Bright White Contemporary Dining Room with Cozy Window Seat
Built-in bookshelves create a colorful display of books along the wall in this bright, white contemporary dining room. A white window seat creates the perfect, sunny spot to cozy up with a book or enjoy a cup of coffee.
Window Nook With Black Accordion Curtains, Fur-Draped Chair and Globe Pendant Over White Table
Black accordion curtains blend with the black wall paint in this stylish window nook. The sleek white table grabs attention against the black walls and black wood flooring. A faux fur chair cover and a knitted floor cushion add lovely texture to the design. A globe pendant light hangs over the table decorated with fuchsia flowers and red books for added color.
In this smaller New York City home, space was at a premium and the dining area was very close to the entryway. The table and pendant help define it and keep it separate but harmonious as people come into the house. The dining table was customized by adding copper table legs to a wood tabletop. The designers picked up the copper accents in the lighting and place settings.
The use of pairs creates symmetry and order in this urban apartment. Chests add much-needed storage, mirrors pull light into the space and upholstered stools add pull-up seating to the living and dining areas. The framed art above the banquette — a photo of a floral arrangement from the homeowners' wedding — adds a personalized touch to the space.
Custom blown glass pendants balance the raw character of the live-edge dining table. Two-toned teal dining chars add a splash of color to the otherwise neutral dining room. White wainscoting echoes the geometric pattern of the second-floor railing.
The formal dining room also includes a built-in bar, complete with exposed brick for added texture. A black-and-white painting of the couple's child is showcased above and complements the geometric wall treatment.
This exquisite dining room's jet-black walls play off the white ceiling and colorful striped area rug. The Chanel artwork adds a sense of supreme sophistication, while the antler chandelier brings texture and a rustic element to the space.
Dining Room With Large Windows, Row of Bookshelves & Wood Table
A place both to study and gather, this dining area/library is simple, functional and beautiful. Favorite books line one wall, while a view of the shore shines through the windows on the other. The simple table is made from a single piece of wood custom-made for the space.
A stunning, custom wood table is the focal point in this crisp white, contemporary dining room. Floor to ceiling windows allow gorgeous natural light to fill the space while a metal and rope chandelier adds some rustic flair.
