In 2015, VT is pleased to announce our entry into home. Our motto has always been image, identity, clarity, and defining your style type gives you a place to begin. Once you have reached that clarity, it is a natural evolution to translate that into your environment as an expression of your authentic self.
Designing your home based on your style type (or at least infusing the elements) allows you to create the perfect space that represents the best version of you. Join us each week as we share our point of view on the incredible world of interior design, applying our principles and philosophies to everything from art and architecture to current trends and designers.
Combining timeless modern pieces such as the chairs and floorlamp in this classic ‘white’ room features the pieces and sets a fresh, zen tone.
This pair of faux tree trunks as a table base is quite unexpected but works beautifully with the sculptural lamps and floral wallpaper.
Whether you have a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen or simply a dining area in a modest apartment, it’s where you will be entertaining friends, hosting holidays with family and is, of course, an opportunity to make a dramatic statement. Here are some of our favorite dining rooms that will get you in the mood for sharing a great meal.
I have been obsessed with this classic wallpaper that Gambrel used in this fabulous Old Westbury home. If you look back to our story on Kips Bay Designer Showhouse you will see another version that I would consider using in a contemporary home.
If you are into clean and understated, this warm wooden table with three black pendent lights are perfect in the calm, tonal setting.
This dining room is clean and sophisticated with muted honey colored chairs tying in the classic Venetian chandelier, brass trimmed table and contemporary parchment mirror above the mantle.
The wallpaper is the perfect finishing touch to this dining room tying in the pendent lighting in black and brass. This works well in a dining area of a modest apartment.
This long, low dining table and chairs perfectly compliment the mid-century clean lines of this dining room.
This dining room is warm, luxurious and inviting with the leather Poltrona Frau chairs, Van Rossum sideboard with brass detail and the dramatic Italian Chandelier.
A gold leafed dropped trey ceiling detail is very dramatic in this room with black floors and walls.
The modern classic Cherner chair is an all-time understated favorite. The organic form works perfectly with the dramatic chandelier.
The cage chandelier with gold artwork is very dramatic as they reflect the top of a sleek, black table.
If you have the space, a large square table is a great contemporary choice. I like this table in particular because the seating promotes the flow of conversation nicely with four generous corners and two or three people per side
This white table is a favorite – so clean and sculptural. The wood panel detail is both functional and unpretentious with the chic Carrara marble shelves and a dark chevron floor.
