Kiawah Family Home beach style living room

Kiawah Family Home

Four swivel chairs in petit, hand-blocked print are situated around a reclaimed iron and wood coffee table. Root stools serve as drink tables between the chairs. A turquoise sofa completes the seating. Being an island home, the seagrass rug adds the casual tone to the over design. Wool sheer draperies soften the wall of glass and protect the room in the off season.

Want to use swivels-how much space between chairs needed for swivel? - have a room approximately same size and found I needed to leave so much more space around swivels to get them to work. Are these limited swivels or ? I'd need them to swivel for when we all watch tv.

These floors were existing when we were hired by our client. Your area flooring showroom or flooring resource should be able to help.

what kind of doors are those? Do they slide completely out of sight?

They are sliding doors. They stack back on top of each other but do not slide completely out of sight.

I'm afraid that we don't have a record of the doors. Our clients purchased the home after construction was completed.
