We can hear you now, looking these images over: “I want to eat there!” We know; here at Stylish Eve, we feel the same way about most of these dining rooms! You don’t have to have a formal dining room to have a “knockout” space for entertaining your guests — or even “just” the family. Take a look at these images and you’ll see the tremendous variety of our favorite dining rooms for 2013. Choose from simple dark hardwood chairs and tables, sleek glass-topped numbers with neon-colored chairs, or the always-popular look of the farm table and cushioned seating. Eat at a picnic-style bench and casual table, one that seems to float above a lighted base, or a dignified, stately table beneath a crystal chandelier for timeless elegance.
Love modern style, or traditional, or both? Pair a traditional dining table with modern chairs that only “look” old-fashioned. The dining room’s a great place to indulge in high-backed, lavishly carved wooden chairs, gilt mirrors, sconces, and ornate chandeliers; it’ll make your guests feel like royalty! And don’t forget the placement of that dining area — some of the best “décor” you can have is great scenery from outside. Position your table so guests can enjoy a city skyline, a deck and outdoor “room,” a stunning garden, or an unbroken expanse of beach and sky, and it’ll be a place where people want to linger. And that’s the reason for a dining room, in the first place: a warm, cozy heart-of-your-home where people gather for good meals, great talk, and priceless memories.
