Front on view of banquet area. This seats a family of 3 kids and two adults and they love this area of their kitchen and also do homework here and arts and crafts. The table is driftwood with a custom marine finish on top buffed out so anything can be spilled on it and it won't get damaged. Fabric is 100% nylon so super durable and though the pic appears crowded there is over 20 inches on both sides to get into the back banquet.
The nook was already there-as you can see from the BEFORE picture. It just needed a window and I put in something oval-one of my favorite shapes and the clock that was previously there was about the right size and I designed everything backwards-custom-from there.

The oval custom window was not cheap. This shape is expensive. It required masonry work and about two weeks of work to get it perfect. Thankfully the client had the money and was willing to spend to see the vision through. This is the most key aspect to creating beauty often in renovations.

That is not wallpaper. Its a hand painted canvas by Simes Studios in Chicago and then they wallpaper it on. So its a custom painting more or less. They are a high end vendor but clients love them!

Everything is pretty much custom in homes like these....you are not going to get something that fits exact unless its bench made.

How much space is there in the side seats? - Most of my family could not fit in the two side seats. And I'm not sure if the inconvenience of getting in and out of the back area is worth the look.

Its just looks that way from the photograph. We pull the chairs out for them so it will look better but there is about 25 inches of space for people to get into the back. Its very easy and accomodating. Just appears tight but that is because of how the picture was manipulated for symmetry.

Very easily-the end chairs are just pulled out for the pics. Look at the side shot. You can see there is about 25" of space on each side.

The chairs are custom made as well. I do a lot of custom designed pieces. They are $600 per chair plus COM for fabric. There is fabric for the back and the front. One if an armchair and the others are side chairs.

It's a bradley-hughes base with a painted wood top, that was done by my wood guy. Bradley Hughes had a similar top that is pretty blue/griege and very durable. I'd try them: bradley-hughes.com

I found the chandelier on David Iatesta website. It says it is 45" high I guess not considering a chain to hang it. I have 9' ceilings and the table is 30'' high. If I have to add a chain of at least 12" + 45", I don't think it's possible because it is going to be too low. What do you think? Thank you so much for your opinion.

This ceiling in this house is 11 feet high. Its a large chandelier in scale as well. I think a 9 foot ceiling isn't high enough.

LET ME ADD FURTHER TO MY ORIGINAL COMMENT ABOVE!
The special wall treatment adds a personality and character to the very cool and rather impersonal atmosphere of the very well designed interior. Making this alcove inviting to live in, attractive in a significant way beyond pleasing proportions and gorgeous furniture.

The idea came from our studio for the painting.

I needed something very specific that would compliment a Meredith Pardue abstract painting commissioned for the family room. I found this book on art display I had in my library by Stephanie Hoppen.

I showed them this italian painter modern painting with scribble like writing from this Stephanie Hoppen book-and wanted the drips, the chalky like smeared background the watercolor like colors and black writing-I needed to incorporate the colors in the tile in the kitchen across from it , the fabrics, the blues and greens in table top and colors from the painting diagonal from where this mural would be.

He had to enlarge the scale of the writing and did his own interpretation of writing and was given cues on color from the fabrics I gave him that would go underneath, the tile from the kitchen and from taking a picture of the painting that would be diagonal across the way.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Overscale writing flows across the wall of this dining area, adding a soft, graceful note and a layer of graphic interest.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Dining Rooms on Houzz
Coziness can mean having to make at least four people get up in order for you to leave the table. While this sounds inconvenient, it's just part of the price paid for clever space saving, and it's really not that big a deal.
