It’s where the best dinner conversations happen. It’s where everyone comes together for holidays and parties. It’s where every host with the most truly shines. Yep, you guessed it–we’re talking about the dining room! In this edition of Embrace the Space, we’ll help create the perfect mood to make your dining room the go-to destination for gatherings with family and friends.
First things first: the dining table! The most important piece in this space, the dining table serves as the anchor for everything around it. A classic style is always the way to go because it can be dressed up or down easily to accommodate the mood. We love how the Eloquence Thoreau dining table‘s classic shape is elevated with vintage European detailing, yet feels approachable with a subtly distressed Danish white finish.
Now that you’ve carefully chosen the anchor of your space, it’s time to set the table with gorgeous seating and lighting. These elements can add so much character to a dining room, so go big! A classic table can be paired with bold, mod lighting, like the Currey & Company Hove Chandelier–its sweeping wrought iron arms bring a cool, industrial vibe that enriches the wood of a dining table. For seating, we love going with pieces like the Alistair Selene Dark Moon dining chair–it has a unique, curvy shape that’s all its own and treats guests to cool, sumptuous color and texture.
You’re almost done–all you need to complete your space are the last few decorative details! A fresh rug can always bring that last bit of oomph to a dining room. We love patterned rugs like the Surya Contempo rug that shows an eclectic mix of prints in simple, neutral tones. Add a couple of extra pieces to hang on the wall or set on the table–like the Arteriors Olympia Oval Mirror and a table piece like the Bliss Studio Boulangerie Etagere–and you’re done!
