The interior design of the dining room needed to provide great flexibility, accommodating weekly dinner parties for ten to sixteen guests as well as frequent much larger parties. The table can comfortably seat sixteen people when its leaves are in, but easily contracts to a mere 4' square and rolls out of the way when multiple tables with ballroom chairs are used for large parties. A heavy brass hook makes it easy to raise the chandelier close to the ceiling when the dining room is rearranged so that there is no table directly beneath the chandelier. 

The simple single valance over the three windows in the alcove provides a clean, uncluttered look.
