A roaring fire adds warmth to this country dining room, and the play of light highlights multiple, stacked rows of the Tabac border, a pattern of antique earthenware jugs.

Tabac is from the Raymond Waites Vintage collection, and Vintage Marble and Village Plaid are from the Raymond Waites New Vintage Home collection, both by Village.
