This 10' long, custom, teak dining table we designed has lots of stories and has seen it's fair share of dinner parties. Brought back from Bali...we learned a thing or two about the design process. The versitile and classic Panton chairs by Vitra always make a statement and can be grouped with the most modern of spaces, MCM classics, or even as a way to spice up a much more traditional table. And not everything in a custom home has to be 100% custom or pricey - pairing up that $10 t shirt with the irreplaceable leather jacket is a trick we use often to help balance out the budget...Ikea and Target has their place, too, when done right, and they have some great pieces to incorporate, guilt free! The Besta cabinet system makes for some great additional storage and also serves as a buffet - floating above the floor just so gives it a lighter appearance and makes for easy cleaning. The grass green shag??? Well that's Ikea, too...when grouped together as a series, it looks like one huge area rug...and if anyone spills some red wine that you can't clean out, it's no big deal for the reasonable price point. We even bought a few extra to have on hand just in case).
