In the dining room, a modern dining table seats ten. With cushioned dining chairs on one side, two upholstered head chairs and plush bench seating against the window, this dining space is the height of comfort and luxury.
To give the HGTV Dream Home 2015 dining table a cozier look, a plush bench sits in for traditional wooden chairs. “We did a banquette that’s upholstered, which could accommodate three children and even three adults,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
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.
Who said formal needs to be boring? Add vibrant color to a formal dining space to create a relaxing, fun vibe. Shades of blue are divided by a white chair rail that unite the wall and curtains. The plush, blue tufted sofa becomes the focal point, accented with multi-colored throw pillows. The green palm tree leaves add natural dimension and color.
Plush, upholstered white chairs with nailhead trim pair with French country wood chairs in this beautiful, neutral dining room. A zebra area rug covers the dark hardwood floors, while a contemporary chandelier illuminates the chic space.
Mix textures and finishes for a distinguished style. The rustic raw wood barstools at this kitchen island create a great contrast with the plush dining table chairs and tie in with the hand scraped wood table. The mixture of textures, says Cindi MacPherson of The Interior Partners in Atlanta, is something that many homeowners miss when they decorate themselves.
The formal dining room is ready for the most dignified of dinner parties with a plush gray rug underfoot, upholstered dining chairs and, in the back of the room, a striking black hutch for wine storage.
This soft dining room features an all-over neutral color palette paired with traditional arched doorways and white crown moldings. Leather ivory and plush powder blue chairs are positioned around a lacquered dining table with a gold candelabra chandelier. A mirrored console cabinet provides a spot for two lamps.
This light green dining room sits just off of the open plan kitchen, making it a cinch to transition between the two spaces. A blend of chairs, including plush gray and neutral options, line the rectangular dining table, while exposed beam ceilings with neutral wood planks continue from the dining room to the kitchen.
This dining room features wall-to-wall windows, allowing natural light to illuminate the space. Two metal starburst chandeliers lend a fun touch, while plush blue chairs line the glass table. A neutral stone accent wall is paired with an exotic wood plank ceiling, while a brown console cabinet finishes the look of the space.
Several seating options throughout this cozy kitchen make it a comfortable space for mingling or just grabbing a quick bowl of cereal in the mornings. Two green and white patterned chairs and a plush green banquette seat line a small table, while taupe suede stools are positioned along a neutral granite breakfast bar.
A stone wall and rough-hewn ceiling beams add and Old World sensibility to this transitional dining room. The neutral palette is dressed up with colorful artwork and plush navy-blue dining chairs. Wine storage built in to the room makes choosing the right vintage for meals a snap.
Upholstered, elegant dining chairs with high backs provide a transitional design element to this dining room by designer Valerie Ruddy. Borrowed from the look of the classic wing chair, the chair style here is given a modern and sleek update. To one side of the room, a bench serves as a bridge within the open-plan design and can be used for entertaining groups without obstructing views. With an abundance of comfortable and plush furnishings, this dining room is just right for entertaining family and friends.
