A Bellevue living room designed by Seattle-based Garret Cord Werner was chosen as one of the world's top 10 living rooms in a competition put on by architecturaldigest.com.

Olson Kundig Architects of Seattle designed the 7,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house for a site that overlooks Lake Washington. Garret Cord Werner did the interiors.

The interior designer said the room displays the homeowners' extensive art collection.

A 35-foot dining table cantilevered on two pedestals is in a center pavilion of the living room beneath an exposed beam roof. The table was designed by Garret Cord Werner and is made of mahogany and nickel-plated steel. It is modular so the homeowners can use the pavilion as a flexible space for entertaining.

Two living areas flank the dining area, creating intimate gathering places with custom carpets and furniture designed by Garret Cord Werner.

The firm said the furniture and textiles were inspired by the surroundings, creating “an elegant dialogue between architecture, landscape and interiors.”
