I saw this dining room on Dwell this morning and fell in love with it!

Pacific Heights Remodel Dining Room by Nicole Hollis

 

The room was designed by Nicole Hollis of Nicole Hollis Interior Design and is located in Pacific Heights. Check out the full article for more information on the entire space.

I thought I would put together a few piece that could help you replicate this space in your own home.

First, the farm house table:

With the farm house bench:

Along with the modern wing back chair:

All three of the pieces above are from West Elm

Once you know the placement of your table, have an electrician install two j-boxes above the table and install two of these fixtures:

Besa Lighting Pendant Light- 1KV Tamburo Collection

Besa Lighting Pendant Light- 1KV Tamburo Collection

This fixture is by Besa Lighting and can be purchased from Form Plus Function.

The last major piece is the mirror. A mirror this size can be fabricated by a local glass shop. Have them put a simple frame around it and prop it against the wall and secure it to achieve the same effect as the picture above.

Add some clear glass tableware and you will have a great room!

Versatile Seating!

August 4, 2009

I’m Back! And, I have for you some great pieces of seating… So let’s get started!

Icon Counter Stool by Emeco and Philippe Starck

This first piece of seating is the Icon Counter Stool by Philippe Starck and Emeco (emeco.net). It is made of 100% Aluminum, 80% of which is recycled, and also comes in a chair and a bar stool. What makes this chair great is that you can basically get it in any color you want! The standard is either brushed aluminum or polished aluminum, but you can also Special Order it powder coated to meet your color specifications. I love the versatility of this chair!

Bunny Girl Chair by Sawaya & Moroni

This second piece is the Bunny Girl Chair by Sawaya & Moroni (sawayamoroni.com). The chair is formed with one piece of molded plywood which rests on legs of chromed steel in either a polished or satin finish. This chair would look amazing in a contemporary cafe setting. If you order more than 20, you can get the chair in any color you want.

Section Bench by Council

Lastly, this is the Section Bench by Council (councildesign.com). This flexible piece is perfect as seating, storage, and display. It measures at 88″w x 16″ h and can be manufactured in veneered wood, upholstery, stainless steel for outdoor use, and powder coated. I would love to use this in an outdoor application. The versatility of the individual pieces (which can also be stacked and joined together) would allow for a multitude of configurations.
