Rustic meets modern in this contemporary dining table, where a wood-grain slab is topped with glass and paired with sleek metal legs. Arm-less white chairs have chrome legs that mimic the table's, while a one-of-a-kind pendant light chandelier makes a dramatic design statement.
Though the open, two-story dining room in HGTV Dream Home 2015 is breathtaking, that openness can sometimes negatively affect the room’s acoustics. Luckily, interior designer Linda Woodrum knew just how to alleviate that issue. “When you have a tremendous amount of volume, you’re looking for ways to help with acoustics,” explains Linda. “So the more fabric you get in the room, the more you help with acoustics.”
Just off the living room, a farmhouse-style industrial dining table paired with aluminum chairs create a chic and rustic space. A matching console table with an assortment of accessories ties the look together.
Design Harmony Weihs maximized seating, space and storage by building this custom bench with drawers and pulling everything closer to the windows. The space feels relaxed and casual thanks to Roman shades and cheery throw pillows.
The dining room seating in HGTV Dream home 2015 was given a mix-and-match approach in order to keep the space from feeling too stiff. “When you’re playing with a dining table that has six or eight chairs, that’s a lot of legs and a lot of wood,” explains the home’s interior designer Linda Woodrum. “We were trying to find a way to soften all of that wood, so we have this upholstered piece that’s one part of the seating area, two wooden chairs across from it, and two upholstered chairs at the end.”
The focal point of this space is the chandelier which hangs over the reclaimed dining table, offering a nod to a modern vintage aesthetic. All-weather wicker dining chairs add texture against the wood table and provide a finish that easily cleanable and durable for this family.
A built-in banquette with easy-to-clean striped fabric is the perfect kid-friendly choice for a cozy breakfast area. Drawers underneath provide extra storage, and a beaded chandelier makes for a striking focal point.
In order to create a loft-like space with a very open, airy feel, the dining area has an open plan adjacent to the living room. The joined spaces make it easy to gather, dine and entertain family and friends.
A simple, sleek wood dining table pairs with clean-lined dining chairs for a fresh, crisp look in this white dining room. Natural light from windows on the second floor shines down through a ceiling cutout to make the modern space feel ultra bright.
