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:
Do not think of the dining room as a traditional dedicated room with four walls that serve no other purpose. With the advent of the open floor plan and its immense popularity, the ’60s and ’70s idea of box-like rooms seems all but redundant. Contemporary design is all about integrating the living room, dining space and the kitchen as one big, harmonious space. This is precisely why a small dining room is a good option, even if you do have some additional space to spare! Use an area rug to define the dining area. Large pendant lights, contemporary chandeliers and smart recessed lighting can also demarcate the boundaries in a subtle manner.
One increasingly popular design trend is the use of a bold pendant light as the ultimate dining room statement. In fact, when the light hangs low enough, sometimes it becomes a substitute centerpiece. What table trinkets could possibly compete with the circular-motif pendant light below, shown hanging over the Mille dining table by Bonaldo?
