love the wicker furniture. Where is it from? - I have been looking for something similar for the morning room we have in the house. We like more of the contemporary style like this one. Appreciate if you could share where I can look for something similar. Thank you for your time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Dogtrot House
The space transitions to a seating area where furniture is used to reinforce the lines of the architecture. The eye carries on through porch, pool and beyond to into the coastal marsh.
Frederick has looked to the past to inspire green design today. "Since people are now more interested in sustainable design, we are turning to the lessons learned from the vernacular traditions. A few years ago we started exploring other Southern vernacular forms, especially the dogtrot, which is two masses with an open breezeway in between," she says. The room above occupies the breezeway of a dogtrot house. Frederick finds that "dogtrot" is one of the most popular search terms that leads potential clients to the firm's website.
