DP Customer Profile: Gerrit and His Inhabit Wall Flats Dining Room


Posted by Ali | View all posts by Ali

Gotta give Gerrit a big high five for his installation of the Inhabit Seesaw Wall Flats in his minimalist dining room. Can you imagine the room without the texture of the wall flats? I certainly can’t. No doubt, minimalism is so much better with a little bit of character. Good show, Gerrit!

This is what I’d like to call an “interactive DP Customer Profile.” Jennifer from New York City has graciously shared several pictures with us of her apartment. The task, should you choose to play along, is to find the following list of DP products within her photos below: an OFFI Tiki Stool, a twenty2 Gala Wallband, a CAKE Warp Bowl, a DwellStudio Motif Robin Pillow, an OFFI Duoplane DVD Shelf, and the Twinkle Living Milan Rug. Best of luck with the hunt!

Ever drool over the thought of a new rug with a striking design but you are not sure how the pattern may work in your space? Meet Christina & Alex. Their Vail mountain home is a fantastic source of inspiration, showcasing the Thomas Paul Feathers rug in plum and cream. Notice how the Thomas Paul Swallows and Buds accent pillows in plum on their couch perfectly tie the rug in to the room. Enjoy!
