The day lit dining room is a mealtime haven, its pastel green and yellow chairs and pale blonde onyx table providing a peaceful setting, complemented by an eclectic brass light fixture and beige floor tiles.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
7. Size It Up“Measure twice, cut once” is timeless advice. An often-neglected measurement is the arm height of dining chairs: Don’t buy chairs without it. Check the height against your tabletop if space is tight and chairs have to be tucked under when not in use. Having them protruding into a high-traffic space impedes movement around the table. In this situation, the best option may be going with armless ones. These smart chairs fit neatly below the tabletop to allow free traffic flow.Tip: Something I learned the hard way: Check the seat height if buying vintage chairs, as some are lower than modern ones and make an uncomfortable fit with a modern table.
The sun-kissed dining room is a pastel haven, ideal for relaxed family gatherings. The pale mint- and sand-toned chairs and blonde onyx table conjure a minimalist mealtime setting. Dining chairs: Flexform; dining table is custom-made
3. Dining table settingYour tableware and table decor would depend on the menu and theme of the party. Choose your cutlery accordingly and set each place beforehand; this will avoid last-minute rushing around looking for missing pieces of cutlery. Finish off with nicely ironed cloth napkins – not paper napkins.
