To help the dining room maintain its airy feeling despite its small space, designers used a glass top table with a sculptural wood base. The finish on the dining chair legs are painted so that they coordinated with the chandelier, while the upholstery adds the texture and black and gray contrast that is carried throughout these two spaces.
In the dining area, designers brought in a rustic farm table that warms the space with its beautiful wood grain. On either end of this table, gray and white upholstered head chairs contribute comfort and texture to the design, while a brass light fixture brings the modern element the homeowners love.
This stylish dining room and adjacent kitchen are the end result of a custom contemporary renovation of the home, a 1970s bungalow. Handcrafted Middle Eastern pendant lights hang over the dining table, while artifacts from the region grace the table.
With a crisp white kitchen serving as a backdrop, this dining room punches with color thanks end chairs upholstered in Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon fabric and lime green panels and side chairs covered in blue leather. The green in the end chairs is echoed in the drawers of the chest, which serves as a sideboard.
Darker cabinetry is striking against the pale wood floors in this contemporary kitchen and dining space. A papered accent wall draws the eye to the dining table, which offers a variety of seating options. The long kitchen island adds space for more guests to perch for dining or chatting with the cook.
