The designers wanted a vintage quality for this guest bathroom and were inspired by old washstands. A sofa table became the perfect vanity, topped with marble corbels and a shelf. Smaller round mirrors and simple sconces next to the larger washstand helped balance the room's overall scale.
A wood-framed living room armchair is paired with a small, round metal side table to create a cozy spot to relax. A throw is ready for chilly nights and a vase of yellow flowers adds a punch of color to the neutral space.
Cherry stained cabinets are the hallmark of this kitchen wet bar, featuring three glass-front cabinets, a neutral granite countertop, a wine cooler and two large pantries. A small dining area with a round glass table and crystal chandelier provides the perfect space for casual entertaining.
Designer Brian Paquette packs this small condo's living room with loads of style. Large windows fill the space with ample light and highlight the metal bookshelf, round coffee table and simple black and white striped rug. Hot pink flowers add a pop of bright color to the mostly neutral palette.
In smaller rooms, like this penthouse's family room, embedding the TV into a bank of cabinets camouflages the screen and helps it from feeling so imposing. Rounded stools can be ottomans, extra seats or coffee tables, depending on the need.
This traditional kitchen combines comfort and style to create a space for the whole family. A small breakfast nook with fabric-covered chairs features a warm metallic pendant light above the round wooden table and bench. Ornate chandeliers light up the blue kitchen island with marble countertop and place settings for three guests.
Clean white walls provide a cool and calming retreat from the tropical heat. The focus of the dining room is the colorful abstract paintings from a local artist, so the furniture is kept simple and understated. A round table allows for a better flow for traffic through the small area, while white replica Ghost Chairs are stylish and practical.
Variety is the hallmark of the purple waffle plant (Hemigraphis alternata) family, which has members with broad, round, long or narrow leaves. Snow White (shown) is a small plant that unfurls light green leaves marked with white and pink. Purple waffle plant needs medium to high light to keep the pretty leaf coloring. Because of its small size, it’s a great choice for any room, fitting easily onto an end table, kitchen counter or nightstand.
A mix of round posts and flat beams creates the perfect bed frame shape for a classic rustic look. Brown bed linens blend beautifully with the frame allowing the mis of neutral and blue throw pillows to shine as a decorative accent. Small nightstands with table lamps and fresh floral arrangements mirror each other beside the bed.
In small spaces, keeping some furniture pieces up off the floor can go a long way to making a room appear larger. This retro bubble chair brings the fun AND helps make this bedroom feel a tad more spacious. The round shape of the chair and side table are a nice counterpoint to the all the squares found throughout the room.
Nothing evokes a summer feel quite like starfish and seashells. HGTV fan single_mom_on_a_budget dressed up her shabby chic dining room with her favorite beach elements in mind. She incorporated seashells into her year-round china display and then turned the dining table into a dreamy setup for four. Celebrate summer by creating a seasonal table setup of seashells, starfish, candles and small driftwood pieces. Invite people over for seafood favorites, like grilled fish, pan-roasted scallops and coconut shrimp, to go with the warm-weather theme.
A round glass table is an ideal choice for small spaces because of its compact shape and its barely-there appearance. If you are looking for glassware, you often can find pieces at thrift shops run by charitable organizations for 50 cents or a dollar each, amassing a great collection for less than 10 dollars that is curated by you, says Michiel Perry, founder and curator of Black Southern Belle.
An easy way to show off colorful dining chairs is to pair them with a glass-top table. Here, a midcentury modern chrome and glass table is encircled by retro diner chairs in a playful lattice-inspired design. In this dining room makeover, designer Ashley DeLapp's initial plan was to use a banquette with a long oval table for dining room seating, but she realized it wasn’t the best solution since it wouldn’t allow room for a storage piece. The designer instead chose the Platner table because it was round –– allowing for an easier flow in the small space –– and fitting for the midcentury-modern theme.
Creating a family-friendly hang out space that’s comfortable AND durable is easier than you think. This combination of sofa and chairs around a round table make the most of a small space. The disparate set was transformed into a kid-friendly space by simply upholstering the second-hand sofa and chairs in the same preppy plaid. A busier pattern holds up better to spills and crafting mishaps better than a solid fabric would.
The goal of this project was to modernize the open plan living space, but in a thoughtful way that would respect the location and also provide the young bachelor with a functional design. The narrow living room space was one of the biggest challenges in the space planning. By creating a wall hung entertainment unit and bookcase, with a large area rug and small cocktail tables, the narrow space was visually widened.
To keep the flow of the space fluid and to create visually interest in the corner of the main living space, a custom round dining table with "wishbone" chairs make a bright statement and feel inviting.
In HGTV Design Star season 4, Dan and Nathan painted an unexpected and bold graphical design across the walls and floor of this dining room. “I don't know if it's a pixelated map of the islands, stylized crime-scene outlines or a macro image of popcorn but I loveeeeeet!” says designer Candice Olson. “This room is a testament to the power of paint and how it can easily and inexpensively transform a space. We’re not talking simply color on the walls here but rather a big, bold powerful image (of something) that engulfs this space; walls, floor and all – wow! The lumber on the far wall is a brilliant design stroke adding warmth to the cool grays. The uniform, vertical application brings visual order, contrasting the great graphic chaos happening around the table. A Parsons-style table like this looks great but really doesn’t function well for seating lots of people. I would have liked to see a hollow pedestal table with the hole in the center used for low greens/grasses, or as a built-in ice bucket for wine and cold drinks. Right now the tall leaves in the center mean fighting your way through the jungle to see who you’re dining with. A round paper-lantern pendant or two over the table would provide beautiful light for dining and speak to the shapes of the ingenious wall-mounted light fixtures beyond. Small criticism for a room that is truly inspiring.”
