Sometimes you uncover amazing materials in a home restoration… materials that demand to not only be lovingly restored, but honored with new design elements that tie the new and the old into a cohesive whole. That’s what happened when we discovered gorgeous mahogany trims throughout this mid-century modern beauty (that had suffered through some terrible ’70s updates).
We restored the mahogany details and in the end they inspired a solution to a tricky design problem: How to maximize the visible light and extraordinary views of the great room and kitchen while still providing a focal point that created natural transition between one living space and the next. Our solution? create a brand-new cantilevered mahogany counter that is simultaneously richly luxurious, solid and built to last, but with a profile that feels lighter than air.
You are cordially invited to tour this mid-century beauty this March- it will be featured on the Tour of Remodeled Homes, March 9th and 10th, 2013. We look forward to having you join us!
