Kiawah Family Home

To take advantage of the view, the designer offset the dining table to the right to enable a pair of spool chairs and ottomans on the left. The trestle table can receive two-24" leaves and the table is pulled to the center of the room for holiday meals. With the business of the room and its variety of uses, tone on tones of grey and blue keep the room calm and sophisticated.

The is an authentic fossil shell that we acquired from a showroom in ADAC. Many boutique home furnishings stores will have one of these occasionally. Most of them, however, are not mounted yet.

I have a large, beautiful conch shell and would love to display it on a stand similar to that shown. Do you know where I might find one? I'm assuming you purchased the fossil shell already attached to the stand?

We did purchase the shell already mounted. It is QUITE heavy. There are two metal rods that affix to the wooden base. A lamp maker might be able to do this for you. Their skill set to make items into lamps is similar.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An offset dining table opposite a pair of spool chairs and ottomans keeps the view to the water open, while a fossil shell statement piece on the console roots the space in coastal style."Tone on tones of gray and blue keep the room calm and sophisticated enough for a casual summer meal or a Thanksgiving dinner," Donaldson says. Chairs, ottomans: Pierce, Stanford Furniture in Cowtan & Tout F3416/08 fabric; cane dining chairs: Parlor Square Arm Chair in Coastal Grey, Palacek, with cushions in Zimmer Rohde fabric
If you have a particularly stunning shell, display it on a sideboard. Its natural beauty is unlike that of any man-made art, and it has an intrinsic understated elegance.Margaret Donaldson Interiors found this authentic fossil shell at a showroom at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Ways to Work With Rugs for Warmth and Beauty
If bold color under oot is not your thing, then go for texture. A textured rug can add just as much dimension to a room as a bold color can. Notice that a similar texture to this rug is repeated on the ceiling.
