Dining/Living Room

These totally hip homeowners love mid-century modern design. Since this dining area is open to the kitchen, we added the silver leaf wallcovering to bring the feeling of the stainless steel appliances into this room. We knew this room will potentially have food and drink disasters, so the Knoll chairs are covered in a very durable and chic chocolate brown metallic vinyl, and we used carpet tiles which can be easily replaced if stained. The custom walnut and chrome table expands to seat 12; we designed the custom sofa at right to be used as a split banquet in such instances. The hand-woven mohair drapery completes the room, and is a warm contrast to the silver leaf wall.

Where can I find this oval table?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hi. I was wondering if you have any more images of the table? It seems in line with what I am looking for, but having a hard time finding. I didn't see any further details on your website. Perhaps something similar could be designed for us? Im in Cleveland. Thanks, Karen

Hi, The chair is the Saarinen Executive Armchair. Can't place the stool but if you wanted something that coordinated, you may want to take a look at the Saarinen Womb Ottoman. FYI, both are on Sale (15% off) starting Feb 25, 2013 at YLiving. Links are below.

Wallpaper isn't a great option for a backsplash in the long run. I bet you could get an equally stunning result from glass tiles that have a foil or silver leaf effect. http://www.archiexpo.com/prod/artistic-tile/glass-tiles-49384-459694.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you want subtle, no problem. The neutral area rug adds parquet texture without upstaging the beautiful wall treatment and art.
Natural woven rugs can anchor a transitional room, especially when paired with soft brown leathers, neutral tones and ethnic handmade looking artwork.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to 8 Great Ways With Silver Leaf
Bring texture to the walls. A variation of the silver leaf wall treatment from the previous picture, this treatment brings dimensionality to the walls using several shades of silver leaf layered on top of one another. The depth created using this technique is subtle and elegant for this mid-century inspired space.
Because of its successful combination of form and function, the chair won the Museum of Modern Art Award and the West Germany Federal Award for Industrial Design in 1969.
Alternate stripe orientation in a checkerboard pattern. This area rug is composed of tiles that have a light striped grain running through them, and the vertical and the horizontal have been arranged in a checkerboard. The subtle pattern of straight lines and squares grounds this mid-century inspired room.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Unexpected Style for Your Wall
