What is the size of the Pull? I've only found one Oval and it's 6 3/4" X 2.5" with a Bead around the edge, does seem like the one you have shown here? They call it Nastagia Pocket Door Pull? Thank you!

How wide is the pocket door opening? How many sqft is the rest of the floor/what is rough layout? - We are planning to renovate parlor floor with kitchen similarly laid out, but in a 20' wide house. Wondering how open to keep the kitchen to the rest of the house (balancing desire to let light through to other areas and desire to keep living and dining with a bit more formal feel. Thank you!!

Hi, It is a 6'-4" wide opening. The house is 25' wide with the kitchen in the back (part of it seen here). This view is looking from the dining room which is in the center with a living room up front. Hope this helps.

Thanks Ben. I must have a thing for Elizabeth Cooke King's design sense! But you guys did an amazing job on this house. From the mantles, to stair redo to drop dead elegant iron work in the back. When I hit the lottery, I'll be giving you a call. thanks!

Hi this is Sophia from Ben's office. You know, its actually a bit hard to tell, I think it is clear glass but in some photos it looks like it has a tint of beige in it. There are two other very obviously clear glass chandeliers at the parlor level in different shapes. The smokey hue in the kitchen chandelier may be from the thickness and shape of the glass.

Hi- it is a Saarinen table base with a custom top made from the same stone as the kitchen counters- azul macuba. This was designed by the interior designer, Elizabeth Cooke-King.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Breakfast Nooks, Sunny Side Up
7. If your nook is not in a bay, place it close to windows or doors. French doors and transom windows combined with white-painted walls and light floors provide plenty of light for this tucked-aside, curved breakfast spot.
Becky Harris added this to Style Guide: Bistro Chairs
This variation on the original bentwood chair is the Era chair. Reproductions are available in natural wood and in an array of bright colors. It is available with a caned or solid seat.
