The modern dining room is where the universal ritual of breaking bread brings us together. The projects below showcase elegant configurations and designs that encompass chairs and tables, bars and stools, lighting, flooring, and fireplaces.

Dining Room
The interior of developer Chris Sally's unit was also designed by El Dorado. The table is a hand-me-down from Sally’s parents, but the Marre Moerel light fixture is not. Sally’s fiancée, Julie Gibson, had doubts about the trademark Eldo Green they decided to paint the unit’s ceiling.
The inverted trusses subtly establish distinct spaces in the great room, with the bottom edges lending an intimate feel to the living area. A simple rice-paper lamp shade hangs above a kauri wood tabletop that the couple borrowed from Stock’s aunt and uncle and set on a set of Taurus legs from Nils Holger Moormann. A Brit Longue chair by Sintesi isat right.
The 1920s Catalan chandelier and dining room table were both bought second-hand from a shop in Barcelona, where the family used to live. The table is the perfect place for the children to draw and play, “because it’s so old it doesn’t matter if it gets scratched,” says Bergendy. “It’s technically a dining room with old-style wood panels, but the treatment is new — it’s not cutting edge, but the way the materials have been treated is different.”
Large, communal tables, sound absorbing ceiling tiles, and street-side seating impart a cozy feel.
Kitchen & Dining
Custom cabinetry lines the dining area, which is defined by a large wood dining table and colorful glass pendant lighting.
The kitchen countertop is polished concrete. The cupboards are clad in Marine plywood with an olive ash veneer.
Hans J. Wegner Wishbone Chairs surround the large dining table on axis with the grand, exterior windows.
Inside, white paint lightens up the middle of the building. A vintage Danish dining set and Cloud pendants by Frank Gehry for Vitra define the dining area.

Did we mention that Bence loves to cook? Luckily, a fully equipped kitchen found a snug space under the bedroom loft
Sheetrock surfaces comprise many of the interior walls, including one situated between the kitchen and dining area, which is furnished by benches and a table designed and built by Baumann, alongside HAL chairs by Jasper Morrison for Vitra.
A sober material palette, including polished concrete radiant floors and black ceramic tiles, defines the interiors. The cedar ceilings extend outdoors for continuity.
The couple hand-selected every piece of furniture in the house and perused Craigslist to find the four Verner Panton stacking chairs surrounding a Pure dining table from CB2. The two tubular steel side chairs are from Danish Modern L.A., and the pair purchased Muuto’s Plugged Pendant lamp from A+R. Mays and Campbell received the Molecule Building Set as a gift; it’s available from Ferm Living.
Featuring reclaimed wood from the original house, a single sliding door covers only half of the kitchen pantry. As the door slides, china and glassware are revealed on one side; the other side holds Anne’s design library and favored heirlooms. The sliding door follows a track installed in the concrete underfloor; the shelves are supported by recessed steel brackets, strong enough to hold the weight of a man—or a baby. An additional full-size pantry is located inside the laundry room, toward the original bungalow.
The concrete wall mimics the slope of the hill outside as a reference to early Maori structures that were dug into the land. The simple kitchen has strandboard cabinetry and an MDF island that conceals a fireplace at one end. The ceramic works on the built-in seat at right are by Raewyn Atkinson and Robyn Lewis.
Dining Room
This former garage is now converted into a large open space. The dining room opens onto the residence garden and an office space overlooks the living room.
A custom table designed by Jones features a pull-out bench on one side and 1C dining chairs by Room B on the other; the Globo pendant is by Viso.
