Effectively lighting the dining room is not just about the live-edge table alone. It is a part of the grander scheme of things that you always need to consider, regardless of the table you choose. But in the case of the natural-edge table, lighting needs to be even more precise, and what you need is a fabulous blend of ambient and focused lighting. Recessed lights coupled with smart pendants or dazzling cascading chandeliers often get the job done and ensure that the table becomes the undoubted showstopper of your dining space. If you wish to give your dining room a trendy makeover and a lasting facelift, then the live-edge table is definitely the right choice. In a world filled with glossy, polished and repetitive, manmade elements, it offers a pleasant change… A change that leaves you mesmerized!
Pastels are still going strong, and minty blue shows no signs of losing momentum! This Helena Sky Linen Tablecloth from Crate & Barrel is crafted from lightweight 100% linen. You can also purchase the piece in Graphite and Lilac. Speaking of lilac, can you spot the lilac napkin in this grouping of Helena Linen Napkins from Crate & Barrel? Note how the photo showcases a current trend: combining pastels with rich hues such as grey and navy!
The most exciting development in metallic style is the current obsession with iridescence. And why wouldn’t we want a rainbow of color at the dinner table?! Below we see the Electro Barware Kit from Urban Outfitters, which includes a shaker, strainer, cocktail spoon and jigger, all with a vivid electro finish. Abstract art and hand-drawn style are all the rage in the realm of graphic design, so it‘s no surprise that the look has made its way to the dining room table. It’s as if someone took a paintbrush to these Roar & Rabbit Tea Towels from West Elm. And that‘s why we love them!
We are always looking for ways that we can combine aesthetics with smart, space-savvy decor to create a more efficient and ergonomic modern home. When it comes to kitchen and dining spaces in contemporary apartments and urban residences, the line is pretty blurred with one space flowing into the next. The ever-growing popularity of open plan living has only helped in bringing the dining room and kitchen together further, and we are currently at a point where the formal, dedicated dining room is a rarity of sorts! It is in interiors like this that banquette seating is a great, space-conscious option.
But how do you ensure that the banquette fits into the style of the kitchen or the dining space you envisioned for open plan living? A good start would be to opt for a wooden bench that does away with excesses and embraces clean design along with simple, straight lines. Tufted seating or extravagant U-shaped or curved banquettes really do not fit in with the unassuming charm of Scandinavian style.
