A Vintage Dining Room in Falmouth, England

“It’s far more satisfying to give new life to an old object than to just pick something from a catalog,” says Kathryn Tyler, an interior designer based in the UK. For over a decade, Tyler has been scouring and collecting vintage finds from local thrift stores and websites. The dining room in Tyler's home in Falmouth, England, plucked from our Interior Design issue, is a shining example that holds the designer's bric-à-brac—a trio of black bowls and a $30 three-pieced wooden table surrounded by a set of 1950s Carl Jacobs Jason chairs Tyler snagged on eBay for $400. A graphic Ellsworth Kelly poster mounted on the painted white brick wall ($3!), brings a little color into the otherwise neutral room.

Wood House Dining Room

In the Auckland, New Zealand, house architect Michal O'Sullivan designed for a family of four, natural materials and neutral tones come together to create an inviting interior. The wood ceiling is inspired by a traditional Maori cloak and is meant to be a metaphor for keeping the family warm and protected. A floor made from terra-cotta tiles mirrors the pattern above. An onyx island adds a white contrast to the golden interior. O'Sullivan designed the dining table and the occasional table is by B&B Italia. The side chairs are replica Jean Prouve design, the vase is by Kamaka Pottery, and the wine rack in the built-in shelf is similar to one by Winehive. See more of the modern wood home here.

Modern Undercover

Just three weeks before their wedding, Jason Greenman and Jeanne Williams purchased their home in September of 2000. Having set their hopes on a mid-century modern home nestled in the Hollywood Hills, they decided to take a gander around Hancock Park at the suggestion of their real estate agent. Stumbling upon an open house, they popped in—and despite the home’s fixer-upper status—were sold.

ABCs of Bathroom Design with the Brothers Sieger

At Duravit's biennial conference Duravit Design Days, we had the opportunity to chat with two of Germany's hardest-working design firms, Sieger Design. The principals and brothers Michael and Christian Sieger, took over the family business from their father, a self-employed architect who first started designing for yachts and motorboats. In the 1980s Sieger Design began working first with Dornbracht, then with Duravit, giving them a virtual monopoly on German bathroom product design. The brothers are nattily dressed, and their exuberant design is evidenced by their studio's headquarters: a castle with a moat. (Sadly, we did not get to visit.)
