New England Fireplace

Here's a shot of the lovely fireplace niche in the kitchen of our recently completed New England project. The rocks for the fireplace facade were collected from the beach...just a stone's throw (sorry I couldn't help it!) away. I'm thrilled whenever we can use materials indigenous to a location in our designs, that's how they did it in the old days, out of practicality and thriftiness - but doing so can add a brilliant touch. I love how it not only makes a statement about a location, but how it integrates the organic nature of a place to the exterior and interior of a home. We thought the masculine low-slung line of the Warner Wing Chair & Ottoman by Hickory Chair struck the perfect comfortable chord - positioned perfectly to show off their great profile in this choice little footprint!
