Scarsdale This dining room design uses a dark chevron-patterned wood veneer wall covering to create a sophisticated cocoon-like feeling fit for hosting years of special occasions. The dark upper walls are balanced with a crisp white wood coffered ceiling and wainscoting. Half-circle brushed brass scones are positioned to highlight the wall covering and the round wood table is topped off by a dramatic, clear bubble fixture that has a light and airy look.

Irvington This modern and classic dining room features custom black wood built-ins with gold leaf paint on the interior. The Verellen dining room table gives the room a casualness while still looking sophisticated, and the gold chandelier compliments the gold leaf in the cabinets.

Rye To maximize seating in this square space, a large round dining table was added to accommodate eight people. With a starburst patterned rosewood top and hammered polished nickel base, it makes an elegant statement. It is paired with slender dining chairs. There is high wainscoting and metallic grass cloth wallpaper used on the walls to envelope the space topped off by pops of red in the pendant, draperies, and artwork.
