This dining room channels Asian aesthetics with light wood chairs that have a bamboo-like texture. A large framed cloud photo brings a feeling of the outside in, while a white and chrome dining table keeps things bright and airy.
This stylish kitchen breakfast nook features two teal dining chairs positioned around a round white table. An industrial chrome pendant light hangs overhead, while gray and white diamond-patterned wallpaper provides a fun backdrop.
The chic buffet features a textured facade and curvy chrome legs. Beachy accessories, like a soothing artwork and shells decorating a sleek white table lamp, reflect the oceanfront penthouse surroundings.
Hefty, black industrial pendant lights even out the substantial black table base. Chrome chairs and white walls and ceilings keep the space feeling airy and light, despite the hulking statement pieces.
Although in separate rooms, the living and dining rooms appear united and open thanks to glass railing along the cut-out wall. A white sectional and white chrome base coffee table enhances the bright and airy feel of the space.
Rustic meets modern in this contemporary dining table, where a wood-grain slab is topped with glass and paired with sleek metal legs. Arm-less white chairs have chrome legs that mimic the table's, while a one-of-a-kind pendant light chandelier makes a dramatic design statement.
A large chrome chandelier reflects the light colors in this sleek dining space. A modern white dining table with wood chairs defines the room's minimalistic style. A green palm plant and sophisticated gray and white Roman shades dress up the space and add a cozy touch to the room.
The elegantly white dining room features French doors that open to terraces with beautiful views of the ocean. Weathered ceiling planks bring a rustic quality to the space, where a sophisticated table is surrounded by contemporary black-and-chrome armchairs.
Shades of green unify the two areas in this eat-in kitchen: a pale green backsplash in the kitchen and green striped walls in the dining nook. Streamlined cabinetry, a white tulip table and a chrome barstool keep the look unfussy and classically modern.
This cute, tufted sofa with nail head details, graphic pillows and textured throw were the perfect additions to this contemporary space. The chrome legs of the sofa complement the glass table, while the white graphic print and fuzzy throw match the Asian stool, used here as an end table, to complete the space.
Flowers and plants automatically bring life and beauty into a room. Pretty white flowers rest in a chrome vase atop a rustic-meets-modern coffee table, both rugged and elegant. Simple armchairs with patterned pillows seem both clean and inviting, while the flokati area rug brings an added element of funk and comfort.
"Here contemporary reads as cold. All those severe straight lines, chrome, plastic and Plexiglas could stand to be tempered by a few flowing lines and the use of natural materials like wood and stone," said HGTV's Design Star judge Candice Olson. The contemporary living room showcases a black, triangular chair, a clear, plastic coffee table and white cubicle storage shelving. A gray shag rug adds texture to the smooth lines.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson transformed this mid-century home's boring dining room into a fresh and bright entertaining space. To make the room appear larger, she hung yellow floor-to-ceiling curtains along the length of one wall and painted the wall and ceiling a bright white. Neutral grasscloth wallpaper lines two walls and complements the soft yellow hue of the vintage dining chairs. A chrome and glass dining table and custom orb light fixture add contemporary flair to this otherwise vintage-style space.
