Get the Look: Zen Dining Nook

Designer Allison Holden-Pope creates an oasis in a busy home with a canopy-covered dining space.

The Look: Zen Dining Nook

A Japanese-inspired wood screen custom-built by Vertical Grain provides structural support for a salvaged-lumber floating staircase, but it also acts as a grounding element for the main floor of this renovated Vancouver Special: Douglas fir beams reach up the wall and form a canopy above the table, creating a cozy space (with a matching built-in bench) for the family to gather come dinnertime. See the rest of this spectacular Allison Holden-Pope–designed home, part of the Vancouver Special House Tour hosted by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation.
