Amy Bartlam

Building on the Breakfast Nook table we designed for our clients' remodeled Tudor home, we were commissioned to create two additional key pieces for their dining room. Our challenge was to integrate our design with their existing dining table and chair set while providing storage for their fine china, glassware, and heirloom ceramics, and also finding a functional, aesthetic and easily accessible solution to store their dining table leaf extension.

Our approach blended traditional Tudor elements with transitional style details and eclectic modern forms, creating a cohesive design that harmonized with the home's existing interior language. The result was a unique corner piece that we refer to as our "cabinet of curiosity" that houses their glassware and a secret vertical compartment to store the table leaf and a large ribbed sideboard, on the wall adjacent, for all their ceramics and larger china. These pieces provided ample storage and reflected the exterior colors of the house and the interior palette of the kitchen, seamlessly tying the spaces together.
