Dining/Living RoomContemporary Dining Room, Detroit
These totally hip homeowners love mid-century modern design. Since this dining area is open to the kitchen, we added the silver leaf wallcovering to bring the feeling of the stainless steel appliances into this room. We knew this room will potentially have food and drink disasters, so the Knoll chairs are covered in a very durable and chic chocolate brown metallic vinyl, and we used carpet tiles which can be easily replaced if stained. The custom walnut and chrome table expands to seat 12; we designed the custom sofa at right to be used as a split banquet in such instances. The hand-woven mohair drapery completes the room, and is a warm contrast to the silver leaf wall.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Alternate stripe orientation in a checkerboard pattern. This area rug is composed of tiles that have a light striped grain running through them, and the vertical and the horizontal have been arranged in a checkerboard. The subtle pattern of straight lines and squares grounds this mid-century inspired room.
Bring texture to the walls. A variation of the silver leaf wall treatment from the previous picture, this treatment brings dimensionality to the walls using several shades of silver leaf layered on top of one another. The depth created using this technique is subtle and elegant for this mid-century inspired space.
If you want subtle, no problem. The neutral area rug adds parquet texture without upstaging the beautiful wall treatment and art.
