This antique wooden chair was placed in front of a large open window, creating the ideal spot for relaxing. Favorite books are stored in a nearby glass end table and colorful flowers are positioned on top.
Clean, white walls and minimal decoration give this eat-in kitchen, from designer Alison Davin, an open, airy feel that is hallmark of contemporary design. The centerpiece is a tall farmhouse table doubles as a kitchen island and is accompanied by an assortment of unmatched wooden chairs.
Black fur trimmed with green and a nail-head finish back these stylish dining chairs. The green shade makes a larger statement from the seat cushion, also finished with nail-head trim. These textures come together in a black wood frame.
A natural wood dining table adds beautiful raw shape and warm color against the cool tones of the gray dining room. Smoothly sanded wooden chairs compliment the table while creating a slight textural contrast. A stone chandelier gives an older feel to the design while the wall art brings a more contemporary feel to the room.
The bulbed, traditional frame of the chair is a beautiful design contrast to the more contemporary look of the metallic cocktail table. Neutral chair cushions add a subtle pattern to the room while a velvet pillow adds a soft pop of color.
A triangle table is a simple twist on the conventional table shape perfect for adding a touch of intrigue to this simple balcony design. The natural wood furniture finish matches the wood floor for a calm and cohesive outdoor look. A wire railing leaves the space feeling more open and connected to the surrounding yard.
A long black dining table is lined with unique wood chairs over a faded floor rug. Open space surrounding the table creates an open feel for the room. Gray built-in cabinetry lines the walls for concealed storage below window benches. Colorful throw pillows, Aa plant centerpiece and a large view of the outdoors decorates the room.
“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.”
