Hi Kathleen!

The booth was designed by Charlie Simmons of Charlie & Co Design. The fabric and colors were selected by Sandy LaMendola from Twist Interiors. Builder's Choice Cabinetry out of Burnsville, MN did all of the cabinets in this home. Thanks, and good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 18 Ways to Bring English Country Charm Home
The classic Windsor chair is an obvious choice. With their strong frames, these chairs are a great choice for families with young children. They are sturdy and easy to clean, and can be painted. Cushions can be made to soften the wooden seat.
