Mural-like wallpaper and patterned curtains ensure this traditional dining room doesn't feel tired or stuffy. Spider back dining chairs are enlivened with green upholstered seats, and a stunning chandelier crowns the space.
White, lyre back chairs with stripe cushions bring a traditional feel around a white, circular contemporary table. A stainless steel light fixture features four small lamp shades. A dark buffet brings a good color contrast to the gray walls and white dining area.
Rock walls create a tiered design in the yard above this rock-floor back patio. Plants and landscape lighting decorate the tiered sections. A modern table with matching chairs creates a dining area in the center.
A spider-like black chandelier adds an intriguing element to the timeless style of this dining space. Black chairs seated at the wood table create a timeless color combination against the surrounding white walls and window curtains.
A charcoal gray pattern wallpaper creates depth in this dining room design and allows the decorative white plates to pop. A long light fixture with crystal fringe runs parallel to the wood dining table. A high-back neutral chair at the head of the table faces the curtain-covered sliding glass door.
Wanting a space where they could enjoy lunch with the kids and host dinner parties in the evening, the homeowners asked the Barbour Spangle Design to transform their plain patio into a versatile eating area. Thus, a rustic wood table with six chairs centers the space, with a light gray floor to protect bare feet on sunny days.
While wooden and metal chairs are the easiest to clean, they’re not the most comfortable. An excellent alternative to wood and metal is an upholstered Louis XVI chair. Known for its fluted legs, square back and timeless style, this French piece works in modern and traditional settings. Linen and cotton upholstery options are great for spaces with active kids; however, leather and vinyl styles are the most kid-proof and easy to clean.
This windowed dining alcove brings a lot of visual interest to a small space. The reclaimed wood table is surrounded by rattan chairs in neutral tones on the sides. At the head and foot of the table are slipper chairs with green and white patterned backs and white leather seats, with wooden legs and nailhead trim. The most eye-catching element is a pair of artistic metal chandeliers on chains.
Double doors open to the back patio, where the owners have access to an outdoor kitchen, dining set and two lounge chairs for sunbathing. Shrubs soften the space and ensure that it speaks to its surroundings.
