Dining Room / January 13, 2018 / Amelia Cao.
Dark wall, with dark wood furniture illuminated with warm lighting does not make the space seem narrow, as one would imagine, rather it makes the whole area appear quite warm and cozy. The black chairs complement the black wall, and the bench is definitely the center of attraction of this open dining space.
Another advantage of round tables is that they present no corners, meaning they are more comfortable (and less dangerous, when thinking about little toddlers manoeuvring around those sharp table edges).And let’s be honest: who hasn’t stumbled into a table’s edge and walked away with a sore or bruised hip?
As mentioned, rectangular tables present a certain advantage in terms of capacity that round- and square ones do not. Imagine having to place all the diners to be seated at this elongated table at a round one – you’d have to have a pretty big round table!. For big dinner parties, it’s best to opt for an elongated/rectangular table, as you get more space for chairs and guests.
We suspect that almost everybody has seen these dining chairs before, as the design has become nothing short of iconic. Structural wooden legs, connected with black metal struts and topped off with an ergonomic moulded plastic seat create a beautifully retro meets modern aesthetic and thanks to the popularity of the style, there's a version to suit all budgets. Even IKEA has a range of these, making them a cost-effective and practical investment.
