I love it when an email is waiting for me from architect Scott Weston. It always means loads of photos of Scott’s latest projects and this email was overflowing with colourful, clever and downright gorgeous rooms. Per usual Scott has outlined the pieces and process he has used to come up with these stunning spaces. Take it away Scott….
“I thought you might like to see the finished images of this glamour dining table. The bespoke table overall size being 1.1 x 4. 2metres and had to seat 16 people comfortably. A table that was solid hardwood with turned timber legs and frame finished with a 50mm resin tabletop in high gloss in matching tomato red. The table was hand rolled/painted to give it a softer texture whilst contrasting with the modern resin material. As the table was the main player in the room everything else went out a bone white in walls and joinery. 14 Kartell Mademoiselle chairs upholstered in Missoni fabric enrich the table surroundings whilst the Showtime host chairs are just pure drama! The linear credenza that sits under the window is lined in black felt and has a very elegant feel when opened to display silver cutlery and Murano glass ware. I was extremely chuffed when the Client hosted a lunch and I was seated at the head of the table-a very rewarding experience indeed.
Three cascading Moooi pendants and plaster wall up-lights create flattering lighting to the space.”
I’m so blown away with the dimensions. That is some table and imagine having the space to indulge in such a fantasy turned reality. Scott also included photos of another piece he designed for his client.
“The tansu cabinet to the entry foyer draws reference to a typical Japanese tansu cabinet and was manufactured in separate boxes so the whole cabinet can be easily dismantled.We played on the walnut timber veneer external carcass but every drawer or hinged door when opened reveals a high gloss lacquered internal carcass. The entire drawers are made in the high gloss lacquer finish and gently soft-close when not in use.”
And in a lame attempt to sound like a steak knife salesman in a television commercial… wait there’s more! But that will be later today when Scott shares clever beautiful bathrooms and his all white kitchen.
I think I’m going to pass out. That table is FABULOUS!!! I need a new dining table desperately and that (on a much smaller scale) would be perfect. And those Mademoiselle chairs have been a favourite of mine for a long time. Oh, I love the tansu cabinet too. 🙂
That fabric on the chairs (at the table) is great. More color than I usually prefer- but I love it!
All the images are great. I love the under stair storage. Its such a practical idea.
I’m swooning over those dining room chairs – like falling down swooning. So dramatic and gorgeous, yet totally welcoming and fun!
Oh my god, that dining room!!! Wow…
Oh I love that red table, and those chairs, drool… Love the storage too.
