Like many of the pieces that were selected for the home (salvaged from roadsides or Cape Town junk shops), the dining table was given a fresh coat of paint. With a locally made metal chandelier and chairs painted the same shade as the tabletop, the room takes on a contemporary-meets-French-countryside look.
The chandelier is from Garden Bleu; the chairs are by the du Preez family.
