Mid-Century Modern Dining Room With Floating Buffet
A minimalist home is both stylish and warm. Mid-century modern dining table is paired with sleek Eames tripod chairs, while a floating blue buffet provides much-needed storage yet maintains the open atmosphere of the home.
Overlooking the kitchen, this formal dining area offers seating for ten and features elegant traditional furnishings, including a candelabra chandelier, dark wood hutch and a polished wood table. A vase of bright orange, yellow and pink flowers centers the table to add a pop of color to the sophisticated design.
Industrial-Style Console Table With Matching Cog-Wheel Lamps
Don’t be afraid of placing furniture in front of window. If it’s not a bulky piece, and has an open bottom like this wheeled side table, it’ll work because natural light will still be able to flow into the room. The open cog-wheel on set of lamps also allow daylight to shine through. The beefy wood-plank dining table and bench work perfectly with the industrial side table and sisal rug.
In a smaller room, choosing a few pieces of furniture and one or two items for visual interest can help keep the space from feeling cluttered. Here, the simple but stylish banquette, table and chairs let the gorgeous ocean view take center stage.
Boston-area designer Heidi Pribell created this gilded masterpiece for a client who was renovating his historic Beacon Hill home. Pribell combines the ornate Louis XIV style with a still-bright (but less baroque dining) area, giving the room a full shimmery feel without assaulting the occupants with details at every turn.
Rustic Dining Room Features Floor-to-Ceiling Exposed Wood
From floor to ceiling, the entire dining room features rustic, exposed grain wood.

The comfortable dining room is made of a wood slab table, gray bench seats and slipcovered armchairs.
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.

A square, wooden dining table offers a nice view while comfortably seating eight guests. The apartment's floor plan influenced the design of the dining space as an intimate space within the open layout.
