If you love a live-edge dining table, then the hardest choice past deciding the style of the dining space would definitely be the chairs that go with your new woodsy masterpiece. Once again, the wide variety of chairs, benches, loveseats and banquette benches coupled with vibrant, natural-edge tables on display today should convince you of the versatility of this dashing table. Lovers of midcentury design can opt for chairs like the classic Eames molded plastic chair, the Wishbone chair or even the extravagant Panton Cone chair! Whether you are a fan of acrylic chairs from Philippe Starck or love one of those iconic chairs from the 30`s, the live-edge table accommodates all!
There are times when the kitchen in the backdrop or the living room in the foreground brings color to the Scandinavian dining space with banquette. All you need to do here is repeat the dominant hue of the living area or the kitchen in the dining space, but with subtlety and discretion. Pendant lighting above the corner banquette and additional chairs around the dining table can also add color to the classy Scandinavian space.
When shopping for a round tablecloth, choose a quality piece that’s easy to clean. We‘re talking machine washable, folks! We love the classic look of offerings by Restoration Hardware. The three tablecloths that follow all come from Crate & Barrel, and their classic simplicity is hard to beat. First up: the Beckett Natural 90″ Round Linen Tablecloth, crafted from pure, natural linen. Our next two featured tablecloths come from Williams-Sonoma, and they bring a fresh dose of pattern to today’s post. Say hello to the Berry Meadow Print Tablecloth in Blue, which has a diameter of 90″ and is sure to add Provençal style to the dining area of your choice.
When it comes to banquettes that need to fit in with Scandinavian design, it is best to use color in moderation. It is often the plush seating of the banquette that brings color to these dining spaces, but a wiser option would be to keep the bench seat as neutral as possible. Instead, turn to throw pillows, cushions and other decorative pieces to add color to the banquette dining area. This gives you plenty of decorating flexibility, and you can change the accent colors as trends wax and wane over time. It keeps the core design of the dining space constant.
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.
