Want to go more midcentury with just a pinch of retro thrown in? That definitely seems to be a more popular option among homeowners than dining space that adopts a kitschy retro theme. Midcentury design brings a certain sense of inherent ’order`, thanks to the use of clean, straight lines and uncomplicated design. Finding a compromise between both worlds is absolutely possible with a bright, colorful sideboard or a classic credenza with a lustrous sheen that sits in the background, even as your contemporary dining room sits proudly in the foreground.
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.
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.

Versatile, striking and practical, here is a look at 30 of the very best around.
