We are currently designing a custom 15 ft. long live-edge Acacia wood slab and bronze base dining table for one of our clients and came across this inspirational image. The newly renovated kitchen of Dwell founder Lara Hedberg Deam and her husband, SF architect Christopher Deam features a 14-ft. long live-edge Walnut slab slab below a trio of hammered brass Beat Lights from Tom Dixon.
What a novel way to combine dining area with countertop; and very interesting juxtaposition of marble and wood set against black-stained wood cabinets and walls!


Please see the feature on our clients, "culinary specialists" Larry and Lynn Neuberg, and our design for their kitchen, in the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Luxury Home!

Incorporating acrylic furniture and accessories into a room is great way of creating the illusion of more space .
Acrylic  furniture looks weightless and creates a clean, modern feel. Beautiful when contrasted with rich and varied textures such as fabric, leathers or wood, acrylic accents are a wonderful way to keep a room feeling light and playful.
