Dining Room/Living Room

Dramatic Transitional Dining Room by Jane Ellison

Dining Room-Quiet side of Drama

A custom-cut piece of glass tops a Saarinen tulip table base framed by a curvaceous silk-velvet settee and a wood bench stands in place of a conventional dining set in the dining area. I didn't want the clutter of a lot of chairs. It would have interfered with the calm of the room. Timber bamboo, lustrous overscale Vietnamese pottery, a trio of sparkling Thai mirrors, and nearly a dozen candles interspersed with smooth dark stones enhance the dining area's grown-up appeal.

Designs for Living: Inspiring Banquettes

Curved seating mimics the shape of an oval table, taking full advantage of each inch of dining space. Love this dining space and how two different benches are used for seating instead of the traditional dining set of chairs. The mix of fabric is glamorous yet comfortable, and not stuffy at all.
