I'm taking a couple of days off to spend time with the kids, but before I do I want to share this new project that I'm working on.
Our client came to our shop on Friday to look at some of the pieces that will be going into her dining room. Our idea is to combine some industrial, Swedish, and garden elements to create an informal yet elegant dining room.
A pair of these basket lamps will hang over an 11 foot zinc table, similar to the one in our sun room...
We've ordered a pair of these Belfort Wingback Dining Chairs from Restoration Hardware to sit at the ends of the table. They will be upholstered in a worn chocolate leather. The other chairs will be slip-covered in an off-white linen.
The table and chairs will sit on top of a Luxe Silver Topaz natural woven carpet from Merida, similar to this one in our shop.
A pair of bronze picture lights from Circa Lighting will be installed above the wood panels to illuminate the urns.
We're also adding these weathered wood architectural elements on top of the side windows to add interest and height.
A pair of these lanterns will replace the existing sconces by the windows.
I showed my client this image of Barbara Wiseley's home as inspiration for the window treatments.

Because the draperies will be stationary side panels, we are going to use these Belgian Linen panels from Restoration Hardware in "Sand". A woven shade will be used to add height to the window.
My client fell in love with this Swedish Buffet and antique French mirror in the shop, so they will be added to her dining room as well.
By the end of June, this garden dining room will be complete. Just in time for summer!
Have a wonderful weekend.
