A Swedish-inspired dining table and sideboard. The rustic tabletop and the sideboard’s hand-rubbed finish downplay formality. The room’s one dressy note is a crystal chandelier Lillian designed, with inspiration from a Russian antique.
Teapots and pretty plates are displayed in a painted cupboard with chicken-wire doors.
Chinese porcelain urns look amazing in contrast with the English Handblock Wallcoverings featureing red flowers.
