The home was originally a John Calvin Stevens carriage house. What is now the dining room was once a stall for horse drawn carriages. The table, chairs, and glass-front black walnut hutch were all built by the late furniture maker David Margonelli. To downplay some
of the formality of the room, interior designer Brett Johnson and his Portland-based Maine Street Mercantile and Manufacturing Company reupholstered end chairs
with Romo fabric and designed and built the custom buffet to the left.
