The dedicated dining room might be fading away ever so slowly in favor of that open plan dining area that easily and effortlessly blends in with the living space and kitchen, but there are some design elements that remain forever young. Even though contemporary designers are busy designing modular shelves that unite the living space, kitchen and dining area into one flowing family zone, the allure of a classic hutch or china cabinet still remains as strong as ever. For some a throwback to simpler times and for others a practical and essential piece of furniture, the dining room hutch is hard to ignore!
An iconic image of the 60‘s and 70’s that has been burned into our brains by Hollywood and TV is the cool diner with its jukebox in the backdrop and color being used in an expansive manner pretty much all around. If you have an unused corner in your kitchen or wish to turn one in the open plan living area into a dining nook, the cheerful booth or banquette is a great option indeed. It seems authentically retro when filled with multi-colored accessories, bright and beautiful seating and a smart dining table. This is a wonderful solution for the small dining space in studio apartments as well!
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!
