What Houzz contributors are saying:
SquareA square table is a contemporary choice that can make conversation easier, but it does have a few downsides. A square table tends to take up a vast amount of room — more than you think it will — and although it allows everyone seated at the table to see one another, the distance from one side of the table to the other means people may not be able to hear one another particularly well when there are numerous conversations going on at once. Also, unless you have a lazy Susan in the middle, passing food from one side of the table to the other usually involves a dish’s having to circumnavigate the table for it to arrive at the desired location.Molded plywood lounge chair: Eames
This project has plywood as the finished ceiling surface below the ceiling framing. In this instance, the panel joints influence how refined the space feels. The architect and contractor have centered the joints between the windows and the lights in each panel. These are details that require a little extra foresight but go a long way to making the interior feel crafted and intentional.
