The cabinet was custom made from Cherry veneer. We used touch-latch hardware so there are no handles visible. Thank you for your comment.

The floor tile is the same stone used in the Apple stores... it is Jane Grey sandstone from Vermont.

Oops... sorry for the delayed response on these... just saw them. The color we used throughout was "swiss coffee". A great go-to shade of white.

How are the treads attached to the stringers? Are the stringers notched or is there some sort of hardware? Thank you in advance for your answer!

The main stairs stringers are existing, we just replaced the treads. The stringers are not notched as the treads are attached with a custom steel bracket that was manufactured back in the 50s.

Inside wood walls are redwood t&g. Wood ceiling? Any ipe on inside? Or outside? Seems like all redwood which assume is mjch cheaper.

Hi, beautiful wood on the wall! Can you elaborate on the stain used? Do you know weather it was water based or oil or alkyd resin based? If you have the brand that would help too! I'm having a heck of a time figuring out the best way to acheive a natural looking protective finish on redwood. Thanks so much for your time!

The lamps were bought at a furniture store in San Francisco called Limn. Sorry... Can't remember the manufacturer but they are Italian and were quite reasonably priced for being made of silk.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
ellie48, there you go:

- click on "add to ideabook" below the photo you would like to add to the "dining rooms" ideabook.
- Then, enter the new ideabook name at the bottom of the dialog box, where it says "or new ideabook:".
- Click on "add to ideabook" and you're done.

Next time you add a photo to an ideabook, you will be able to select the desired ideabook from the dropdown.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This dining room seems as though you could move a few elements around and turn it into a loading dock. Architects have learned a lot about scale and how to adapt it to living spaces from converted factory spaces.
This wide-open space looks like it might have had a past life as a loading dock, but floating built-ins, beautiful wood panels, and tubular chairs and finishes give it a rich look. More: Warm and Seductive Loft in Milan Trends That Won't Die: Industrial Elements A Little Sparkle, a Little Shine Great Ways With Silver Leaf
John Hill added this to Level Changes: Defining Spaces
... It's a dining room with an intimacy aided by its remove from the living room, from both the level change and the wall dividing the two spaces. Note how the ascent of the stairs follows the upward angle of the roof.
Becky Harris added this to Totally Tubular Chairs
Here is another iconic machine-age tubular chair, the Brno Chair by Mies van der Rohe. He designed the chair in 1930, the same year he became the director of the Bauhaus.
Samantha Schoech added this to The Ins and Outs of Northern California Style
Open stairs, minimal design, lots of natural wood and, you guessed it, natural light galore. This is modern Northern California minimalism at its best.
Objects don’t have to consume the entire floor-to-ceiling volume of space to be powerful organizing devices. The cherry cabinet on the left wall is a contrasting singular design move against the white wall. Acting as a floating counter and display area, it also conceals a large amount of storage. The broad, linear horizontal proportion hovering above the floor is a commanding gesture. Its object-like nature is reinforced by the clean surfaces, free of ornament and hardware. The architects have used touch latches to maintain a face free of distractions — a great technique when using the cabinetry as divider object concept.
