Vivacious color, gorgeous patterns that range from geometric to floral, and of course, spaces that are full of personality and effervescence, retro is a style that is unmistakable and at times over the top. It is a style that has been heavily borrowed from in the last few years, and with the cyclic nature of fashion and design making it a hit among the hip crowd, retro design elements coupled with vintage vignettes are currently all the rage. But infusing some of this lively brilliance into your home decor can be hard, especially for a generation that was taught the simplicity of the 90’s and its functional design principles.
Even though most homeowners love to combine modern and contemporary styles with an Asian-inspired dining space, you need not always be bound by this norm. Get a touch creative and consider what looks best in your own house and how the style will interact with the kitchen and living room next to the dining area. Those who love a mash of industrial and Asian styles can give their lovely dining room an exposed brick wall backdrop coupled with decorative pieces from the Far East. It is pretty simple to combine a Japanese design style with minimalism, and you should not have too much trouble mixing shabby chic or even traditional dining room elements with your newfound love for Asian design.
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!
If there is one style that is a wonderful amalgamation of varied cultures, traditions, nuances and diverse backdrops, then it is surely Moroccan. A constant influx of ever-changing Asian, European, Middle Eastern and, of course, African influences has turned Morocco into a cultural crucible of sorts where all of these drastically different elements intermingle and coexist in a seamless fashion. Carrying with it an air of exotic opulence, timeless beauty and the magic of the Saharan landscape, this is a decorating style that is perfect for the unique and exquisite dining room.
The design and decor revolution in the last few years has been all about 'green'.

Natural-edge tables are great centerpieces that immediately draw your attention and give the modern interior a more soothing and natural aura. And heading the pack in this section is the unique and exclusive live-edge dining table.
