Table for Six

Informal meets formal in the dining area, where a pair of casual settees provides contrast to the more traditional upholstered slipper chairs. The settee' generous dimensions balance the visual weight of the 7-foot table, custom-made for the space from salvaged red oak. Above the table, a wrought-ironn lantern makes a dramatic statement.
