The floors were reclaimed boards from an 1880’s barn in Osseo, Wisconsin. Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Murphy positioned the breakfast alcove to take full advantage of morning light. The leather sheet chairs are from Vermont, and the vintage rack came from a French pharmacy.A few unexpected modern touches keep the space fresh, including stainless steel kitchen counters, an Eames lounge chair and outsider art.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Dining Rooms on Houzz
Sometimes a dining room is simply a small space where two people can enjoy a meal together. In this comfy gatehouse, two armchairs and a table found a pleasant corner within an open space.See the rest of this home
