A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
The brass bowl is a CB2 find, and you can get a similar look with this piece. Placing greenery in a bowl is a bit unexpected, and it keeps the centerpiece low and striking. You can even line the middle of your table with a trio of greenery-filled brass bowls.The linen napkins were a bargain buy at an outlet, but this season there are plenty of options to choose from. This World Market selection caught our eye, as did these gorgeous napkins from Etsy. The Emory Gold Flatware is from Crate & Barrel.
Last but not least, when your black and white tabletop is accented with fruit, there’s an undeniable tropical feel. Plus, fruit makes the perfect outdoor centerpiece, as shown on CB2’s Escale Cooler Cart: Today’s final featured tabletop trend is the beauty of blue and white. It’s crisp, it’s summery, and it makes a refreshing statement. Crate & Barrel is packing their spring offerings with blue and white dinnerware for both indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Gone are the days when the wooden dining table was relegated just to the classic, rustic or farmhouse style dining room. Today’s creative designs allow you to add the wooden dining table to even the most contemporary dining rooms with ease. Try out the fabulous wooden table in the tropical dining room to give it a more organic touch or usher it into the industrial dining space to counter the already existing heavy metallic influences. An ultra-sleek table with clean, modern design looks great in almost any contemporary dining space and its presence definitely adds contrast to the sophisticated open plan living.
How we style a dining room is one of those decisions that not only affects our home interior, but also our quality of life. A dining room must be beautiful to look at, sure, but it must also be convenient to dine in. The most important piece of the dining room is, understandably, a dining table. There’s more to decorating a dining room than just picking out a table and setting it in the center of the room. Additions like a stylish rug can make a big difference to the overall ambiance.
