It’s also important to know exactly how you’ll be using the space. If the dining experience alone isn’t enough to make you want a dining room then think some other things you can be doing in this space. It can be an entertainment area in which case there are certain elements that need to be included in the design. It can also serve as an office or as a library.
If space is of a concern, opt for round table. This shape is perceived to be warm and inviting. It works well for families with young children because there's no sharp corners. A drawback of this style is that reaching across it can prove challenging.
If you don’t have a separate dining zone, take a look around your home. If the occasion demands, or you just feel like it, why not set up a temporary dining area in an underused space? Position a slimline table in a narrow corridor or hallway. Keep the space fuss-free and bring in furniture from other rooms or use pieces that can be folded away, stacked or moved around at a moment’s notice.
Furniture from the mid-century was simplistic in design. Clean lines, robust curves, and not overly ornate with their design. Dark woods for your tables and chairs, The most common woos used in this era, and look best for this design, are pieces made of these types of wood, teak, walnut, oak and rosewood. You can mix modern style furniture with older, vintage-style pieces to create this unique look. You may want to consider shopping at flea markets, vintage stores and estate sells to try to get hold of authentic mid-century pieces. These will be quality pieces, and not replicas, although you can go that route if you choose, if it becomes hard to come by pieces you feel comfortable with.
