This living / dining room is in a unique loft conversion in a stunning Art Deco building. The owners moved here from a house in the suburbs where they discovered that their furnishings did not work in this setting. Their previous furniture was traditional in style and too large for this space. An essential  criteria was to include a dining table that didn't overwhelm the room. It needed to be able to be used everyday by the owners but also needed to accommodate a party of six for dinners. Also at the top of the list was a need to have a table that fit in with the architecture of this building. This table cleverly expands to comfortably  seat six while the 1940's french inspired chairs can be pulled up to the table along with the banquette situated on the opposite wall. The multi purpose use of the chairs allows the room to breathe without being cluttered.                                                                                                                                             Because the cement walls would not allow us to hardwire sconces into the wall, we chose a plug-in wall light and changed the original ordinary electrical cord to a bright yellow cloth cord to act as a feature. The small red  lacquered table with it's white faux  lizard skin inset perfectly enhances the clients's statue of the asian lady and nestles into the corner of the room. Our palette is bold and daring with its use of color and patterns but with the relative neutrality of the walls and carpet, it creates a cheerful yet still calming atmosphere.
