Merilane Avenue Residence 2 Dining Room

2011 ASID Award Winning Design

This 10,000 square foot home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home that would serve them for the rest of their lives. Our goal was to build and furnish a European-inspired home that feels like ‘home,’ accommodates parties with over one hundred guests, and suits the homeowners throughout their lives.

We used a variety of stones, millwork, wallpaper, and faux finishes to compliment the large spaces & natural light. We chose furnishings that emphasize clean lines and a traditional style. Throughout the furnishings, we opted for rich finishes & fabrics for a formal appeal. The homes antiqued chandeliers & light-fixtures, along with the repeating hues of red & navy offer a formal tradition.

Of the utmost importance was that we create spaces for the homeowners lifestyle: wine & art collecting, entertaining, fitness room & sauna. We placed fine art at sight-lines & points of interest throughout the home, and we create rooms dedicated to the homeowners other interests.

I am looking at putting a 118 inch table in a 15ft long x 13 ft wide room. I will only have about 3 feet from table to the wall and am trying to think if that will be okay. THe room is relatively open as it is abreast to a hallway on one end and another hallway on the side...

It's going to look odd havingsuch a long table in a room with so little space at the ends and a vast amount of space on the sides.

Your room - since it's nearly square - may be better suited to a 60" round table instead.
