Walls don't necessarily create a room. Here, a meticulously sized area rug, suspended cabinetry, and drop ceiling with recessed pot lighting visually define this dining "room" without walls. A cluster of illuminated globes floats above the table, their round silhouettes a pleasing balance to the millwork and table's angularity.
Tradition with a contemporary outlook, this formal eating area blends fringed table lamps and an antique-style buffet with wrought iron table and skirted chairs. A small print with oversized matt is framed by two narrow, stained glass windows – a balance of old and new, large and small. And from the local market, a vase of fresh cut tulips makes any day a day to celebrate.
White on white on white with the barest hint of black and azure, this sophisticated dining space says "welcome to upscale, modern city living." No cabinets or storage mar the uncluttered lines, no ornamentation competes for attention. Only a trio of pictures and nine glass candleholders introduce a touch of visual softness into the snowy, austere beauty.
