White long table in this large open kitchen, decorated with fresh flowers in subtle colors create a very fresh and soothing dining ambiance. Lot of natural light in the entire hall adds to the openness of the dining area. You would love to see this yet another dining area dominated by white.
If you have one formal and one casual dining space, you can really go to town with different chair designs for both. A casual spot will do best with sociable, comfy seating that naturally leads to conversation, whereas a formal setting is where you can play around with luxury fabrics. If you only have one dining room, you're going to need to combine all of these elements in one set of chairs, if possible!
