Slender in profile yet plush, Ada dining chairs encourage guests to linger at the table, and they come in hundreds of upholstery options. Nickel-finished candle holders in three different sizes add a classic touch to the table setting. The sustainable and easy-to-clean Omni rug is made from recycled plastic bottles and stands up to heavy use.
The kitchen is where all good parties end up, so make it cozy with a textured Brooklyn rug and invite friends to pull up a comfortable Remy stool with a curved back and floating seat. The spalted maple bowl on the sideboard makes an artful catch-all for kitchen essentials.
Cooper Studio swivel chairs pair well with the Vienna round cocktail table’s simple geometry and creamy marble top. With a decanter of wine ready to serve on the handsome walnut and painted-glass Dark Sky tray, there’s no better place to settle into a long conversation.
The Vienna chest has midcentury-modern flair and plenty of storage space for entertaining requisites, such as this shapely wine cooler made of Carrara marble. The intriguing artwork-a print by San Francisco–based artist Rob Delamater titled Modern Forms II-provides the perfect icebreaker.
Arranged beneath the retro-style Savoy chandelier, this alluring seating area comprises the low-slung Hunter lounge, Costello swivel chairs, and Addie coffee table, which features an inset top of black glass and a brushed metallic finish that accentuates its timeless form.
