Warm Cabin Dining Area

Antiques dealer Youssef Hasbani has a flair for mixing styles and cultures in his lakeside retreat.

Youssef's cottage is like a lodge, filled with the beautiful objects he loves and collects. In his rustic dining nook, he showcases four vintage hurricane lamps above a rough, nature-inspired cedar pedestal table. Making use of every square inch of the space, he built an L-shaped banquette seat, covered in white terry cloth, which he also uses for storage.
