Nothing could compare to this amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge, so, what better approach than to create a meditative atmosphere from which to enjoy it? The dining table base was created by Andrew Fisher of Fisher Weisman, and Suzanne Tucker designed the elliptical table top to follow the curvature of the windows. The low profile of the Maison Jansen campaign stools keeps a clear sightline to the view. The sculpture on the dining table is Small Nijinski on Anvil Point, 2001 by Barry Flanagan. A pair of antique Sukothai gilt bronze seated praying monks from the early 19th century bracket the transition from the sitting area to the dining area. In the sitting area, a highly-figured onyx-topped coffee table is styled with ammonite fossils, a marble orb, and a pair of vintage Mexican silver candlesticks. The side table is a Tibetan rain drum; the rug is 1940s Swedish half-pile. Photo by Matthew Millman.
