Because of its close proximity to the entry, this couple wanted a dramatic, reception lounge that doubles as the formal dining room for special occasions. In the far corners [not shown here] we placed modern wing chairs, that can be pulled up to the table when dining. The table has two leaves, allowing it to seat 6 adults comfortably. The fireplace wall was built out 20+" to house at the new glass-front fireplace.
