We are always looking for ways that we can combine aesthetics with smart, space-savvy decor to create a more efficient and ergonomic modern home. When it comes to kitchen and dining spaces in contemporary apartments and urban residences, the line is pretty blurred with one space flowing into the next. The ever-growing popularity of open plan living has only helped in bringing the dining room and kitchen together further, and we are currently at a point where the formal, dedicated dining room is a rarity of sorts! It is in interiors like this that banquette seating is a great, space-conscious option.
Round tablecloths aren`t just for dining tables. In fact, there are many reasons to introduce a tablecloth into your living area as a covering for an accent piece, such as a side table. For one thing, it adds a dose of elegance, and it can cover even the most basic of tables, instantly upping the style factor. A tablecloth can also introduce an accent color into your interior, as shown by the blue and lavender living area below.
But how do you ensure that the banquette fits into the style of the kitchen or the dining space you envisioned for open plan living? A good start would be to opt for a wooden bench that does away with excesses and embraces clean design along with simple, straight lines. Tufted seating or extravagant U-shaped or curved banquettes really do not fit in with the unassuming charm of Scandinavian style.
The dedicated dining room might be fading away ever so slowly in favor of that open plan dining area that easily and effortlessly blends in with the living space and kitchen, but there are some design elements that remain forever young. Even though contemporary designers are busy designing modular shelves that unite the living space, kitchen and dining area into one flowing family zone, the allure of a classic hutch or china cabinet still remains as strong as ever. For some a throwback to simpler times and for others a practical and essential piece of furniture, the dining room hutch is hard to ignore!
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!
