A mountain house dining room designed by Robert Brown in Cashiers, North Carolina.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Brown imagined that the clients for such a space might be a retired couple with grandchildren. Accordingly, he placed lightweight wing chairs at either end of the table, setting them atop casters so the couple could slide in and out with ease. He placed a bench along the side, figuring it would be perfect for the kids. The orange upholstery is echoed in the pillows in the adjoining sitting area. “It needed a little something,” Brown muses. “And I wouldn’t want to put a color in one space and not repeat it in another.” He opted for a lantern instead of a conventional chandelier. “It looks like something I could have picked up in the South of France,” he says. But it came from South of Market in his hometown of Atlanta, so it was a lot less expensive.Wing chair: Baker; table, Holland & Company; “gourds” on table: lacquer over brass, Robert Kuo; mirror: antique; Ushak carpet: Moattar; lantern: South of Market
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Very cool art on either side of the fireplace. The small chests used beneath the pictures are a smart choice; they look good and they add extra storage. This rug is different than the one in the living room, but they coordinate beautifully. The light fixture over the table is appropriately rustic for the room. I love the table. I like the use of benches as side chairs, especially since these appear to be extra wide, suitable to accommodate your larger friends. I think this designer has done a really good job with color, bringing in enough of the accent color without its being overwhelming. The chair is from Baker.
