We start by reinforcing a favorite decorating mantra: there is power in numbers. In fact, we recently made this point in our Decoist article on displaying collections with style. Below we see a group of vases atop the Draught Dining Table from CB2:

You’re buying produce at the grocery store anyway–why not let it pull double duty as your dining table centerpiece? In fact, when you’re entertaining and your table will be packed with food, sometimes a large floral arrangement just isn’t practical. Keep it classy with a centerpiece of fruits or veggies. For example, a cluster of vivid oranges in a crisp white bowl is the perfect complement to the Odyssey White Dining Table from CB2:

Sure, we’ve showcased a few va-va-voom centerpieces that make a dramatic statement. But a surprisingly large number of striking dining table centerpieces are simple, elegant and easy to reproduce. This is good news for those of us who are on a budget or who simply change our minds often and want the flexibility of switching out one centerpiece for another on a whim. Check out the diverse array of ideas below:

Size does matter, but at the very same time it is a very relative term. We say this after looking at many apartments and interiors that are dubbed as ‘small’, yet are sufficiently large enough in our humble opinion. In simpler terms, what might be a small dining room for you might be something that works perfectly well for others. Never design a dining area by simply borrowing the blueprint from a friend’s home. If you are a young couple that eats out most days and rarely entertains guests, you do not need a large Thanksgiving-styled table. A small table for two will do just fine most of the time. Why do you need a huge table that takes up space when all you bring home is takeout?

Combining a chic, compact and efficient dining area with the kitchen is the modern trend. As the kitchen island often doubles as an informal gathering spot, there is little need for an expansive alternative. With designers offering some ultra-cool tables that allow you to play with different themes, shades and styles, small dining rooms and dining areas represent a hip trend that is here to stay.

You can convert pretty much any corner of your home into a compact dining area. From the space next to the kitchen island to the small corridor that leads to the bedroom; all you need is the right table! There are plenty of Murphy tables that can be easily folded away flat against the wall when not in use. Some others can double as a sleek workstation. With chairs being easy to relocate, you can easily create a dining room that vanishes away when not in use!

As we often flip through the images of expansive villas and amazing apartments, we tend to stumble across really lavish dining rooms that almost appear unreal. While you cannot replicate the magnitude, there is no reason why one should not add a dining space that is equally sophisticated and charming. To achieve this in limited space, try to think beyond the usual formula of just one table and four or six identical chairs. As you can see with the many homes featured here, loveseats, small couches, acrylic chairs coupled with compact sofas and a combination of completely different chairs can be used to craft a stunning and eclectic dining room.

Small dining rooms and areas are inherently a lot more difficult to design than compact bedrooms and tiny living spaces. We often complain about the lack of available space in our own homes to find an excuse for pretty much every design conundrum. But for the imaginative, space is definitely not a constraint
