Designs of the Times: Innovative Creations

Category: Dining room

Big picture: Charged with creating a chic, timeless space that capitalizes on views of the Intracoastal Waterway, the Innovative team relied on its depth of design knowledge and international artisans to frame this dining room so exquisitely that it became a focal point of the residence.

The details: Polished, neutral-colored Botticino marble from Italy adds prestige to the room—as does the specialty wallpaper by Arte, an embossed motif over metal foil in light gold, champagne and cream colors. “We did not want to build walls around the dining room, yet we wanted to separate the area and make it unique,” says Katia Bates, president/creative director of the firm she launched with husband Tom in 1996. “So, we decided to [incorporate] custom-manufactured metal screens as partitions.” The screens are powdered coated in black, light gold, champagne and silver.

The transitional style and world-class craftsmanship inherent to the imported Italian dining room furnishings—high-gloss wood tabletop with inlays of light-gold decorations (the matching china credenza features a marble top)—deliver an architectural elegance to the space. Identical custom mirrors, also in high-gloss finish, serve as works of art. A clear glass crystal chandelier with gold accents completes the look.
