Peaceful dining room with rustic furniture and industrial lights

A simple dining room in a 19th-century Italian Victorian home in Hudson, New York won this year’s Considered Design Award in the Living/Dining category. Owner Brigitte Gfeller washed the walls light gray, creating a neutral backdrop for a no-frills tableau of farmhouse furniture and Workstead industrial lamps. An industrial chandelier is an unexpected item in contrast to a farmhouse dining table and chairs. Above the mantelpiece are three planks of reclaimed wood sewn together as art, giving the space a cozy vibe even though there’s no fireplace. The dishes are also a masterpiece – these are pieces in beautiful antique French style, and the candle holders are also vintage but Scandinavian. Learn more about this gorgeous space below!
