coffee tables like that are a pain imo. take up valuable space rarely used & always getting in the way.i've got a few LTR's dotted around that can be grouped together as and when needed.in saying that, not normally my thing but i do like girard & his designs , just had some cushions made in one of his maharam fabrics & would love one of his enviroment enrichment panels though they're a bit '70s

thanks to 01huba for the Kvadrat Hallingdal fabric for the sofa too Ubercool

Seenmy - like the kitchen a lot. What is the wood?

Might try and post a photo of mine. Don't post much on here but do like the interior thread.

Kitchen, dining area and part of open plan living room. The kitchen is below a mezzanine. After a new corner sofa to replace that one.

Cheers, guys.

It is just a local carpenter who we have used for the past few years. He is technically very good but the design was done by the missus. He needed a lot of hand holding but worth it in the end.

The oak looks great. Ours is all ash (the doors are stained black). It is quite light in colour close up.

good work wolfie - like the tiles and the design looks fairly reasonably achievable

The tiles are actually the original glazed bricks that we stripped back. The building is a converted Edwardian school. Those bricks are in every room up to about six feet.

never liked big white kitchens like whats in fashion now, and always liked the mission brown claustrophobic kitchens I grew up with in the 80s. they had a warm feeling about them, good to see some people moving back to that kind of feeling.

Russ: IMO I don't find it that good for lounging around on. It is better for sitting on if that makes sense. It does look good though.
