Pared-Down Dining Area

This dining table, by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, offers a modern take on antique style.

The chairs, all mid-century Danish Shaker designs by Folke Palsson and Jorgen Baekmark for FDB Mobler Denmark, were bought online for about $100 each. Cottage owners Juli Daoust and John Baker found the black candelabra while rummaging through the boathouse, while the snowshoes belonged to Juli's dad.
