The Dining Room
The floor plan of the home is open and airy, with no walls between the dining room, kitchen and living room and ceilings that soar to the third level. The floor plan helps to heat and cool the home efficiently and gives the illusion of more space, Rashfrod says.
The dining room table is made out of steel, which Rashford says is one of the most recyclable materials on the planet. Chicago artist Ted Harris was so inspired by the table, Rashford says he created custom chandeliers made from recycled motorcycle parts to hang in the dining room. The chairs around the table are garden chairs from a resale shop that were painted black. The seats were reupholstered with material that looks like leather but is actually made from recycled soda bottles.
