Rift-cut oak shows the least amount of a "cathedral" pattern in the wood grain; very linear. We like to mix in quarter-sawn sometimes to get at least a little movement with the grain (as compared to doing all plain-sawn).

@jamesthomas, LLC: Thank you for your reply. I'm beginning to see that looking at pictures of both. Plain-sawn is different from quarter sawn? Quarter sawn has more movement than rift sawn. It seems more choices lean toward rift sawn (but a majority of those were contemporary light toned finishes - so a more lineal pattern may be part of the reason for picking the rift cut......your observations please). We're going with white oak - I'm leaning toward mixing rift cut w/some quarter sawn based on your comments. We have to play with the stain but what I'm looking for is a diluted coffee tone (dark, but able to see wood grain).

Hi Joy. I am so sorry but we no longer have the paint schedule for this particular project. Thought "Revere Pewter" from Benjamin Moore has been our go-to neautral as of late.

Greetings. The fireplace insert was original to the owner before we started the project. Montego is a great brand to look at for modern fireplace inserts.

The surface of the fireplace is a tile. The tile is called "rock face" and is available at Materials Marketing in Chicago.

The floors were stained to match an existing color. We don't have the exact formula but try using a blend of Classic Gray and Ebony from Minwax. Use only a little Ebony (1 part Ebony to 3 parts Gray).

Also try Room and Board in Costa Mesa, CA. That's where I got my large square dining table after much searching. They customize the size to your measurements.

Greetings ram5958. Glad you were able to find the chairs pictured above. For our project, the chairs were already owned by our client - we just simply had them recovered in a fabric to coordinate with the palette.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The square dining table belonged to the owners, and Riker says it worked great in the space. He had the chairs recovered and added an oversized round Ochre chandelier to ground the space. "The living room has some big pieces of furniture, so we wanted this to be a very sparse room and didn't want to clutter it up with a rug."
