What Houzz contributors are saying:
I am reminded of classic pairings: love and marriage, Hepburn and Tracy, red wine and chocolate (yum!), and modern and rustic. This little cottage, with its rustic architectural features, is served so very well by these sculptural and modern Eames chairs.
The cottage was designed to serve as both a guest retreat and a studio for the wife, who makes jewelry when she isn't working in the medical device industry. The challenge, she says, was to make it so that guests didn't feel like they were sleeping in an art studio. (And to keep bits of jewelry from falling into the cracks between the floorboards.)Boes devised storage for all the jewelry-making supplies, so they're tucked out of sight when not in use. The resulting space looks like a kitchen, although building codes prevented the owners from installing an actual kitchen in the cottage.
