Neutral is far from boring in this formal dining room design by William C Johnson. Beautiful dark hardwood complements the traditional buffet. Additional traditional elements include the crystal chandelier and dramatic curtains. Neutral, upholstered dining chairs and a large piece of art on the wall bring contemporary flair to the room.
The formal dining area has seating for six and is comfortably settled between the living area and kitchen, making the space open to both. Light, airy curtains are hung on the windows in this area to help create a definition between this space and the other two, even though they are physically connected.
A modern chandelier adds some panache and funk to this traditional dining room. Hardwood floors create a formal feel, while upholstered chairs and softly-pattered window treatments give the space a real warmth. Artistic elements give the room a sense of personality and home.
This small dining area was centered around showing off the beautiful crystal and china collection. The glass table and china cabinet make the space feel elegant and the metallic backing of the chairs gives the room some extra sparkle.
For more special occasions like holidays and dinner parties, the owners can make use of this stylish and sophisticated dining room. Here, a long table comfortably seats twelve, while a cabinet and buffet make room for plates.
At first glance, the formal dining room almost seems to drip gold, what with a chandelier descending from the yellowed ceiling. Directly below, a round table with ten chairs invites guests to stop and stare.
A formal dining room in gray is highlighted by soft gold accents and an eclectic blue-and-gold sideboard. A mix of patterns from the polka dot curtains to the dining chairs with a leaf motif add visual interest to the space.
Because the living space flows right into the dining room, the designers used two large rugs to visually delineate the two zones. With a wood table layered on top and six chairs all around, this space is ready for formal occasions.
