Putting together a dining room with a live-edge table is much more about the rest of the room than the table itself. A top quality natural-edge table with a beautiful finish will most likely be an expensive purchase (even if you buy it from your local craftsman), but it is well worth the money spent. There are always cheaper alternatives around, but we suggest you buy the best table you can afford, as this will help you reduce costs in the long run. Adding a small natural-edge bench crafted from the same wood as the table, a beautiful credenza or buffet in a different wooden finish, or even just a small side table in the corner can give the room a more curated look.
Even though it does not seem all too obvious, a beautiful hutch is far more versatile than those built-in cabinets that most of us tend to veer towards in modern dining rooms. For starters, you can easily move around the hutch so that it matches with your latest decorating scheme and seasonal festivities. If you are throwing a weekend party and need additional square footage, then the hutch can simply disappear into another room, while it can take center stage as you host an amazing family dinner on Thanksgiving or Christmas! You can decorate the vintage hutch with much more than just fancy china, as scented candles, artwork and even a festive garland will seem perfectly at home in these vintage and antique displays. Then there is all that added storage space to tuck away tableware that you rarely use. No matter how you look at it, a classic hutch is a dependable and adaptable allay in your quest for that perfect dining room!
A blend of modern and Asian styles is pretty easy to achieve, and you can mix several contrasting elements from different cultures in such a setting without having to go down the eclectic route. The simplicity of a beautifully crafted, oriental room divider, some framed scrolls that you picked up from your recent trip to China, or maybe even a statue of artwork depicting Buddha can get the job done without demanding a complete makeover of your existing, modern dining space. Custom dining tables in wood, intricate wooden carvings and breezy lantern lighting can also usher in the ’Asian-inspired vibe‘, even while seamlessly amalgamating with the contemporary appeal of the open plan living area.
