A modern black dining table pairs with modern white dining chairs for an edgy, high-contrast look in this contemporary dining area. A gray rug softens the tile floor underfoot, and pendant lights add style and function overhead.
A large globe pendant hangs over the dining room table, a contemporary accent in a space otherwise brimming with craftsman character. Navy blue paint adorns the upper third of the room -- including the ceiling -- allowing the intricate woodwork to shine.
Gray concrete flooring provides a smooth connection for the rooms in this open floor plan. From the contemporary kitchen, a large opening leads to the dining space. A wood table with matching chairs, floral roman shades and blue walls decorate the room with a country style.
A transparent dining table and chairs allows the floral pendant light and sleek wood cabinetry to stand out in the space. A white pendant light with a black floral pattern hangs above the dining table for a whimsical touch to this streamlined kitchen.
Minimalism is key in this white dining space. A simple rug gives the dining area a sense of separation in the open-plan urban home. Contemporary art adds a few colorful top notes to warm the space and infuse it with life.
Designer Lisa Bakemis chose contemporary inset bookshelves to counterbalance the roundness of the cove ceilings and turret windows of this Victorian home. An updated midcentury modern table and chairs and eclectic accents also create an updated sophistication to the space.
Keeping personal connection in the design, the homeowner wanted to incorporate the dining table and chairs she had inherited from her grandmother. The chairs were recovered in a warm, visually-textured fabric selected to harmonize with the open-plan living-dining area. The set is supported with a custom-sized wool rug below and a “sculptural luminary” above.
Blurry gray and black walls move around a large, circular dining table. Red velvet, brown velvet and plaid chairs alternate around the table and the crystal chandelier hanging above. The bold red from the chairs is echoed in the window curtains and sconce lampshades. Black molding borders the room and creates a decorative look on the ceiling.
A contemporary living room with a beige sofa and unique wood chair is set up a few feet away from a round black dining room table, which is flanked by four black chairs that have been upholstered in white.
A chandelier encircled by a metallic drum shade provides a dramatic focal point in this contemporary California dining room. A sinuous wood dining table has a shiny metal base, marrying rustic and modern elements. Inset marble takes the place of a rug, and a series of architectural photographs propped on the zebrano built-in cabinets give the room added depth and dimension.
This open-concept living, dining and kitchen space has a luxe, layered aesthetic that's at once cool and welcoming. A glittering traditional chandelier hangs above a Mid-Century Modern dining room set, a juxtaposition that works.
This formal dining room also flexes as a den and home office space since the kitchen has enough space for casual dining. Blue-gray walls are paired with white wainscoting and tile floors to set the scene for a long, wooden table surrounded by curved white chairs.
Dramatic art and lighting steals the show in this clean, contemporary dining room. Windows on all sides of the space bring in loads of natural light and offer great views of the backyard. A dark wood dining table with a clean metal base is set off by four plush, yet spare chairs with midcentury styling.
