Upper Staircase

This is no ordinary landing; it’s practically another room! Because the home’s traditional architecture is so clean and simple, we were able to contrast it with contemporary fabrics and artwork. Our client’s miniature chairs fit perfectly in the niche---a collection always has more impact when grouped together. We covered the window seat in a graphic Italian fabric, and added a bronze spot table to hold a book or glass of wine. Contemporary graffiti artwork completes the space. We’re told it’s a favorite place to sit, read, and watch the world go by.

Hello. The lantern is vintage, and original to this house. You may find something similar at Circa Lighting. Best regards! Charles Dunlap
