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!
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.
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!
In fact, we can see this exact strategy below, thanks to these aqua, grey and navy Embossed Ceramic Bowls from Urban Outfitters. You’re free to purchase just one, but don’t they look fabulous in a set?! Many of today's top product photos feature pastel items set against a rich-toned backdrop, and this Set of 4 Bloom Plates from Crate & Barrel couldn‘t be more striking on the dark wooden tabletop below. Watercolor style is alive and well, and the four different color palettes presented in the design of the plates are the perfect way to add variety to your tabletop.
Do not fret about the style of your dining room too much when you are shopping for or custom ordering a live-edge table. While simple things like choosing a table with a light, even grain of wood for modern interiors while opting for tables crafted from darker tones of wood for rustic and Mediterranean rooms helps, it is not an absolute must. Try to find balance in the rest of the room by opting for chairs, a credenza or even the rug and pendant fixture that show the live-edge table in the best light. You will be surprised at how well these tables blend in with styles ranging from industrial, shabby chic and Bohemian to minimal and transitional!
