Inside this old New Orleans home, five transoms made this dining room’s arched wood bay windows uniquely beautiful.

The window structure — seen here in the late 1960s — was made of solid red cypress, 3-1/2 inches thick, with beveled glass. Surrounding them were pecan wood panels, and the oak flooring was oil-mopped.

Above the table, a lamp from the Victorian era had been converted to modern use. Dangling crystal prisms from the fixture reflected rainbows of light, while the flowers on the glass glowed with color at night.

Antiquing brought out the elaborate carving on the massive table base. If the top of the original table had been too large for its new location, or had been hopelessly damaged, the antiqued base could have been fitted with a new or refinished wood top.

The four matching chairs, also antiques, had cushions covered with fabric that was the same color as the table base, and were edged with a thick white fringe.
