Putting together a dining room with a live-edge table is much more about the rest of the room than the table itself. A top quality natural-edge table with a beautiful finish will most likely be an expensive purchase (even if you buy it from your local craftsman), but it is well worth the money spent. There are always cheaper alternatives around, but we suggest you buy the best table you can afford, as this will help you reduce costs in the long run. Adding a small natural-edge bench crafted from the same wood as the table, a beautiful credenza or buffet in a different wooden finish, or even just a small side table in the corner can give the room a more curated look.
We start off with Asian-style dining rooms that are bit different from the usual perception of these spaces. Most homeowners associate a relaxing, serene Japanese style with all ‘Asian spaces‘, and while we will get to those in a bit, exquisite and opulent Asian-inspired dining rooms are equally amazing. These colorful and smart spaces borrow extensively from Chinese traditions and design elements, and there is no shortage of hues like glittering gold, vivacious red and bold black here. Fabulous lighting and ornate ceilings add to this look, while original wall art with Chinese flavor can take it to a completely different level!

It seems authentically retro when filled with multi-colored accessories, bright and beautiful seating and a smart dining table. This is a wonderful solution for the small dining space in studio apartments as well!
Often the largest and most obvious decor addition to the dining room, the china hutch can go on to define the style, mood and the ambiance of the dining room with ease.

Versatile, striking and practical, here is a look at 30 of the very best around.
