"In the dining room we designed a table where the two long slabs of walnut are joined by a series of butterfly joints, lacquered in various shades of turquoise. The chairs surrounding the table are vintage Paul McCobb, lacquered in turquoise as well. The bookshelf wall is painted in a bold geometric pattern of four shades of red. The bright color is balanced by a collection of earthy wood, ceramic and glass objects handmade by Brooklyn and Portland artists, including Laura Buchan and Michelle Quan. The black globes of the David Weeks chandelier are echoed in the pendant lights we installed in the adjacent kitchen."
