Kitchen Banquette Dining TableModern Dining Room, Chicago
Taking transitional to trans-minimal for this piece proved to be a fun find and fantastic solution. A pair of Ikea bases fashioned after the great Eero Saarinen’s iconic tulip table was custom fitted with a wood top. To pull the visual story together, the tabletop was stained darker to match the custom floors. The bright white banquet benches were sealed with a semi-gloss finish to balance the home’s modern and traditional pairing. Custom pillows in brown tones brought in soft, natural touches.The round light fixture echoed the circular table bases and pulled the whole room together.
