Showstopping Chandelier

Lacquered walls and ceiling set the tone for drama in this jaw-dropping dining room. An extravagant crystal chandelier suspends over the art deco dining table and serves as a showstopping statement piece in the design. Upholstered velvet dining chairs appear polished and luxe, and pale blue drapes add softness and romance to the space.

Crisp Cottage Dining Room

Charm is abundant in this contemporary cottage dining room. Crisp white built-ins line the back wall and showcase the homeowners’ serveware collection though illuminated glass doors. Black and white toile wallpaper enhances the remaining walls with timeless flair and vibrant abstract art infuses a youthful energy into the design. Classic, kelly green farmhouse chairs create beautiful contrast against the gray washed wood table and overhead, two brass clad cone pendants add glamour to the space.

Bamboo + Blue

Navy blue curtains pair with bamboo chairs and a honey-stained wooden hutch in this inviting and dimensional dining room. Matching, oil-rubbed bronze chandeliers illuminate the oval dining table and coordinate with the navy blue window frames for an effortless and cohesive design.

Decadent Details

This elegant dining room is decked in layered textures and lavish metallic finishes. Muted Shibori wallpaper creates a statement wall behind a gray, weathered buffet and an oversized black and white painting. A gilded clover chandelier hangs above the stone table and a mix of glamorous white and ice blue upholstered dining chairs. Moss centerpieces and a tall fiddle leaf fig bring lush color to the otherwise airy design.

Earthy Dimension

Casual and cozy, this earthy modern dining room serves as a special spot to gather with family and friends. Interior designer Breeze Giannasio expertly pairs rich brown hues with edgy black finishes to create a space that feels clean and curated. Honey-toned planks enhance the charming ceiling overhead and pop against the white walls surrounding the room.

Luxe Layers

This contemporary dining room features a dramatic globe chandelier with soft sea green hues that connect to the seaside locale. Deep earth tones, layered textures and relaxed furnishings soften the crisp white and charcoal framework and reflect the natural beauty of the surrounding harbor. A modern fireplace and glass-front cabinets add to the sleek, contemporary vibe.

Rich Hues

An ornate ruby rug pairs with art deco style velvet chairs, vibrant artwork and two, modern bubble chandeliers to create an eclectic and inspiring space. The gray wall color enhances the Craftsman wainscoting that lines the walls and creates a feeling of coziness and intimacy in the open floorplan design.

Fine Dining

An ornate crystal chandelier dangles above a stately mahogany table offering a formal and luxurious touch to this traditional dining room design. At the head of the table, two upholstered blue chairs balance the rich wood tones used throughout the space. A showy and sizeable magnolia arrangement serves as a fragrant focal point in the room.

Plush Accommodations

Four tailored arm chairs and two matching upholstered tufted ottomans provide plush seating for friends and four-legged family alike in this cozy dining room. A wall of steel-framed windows expands the length of the room and washes the table with light, while offering unmatched views of the back lawn. An impressive pair of fiddle leaf figs flanks the window, their lush green foliage complementing the pale blue hues used throughout the design.

Transitional Blue + White

Masculine and feminine elements mingle in this beautiful, blue and white dining room. The transitional space features a pale blue ceiling and wainscoting paired with dainty, white floral wallpaper. Mahogany dining chairs surround a minimalist-style white dining table beneath a shimmering, silver chandelier.

Handsome Craftsman

The team at Terracotta Design Build brings this handsome dining room to life with classic, glossy millwork and textured, wood-grain wallpaper. A tulip table sits at the center of the room and is surrounded by six contemporary wood dining chairs. An extravagant foraged arrangement brings height to the center of the table and complements the earth tones seen throughout the design.

Punchy Pigment

Electric fuchsia and teal hues energize this whimsical, modern dining room. Midcentury-inspired turquoise dining chairs invite guests to gather around an impressive, blonde dining table at the center of the room. A brass disc chandelier dazzles above and a pair of brass sconces brighten the wall behind the art-clad buffet table.

Dapper Dining

This dapper dining room features rich burgundy walls framed by traditional white trim and crowned with a tray ceiling overhead. The high-contrast finishes are equal parts eye-catching and cozy. A glossy wood table runs the length of the room and is surrounded by houndstooth upholstered chairs. A vibrant, autumnal landscape painting is displayed behind the table and serves as the perfect finishing touch in the decadent dining room design.

Geometric Glamour

Muted mustard walls and grass cloth wallpaper on the ceiling give this contemporary dining room with warmth and texture. Cream and blue geometric upholstered chairs line the blocky table and a velvet settee serves as the head seat. A whimsical globe chandelier makes waves above and is a flawless complement to the circular moon artwork seen on the back wall.

Artsy Elegance

A bright red chandelier and colorful wall art make this modern dining space pop. Lit with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows, this room features plenty of contemporary touches, from the patterned rug to the minimalist white dining chairs.

Bold Brass + Textured Blue

A unique, textured blue paint coats the walls and pocket doors in this dramatic dining room. Ashy hardwood floors ground the design and a statement-making brass chandelier sparkles above a modern onyx table. Art deco-inspired velvet chairs tuck neatly beneath the table and mimic the linear details of the light fixture overhead.

Emboldened Neutrals

Neutrals make a dramatic impact on this contemporary dining room design. Cognac leather chairs surround the dining table and pop against the black and white area rug underfoot. A brass, linear sputnik chandelier pops against the matte white walls and three, neatly spaced geometric lanterns provide an appealing centerpiece for the table.

Slipcovered Southwestern

Interior designer Jaclyn Joslin expertly outfits this dining room with a mix of contemporary and Southwestern flair. Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors bathe the dining room with natural light. Slipcovered armchairs and woven dining chairs surround the table, while a stacked stone fireplace adds warmth to the space.

Dinner With a View

Dinner is served with a side of soaring Manhattan views in this contemporary home. A whimsical Bocci chandelier doubles as artwork above the expansive marble dining table and modern gray chairs.

Creamy Classic

This dining room design by Marie Flanigan is creamy, dreamy and classic. Light gray coats the handsome wainscoting and creates a soft backdrop for the upholstered dining chairs. Ornate sconces flank a textured abstract painting and a matching crystal chandelier offers an ethereal glow overhead.
