Host Joan Steffend and designer Joe Segovia transform a bland dining room into a dramatic, vintage modern space.
Before: Dinner Party Flop
Kate Shaw dreams of someday owning her own restaurant — but, in the meantime, she would happily settle for a new dining room. This chef loves to entertain, but the dining room in her 1897 condo isn’t set up for elegant dinner parties. The table is wobbly and only seats four. There is no place to put serving dishes and the décor is rather bland. Shaw would love to have a sophisticated yet practical dining room where she can show off her culinary creations in style.
