When this Fed­er­a­tion home in Syd­ney’s north was gut­ted to make it larger and more fam­ily-friendly, the own­ers took the op­por­tu­nity to add a bold new din­ing area with a ban­quette. “It’s very much the heart of the home,” says in­te­rior de­signer Alexan­dra Kidd, who col­lab­o­rated on this project with col­league Jes­sica Sor­lin. “There’s hid­den stor­age un­der­neath the ban­quette and its curved form re­ally em­braces the oc­cu­pants,” Alexan­dra adds. A metal­lic trim and kick­board add a touch of pol­ish, per­fectly com­ple­ment­ing the vin­tage bam­boo chairs the own­ers are mad about. And the del­i­cate, sculp­tural pen­dant light is by no means just a source of il­lu­mi­na­tion – it’s more like the room’s crown­ing glory.
