A Lavender and White Dining Room


I love the freshness of this lavender and white dining room. And it looks so chic too. The 1969 eyeball light fixture looks very interesting over the 1956 Eero Saarinen-designed pedestal table. And the chairs, oh the chairs are divine,they are 1920s Louis XV-style chairs from Sotheby’s in lavender leather from Libra Leather feature backs in a vintage floral-print vinyl. Owner and designer Doug Meyer painted the 1950s Heywood Wakefield chest purple to match and it did look fabulous in there. And don't you just love the sheer curtains that allows enough sunlight to come in?

Hello Ann:
A bold design indeed and there is surely something seriously decadent about upholstering 1920s chairs in lavender leather. We find the 'eye' somewhat disturbing and cannot quite imagine eating at the table whilst being peered at. But the lavender painted chest is great fun!

Something Gorgeous said...

I agree with Jane and Lance and am a little concerned about the 'eye' watching me eat.
Love the chest.

The chairs in lavender are perfect.
This color is so peaceful, I don't know if I'd use it in a dining room, but I guess I like it the way it's done in this case.
Have a nice week.
