Often the largest and most obvious decor addition to the dining room, the china hutch can go on to define the style, mood and the ambiance of the dining room with ease. Even though most of us tend to gravitate towards the antique, traditional and vintage pieces, these utilitarian delights find their way into even the most contemporary of dining areas. Versatile, striking and practical, here is a look at 30 of the very best around.
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!
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.
In fact, the collection even includes Asian-style dessert plates that are inspired by Japanese family crests, proving you can mix and match blue and white dinnerware patterns. Don‘t forget that you can accent blue and white tabletop palettes with bright hues such as red, orange, yellow and turquoise.
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.
