From The New Design Project:

“In the Dining Room, the blue and green color palette imbues the space with a sense of calm and serenity. Clean lined mid-century lounge chairs are paired with a vintage Moroccan rug and petrified wood side table to create a graceful seating area. Meanwhile, the marble and walnut dining table is matched with vintage caned dining chairs that have been reupholstered in a mid-century inspired blue-green fabric. The custom chandelier, based on a design by Lindsey Adelman, brings a sense of architectural theatre to the space. All artwork by The New Design Project.”
