Normally, when a home is purchased furniture is simply moved in, the house is renovated or the house is demolished and re-built. In this case, the scenario was none of the above. When the current owners, a banker and an antique book collector bought this land in Vilnius, Lithuania , all that existed was a little yellow brick cottage. They removed the yellow paint and were surprised to see the gorgeous, timeless Vilnius bricks. Not wanting to destroy the history of this one-time cannon foundry as well as needing much more space, they decided to restore the old structure and build a glass house around it to showcase the history. As you can see, situated behind the added staircase (above), the dining room is part of the new structure, but features a backdrop of the vintage brick with up-lighting. Large pendant lighting helps balance any space when you're dealing with a mix of large and small scales, like with this home. The dining area is small, but the overall structure is large. There's nothing more artistic than combining materials in a cohesive manner, and this is especially true in architecture. This is a great shot into the belly of the added staircase, showing all the elements of this structure. With such a beautiful backdrop, a wide range of modern furniture can be used to design spectacular interiors in this amazing home.
