The goal was to maximize the use of space in the apartment, and not an inch is wasted.

A Jewel of a Dining Room

Million Dollar Contractor, Stephen Fanuka was brought in to restore this apartment to its prewar glory, and the crown jewel was to be an oak-paneled dining room. The Fanuka team selected individual quarter-sawn oak panels for the highly-figured grain pattern she desired. They also had custom solid wood moldings cut to replicate prewar details and even wood species. Even the staining of the wood was laborious, but in the end well worth it for the room is warm and honey-toned. Finally added was a vintage fireplace from an architectural salvage company.
