    I'm having an R replicated but was wondering if you knew the width? Also if you still have the T wouldn't mind seeing a picture of it.

    55w x 89h x 4d. T looks just like the R (color/size/font). Email me privately for more info if necessary.

    It was part of a old marquee sign on a building. I'm not sure its origin or what larger name it was a part of, as I purchased it second hand.

    Hi. They are just red oak hardwood floors. They are from 1968. No brand.

    The seats are wood (you can see the back in the photo). Our friend Leslie Oschmann at finds old paintings at flea markets and then collages them onto vintage furniture. We love them!

    7. Turn a shelf into a plant display. Devoting a floating shelf to your houseplant collection is a great way to save floor space, combine smaller potted plants to make a bigger impact and bring little plants up to eye level.If you’re hanging a new shelf, position it in an area close to a window, such as in a sunny area of the dining or living room. Mix in other natural items, like shells, or use brass candlesticks, small sculptures, framed pictures or other home accessories to create a vignette.

    Industrial style. Industrial and salvage elements made their way into dining rooms, with vintage wooden chairs, factory table bases and light fixtures being the top spots to insert machine-age touches. In this midcentury modern-inspired room, a gigantic R from a marquee sign grabs attention.

    4. Make a green commitment for Earth Day. Living a bit more lightly on our planet doesn’t need to be difficult. For instance, the next time you need to shop for a piece of furniture, seek out a reclaimed piece or shop vintage. For an everyday change, get in the habit of using cloth napkins instead of paper at the dinner table, or keep a basket of rags (cut up old T-shirts, for instance) on hand for wiping up spills.

    The dining room has a mix of custom pieces, salvaged finds and new designs for a space that reflects the couple’s style. The dining table came from Anthropologie; the dining chairs are by Leslie Oschmann and have recycled paintings folded over midcentury frames. The “R” is from a marquee sign. The lights are by Terence Woodgate.The couple renovated the house in phases, working through each room over five years. During that time the two continuously worked together and made each decision collaboratively. “This means something as simple as choosing pendants over the dining table can take a really long time, but we always get something that we both love,” Robert says.
