Smart use of both space and statement pieces leads the theme in this dramatic dining room. The round oak table can be extended by a leaf for additional seating or serves as a more intimate dining area. The table’s cohorts are eye-catching favorites – four teal, tufted velvet, wing-back parsons dining chairs. The chairs’ bold color, tall backs, and bradded upholstery add visual interest in this large space. Overhead, a modern chandelier with crystal charms adds a touch of glamor, yet still lends warmth with its amber tone and sheer, glowing drum shade. With 18-foot-high ceilings and voluminous windows, drapes help soften light angles in the room. An embroidered linen fabric for the drapes was chosen to continue the rich and dramatic tones and textures.
