English Antiques in the Dining Room “I took a thorough inventory of my clients’ existing furniture, and we sat together to determine which pieces they wanted to bring to their new home,” Griffin says. The beautiful English dining room antiques — the table, chairs, buffet and beloved clock — were a shoo-in. Griffin updated the space with a contemporary glass chandelier that doesn’t steal the spotlight away from the antiques, and by again painting the millwork and walls in the same color and sheen. The homeowners wanted visible window treatments only on the west-facing windows. The linen drapes soften the space and reduce early evening light without completely blacking it out. There are hidden roller blinds above the windows for additional light control.
