Wagner . . . . . . . ."Thanks Jill for recommending I purchase two leather chairs! I love the beautiful design, quality of the leather and most of all, it is so comfortable! Since the dining table has not arrived yet, two of the chairs have found a new home. Glad I ordered six chairs, because these two may not return to the dining room! Never thought of this location for these chairs, but they fit right in and even more comfortable than the 'scoop chairs' I was planning to use in this space. The EWF Modern table lamp looks great too! Can't decide if it should stay here or downstairs in the front den so it can be seen from the street. Nice problem!" - C. Gard . . . . . . . .

We ordered a custom-built dining room table, buffet, and media console, as well as dining-room chairs and lamps.

We recently met with Gillian and her husband John (our 2016 Room Makeover Giveaway Winners) to reveal our design plan! We showed them two different ways of using the same sofa, accent chairs and media console. What differentiates the two palettes is the rug, ottoman and upholstery selections.
THE CLASSIC MOD PALETTE Light, warm + handsome THE STORMY MOD PALETTE Dark, moody + playful THE CORE FURNISHINGS
As you can see from the floorplans, we changed things around! A sofa and pair of chairs replace their sofa chaise and sentimental chair (which we recommended they move to another space). We pivoted the furnishings 90 degrees counter clockwise. The seating arrangement focuses on a new large media console and central ottoman/coffee table. The sofa, chairs and media console set the aesthetic tone for the room because of their scale. We picked these pieces because of how they compliment Gillian and John's Mid Century Modern home + design taste:
ADDITIONAL FURNITURE + GALLERY WALL
To create a welcoming and functional landing zone in their entryway, we suggested a gallery wall of their existing artwork with a new console table, table lamp and pair of stools beneath it. We understood why they're fond of the vertical blinds and suggested they simply update them with a more modern design.
DARK PALETTE OTTOMAN FABRIC
LIGHT PALETTE OTTOMAN FABRIC
After our presentation, Gillian shared in an email that “it was great coming in and seeing the design you put together for our front room! There are a lot of good options to think about, and how they work with our lifestyle”. We’ll be hearing from them soon about which direction they want to go and will update you on their final selections!
