What inspired you?
…We love the warmth of midcentury furniture but wanted to combine it with something more sculptural. We did this project over the course of a couple of years using our own skills and the skills of some hired day laborers.
Black floor stain… I use MinWax Black wallnut covered with 2 coats of matte polyurethane. It makes the cheapest common oak flooring look totally sexy, plus if you have a low ceiling like we did it makes the floor appear to drop away and gives the illusion of height.
