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.
