The dining room in this craftsman-style Scarsdale residence lacked a focal point and the client wanted something modern and eye-catching for the space. “We added eggplant-colored wallpaper by Romo and vibrant original art by Allan Forsyth to the wall niche at the back of the room to draw the eye in,” Paquin says. A floating credenza from ALF via Canal Furniture provides function and storage for the space; the chandelier is from Flos, the table by Poltrona Frau, and chairs by Desiron. Yet again, all our judges concurred. “This is an exciting contemporary dining room, enhanced by the interesting ceiling details,” notes Victoria Whitlock.
