Once a very traditional and dated dining room, this space is now a modern masterpiece. To lighten up the dark room, designers added ambient lighting, and to modernize the space, they brought in an elegant dining table and chairs that were upholstered in luxurious Missoni fabric. Modern art and an beautiful rug were also added to the space to modernize it.
Dark furnishings with Danish modern lines blend seamlessly with the traditional farmhouse architecture of this light-filled, modern dining room. Throughout the home, soft contemporary colors and modern furniture updates the space for a 21st-century family. Trim is darker than the walls, creating a crisp effect that makes the space stand out.
The dining room was once a narrow, closed off space with a tiered flooring separating this room from the rest of the house, so to maximize the home's potential and update its layout, Chip and Joanna removed the walls separating the dining room and living room and removed the tiered flooring. Now, the dining room is an elegant part of an open concept home whose flooring is all on one level. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Just off the kitchen and dining area, the new sitting room has modern slate floors and simple, gray linen window treatments. The home's original wainscoting was removed, modernizing the space, and the walls were painted a warm beige. To add contrast to the room, Joanna brought in bright yellow pillows and shiny, metallic lamps and tables, while a white picket gate with the work "family" attached to it hangs above the cozy, white sofa, softening the space.

Inherited Table is Centerpiece for Midcentury Modern Dining Room Renovation
`The dining set in this Midcentury Modern dining room was inherited by the homeowners who wished to have it included in the redesign of their home, so designers added some funky art an fun colors and textures to the space. Yellow modern art adds a cool pop of color to gray walls, and a modern chandelier is suspended above the table. To complete the space, new raw silk drapery was added to the windows to give the homeowners the option of privacy.
A long wooden dining table is surrounded by chic, white chairs, while a modern chandelier adds a glam note to the space. The open floor plan combines the dining space, living room and terrace for an inviting, perfect-for-entertaining space.
Designers brought the Midcentury Modern look to life in this newly redesigned home with a Broyhill Brasilia dining table and a custom banquette covered in gray tweed. The modern dining chairs were repurposed and recovered, with three of them coming to rest around the dining table and the fourth finding its home under the newly commissioned painting of Alexander Hamilton by Mike Johnson. To complete the space, designers hung a cubist light fixture and had a local artist custom paint the walls to put the finishing touches on the Midcentury Modern dining room.
In the dining room, the homeowners wanted to create an elegant, bright space, so designers used white as the basis for their design. This allows the walls to reflect the natural light of the windows at the front of the space, making this small room seem larger. Two modern art pieces add a splash of color to the space, while a modern dining table and modern chairs provide seating. In addition to the natural light, a modern chandelier hangs from the ceiling adding elegance and providing light at night and on cloudy days.
