The Samaras/Sorensen Residence Dining Room (it is called the Stannage Avenue Residence on our Houzz page) has been featured on Houzz, in an article called "Extendable Tables Solve Dining Dilemmas". The extendable table wasn't designed by us, but the article points out that the corner dining bench (our custom design) saves space while allowing a comfortable area to gather. This bench design was our solution to provide efficient seating, open up the house layout, and maximize storage all at the same time. The bench extends through the Living Room, where it becomes more seating and a media cabinet.
Entertaining solutions, just in time for Thanksgiving - I hope you get cozy and enjoy the Holidays!
