The Dining Room

Booth-like Benches:  The banquettes, which comfortably fit two people, are a casual and streamlined way to seat a crowd without the busy look of so many chairs.

Mirror Image: Fanned-out paddles are a sculptural, cheeky take on the classic round mirror.

Custom Job: Can’t find a striped fabric that floats your boat? Try piecing together solids in the width of your choice for a graphic color-block effect, like that of the banquette slipcovers.

Sheer Bliss: Pleated linen draperies filter bright seaside light and lend an ethereal quality to the space.

Sky Blue Hue: The dreamy wall shade is a soft backdrop for the starker contrast between the navy and white upholstery. Tip: Vary blues for a more sophisticated, less matchy-matchy look.
