“We opted for a durable, solid wood dining table from Crate & Barrel for this casual eat-in kitchen nook. It’s perfect for family meals and works equally well for homework or crafts,” says the designer of this project. When matching table and chairs, she says, “always consider the leg finish of your dining chairs: They should be in the same tone family as your dining table. A few shades lighter or darker is fine, as long as the underlying hue is similar.”
With its brick barrel ceiling and rough stone walls, this dining room could double as a wine cellar. Heavy, hand-carved dining chairs surround a wood dining table under the glow of a filigreed chandelier.
The light-filled dining room, one of the home's formal rooms, boasts a barrel vaulted ceiling and a fireplace. A traditional wood dining table, an elegant chandelier and classy dining chairs complete the sophisticated look.
The flat projection aluminum awning over this balcony makes the space feel like an additional room. A metallic coffee table is positioned between two gray barrel chairs and a reclaimed wooden bench, while a metal wire railing encloses the space.
A sleek wooden table with glass legs is paired with a combination of neutral chairs and plaid barrel chairs for a comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere. A cool, contemporary chandelier adds an abstract quality to the space, while a built-in china cabinet provides much-needed storage for the family's dishes.
The dropped ceiling over the bed area create a cozy enivornment of clean white linens and contemporary white furnishings. Over the seating area, the ceiling soars and features exposed wood beams. Woven barrel chairs pair with a plush sofa to create a sitting and TV watching space.
A late 19th century Turkish oushak rug in creamy coral and gold sets the tone in this elegant dining room. A dark wood dining table with Queen Anne chairs is positioned beneath a detailed barrel ceiling. The walls are upholstered in fabric that coordinates with the drapes and valance.
This dining room from designer Vanessa-DeLeon is flanked with column-framed arched doorways and accentuated with an eclectic mix of the formal and rustic to create a dramatic and unexpected look. Banquettes in black crushed velvet sit at both ends of the wooden dining table, while eight sturdy leather and antique gold barrel dining chairs make up the rest of the seating in the space.
