Dining Room Set with Antique Bench and Chairs
Robbie Caponetto, Roger Foley

Distinctive Dining Room Set

Forget needing eight chairs to make a dining room set complete. In this New Orleans shotgun-style home, it’s the distressed details that make this room feel as if it’s evolved over time, thanks to an antique-style bench, framed black-and-white photos and a distinctive trestle table that’s a throwback to simpler times.
