A Grand Production, Fall 2009

The main event is the amazing 1,904-square-foot living space (with 17-foot-high ceilings) just beyond the vestibule. A 27-foot-long curved plaster wall draws the eye from the entrance into this grand space, which comfortably accommodates a dining room for 10, an Arclinea kitchen with a 20-foot-long island, and an earth-toned living room. Interior designer Meichi Peng chose appropriately scaled pieces such as low-lying linen Flexform sofas and Poliform tables, which worked well with the Grads' Modenature chairs. Peng also custom designed the living and dining room tables and an oak staple bench near the entry, all of which the home-owner says transforms the daunting space into a comfortable family home.
