5. Match your aestheticYour dining table should meld seamlessly into your room’s design aesthetic, so it’s a good idea to consider its style carefully before putting your money down. From contemporary to classic, eclectic to shabby chic, there are a range of styles you can choose from to turn your table into a hero piece while still maintaining your overall decor.
11. Firm: The Hidden GalleryLocation: New DelhiAll things white and beautiful – this modern dining room with a custom dining table in wood, complemented by the wooden floor and white chairs, gets a punch of style with the flower-like pendant hanging right above.
The floor above is also a smart, modern space filled with pieces designed by their budding designer daughters, who are currently studying and working abroad. “The blue wooden chair kept on the left has an emotional value. It was made by us, and my older daughter and her friend picked it up for their school project and painted it in a pop art style. Although our daughter has moved abroad, we still keep this piece in the dining area,” Preeti says. The dining area has a mix-and-match design narrative, accompanied by a few eclectic elements. Take, for instance, the imported white Italian chairs that are combined with the custom wooden table. Behind the dining table is a wooden console made in solid teak in light finish, which draws the eyes to the corner of the room. Along the same line of sight, the grey and cream doors stand out.Dining light: Lightbox; furniture: The Hidden Gallery
