Dining Areas: Glimpse from Above

This spiraling dining room sits majestically in the corner of a mountaintop home. Twenty-foot Jeld-Wen windows, provided by Mountain Lakes Millwork, serve to take full advantage of the spectacular vistas. The simplicity of materials used and minimal furnishings allow the views to be the focus of attention. The beamed old growth heart pine ceiling, two-story windows and white oak flooring envelope the room in warmth and comfortable elegance. A round iron chandelier hangs from the ceiling, accentuating the height of the space. Underneath the table is a rare, whimsical, handmade Persian rug that is a “demonstrator” – a patchwork of every type of rug. With its juxtaposition of motifs and colors, it became the starting point for the décor of the room. Oak Chippendale chairs surround the table.

Jay Caughman designed the home with almost no direction from the homeowners – it eschews strict architectural style in favor of an elegant, relaxed simplicity. The walls are made “stiff” and durable by reinforced steel through the exterior walls.
