"No Ordinary Family"
The Powell family dining room floats in the open plan and reflects the current craze for mix-and-match seats. The children sit on an armless banquette, $750, from Rapport International. Their mother (Julie Benz) sits in an X-back bistro chair, and their father ( Michael Chiklis) occupies an upholstered chair with nailhead trim, one of a pair that sit at the ends of the table. "There were a few raised eyebrows about having a sofa at the dining table," production designer Maria Caso says, "but it's a great way to keep the kids at the table, and I think that might catch on."
