THE POWER OF WHITE
The dining room in the Victorian-style London home of Suzanne and Christopher Sharp—the founders of the Rug Company—has a bohemian spirit. French Provincial chairs and mother-of-pearl chairs from India surround an oak table that belonged to Suzanne’s grandmother. The Sharps found the wrought-iron chandelier in a Cairo souk, and the antique crystal mirror was purchased from a London antiques.
PARED TO PERFECTION
Architect Richard Gluckmancreated this gallery-like space in Kim Heirston and Pentti Kouri’s loft in New York’s SoHo district. Gluckman designed the cocktail table to compliment a pair of minimalist linen-covered sofas.
Mix and Match
Designer Gabriel de la Portilla conjured a modern dining room with whimsical touches for Rita Noroña Schrager and her daughters in their New York City apartment overlooking the Hudson River. The Tulip chairs by Knoll are upholstered in flokati sheepskin rugs from ABC Carpet & Home and surround a Saarinen-style dining table, also from ABC Carpet & Home. A 1950s aluminum-antler chair by Arthur Court, purchased from Mondo Cane, adds a quirky note.
Vintage-fashion purveyor Keni Valenti used white to unify the diverse and quirky furnishings in the dining area of his Miami Beach home, painting the dining chairs, a wood chandelier, porcelain figures, and a Brueton pedestal table—all of which are vintage. The mirrored wall emphasizes the monochromatic scheme.
