Contemporary Lower Level

This social couple needed a space to entertain in their classic South Minneapolis home. The White Crane Team transformed their typical Minnesota basement into a beautiful finished lower level. This multi-purpose lower level functions as a family room, home theater, and entertainment area featuring AV components concealed in custom cabinetry, eating counter, and a 3/4 bath. White Crane completed this project using the same quality
fixtures, features, and finishes found in a main floor of the house including a Konecto floating locking floor system, Silestone counter top, and custom clear Alder cabinets. Ebony trim and solid satin nickel hardware contrast the deep brown cabinets and doors. Whether they are
just lounging and watching a flick, or throwing a bash, this space reflects the clients' personal taste and meets the needs of their lifestyle. This project illustrates that remodeling a basement into a finished lower level adds liveable square footage and polish to your home.

Thanks for your question about this White Crane Lower Level. We did the design and build on this project but not the furniture selection, so unfortunately I do not know the origin of the chairs.

bfgmoney, I just realized I didn't answer part of your question. That actually is not a table behind the couch, but a built in eating counter with custom cabinetry and quartz countertop.
