The dining area is set apart by a wood column and low divider, which leaves room for a round table with eight chairs. Round tables are so much more civilized than rectangular ones, because everyone can talk to each other, and this use of space was a judicious one. Opposite the table is a built-in wet bar with a granite counter, and another buffet is to port. The forward bulkhead, in white, of course, has recesses for paintings. And if you thought that the painted finishes might hide Cheoy Lee craftsmanship, you're wrong: The raised panel designs show the builder's talent clearly and the book-matched woods in the lower cabinets are simply flawless.
