One of the first things I chose were this this black mirror and console table for the niche.
The console is a mirrored eglomise piece. It is pretty in real life, but hard to photograph due to its reflective qualities.
Here is the top of the table(with reflection of the wall mirror).
Great lines on the legs and base…
... claw feet.
I had a difficult time finding a dining set I liked. I purchased this set as a "pressure" buy... we were having a dinner party and I didn't have a table. I liked it for all of two weeks. The only good thing is that I got it at 40 % off.
Next I chose an area rug...
I purchased thsi pair of lamps for another room but decided to place them in the dining room on the console table.
Here they are on the the console table.
My most recent purchase, posted about here, is this pair of leather and animal hide end chairs.
The animal hide on the backs are shaved in areas that create patterns.
The seat and chair back have croc emobossed leather, which you can see on this close-up.
Here are the chairs at the dining table. Since the patterns on the back of the chairs aren't identical, I placed the chairs at the ends of the table, then switched them to see which one had the pattern I wanted to face out to the main floor.
.... Pattern Two.
I think I like this one the best. I placed the upholstered arm chairs in the middle position on each side. I like the fact that the set doesn't seem matchy-matchy now.
