Dining in style doesn’t need to take a back seat while the economic climate is volatile, you can still set the scene you want with some fantastic-quality, affordable pieces.
Here’s our inspiration for the cost-conscious shopper.
The look is part-classic, part Scandi chic, with some great finishes that keep the overall approach clean and fresh. Teaming indigo shades with pure white brings a smart, crisp feel to your scheme and, by adding a coloured rug, you can cleverly define and warm your space in an open-plan living environment.
Don’t forget your lighting. A low-hung central pendant light works brilliantly to add drama and becomes a key focal point in your dining area to really tie the look together.
You can spruce up your dining room easily and relatively cheaply by buying new chairs to go with your existing table. It’s a great way to create an individual look and really makes a statement if you mix & match the chair colours too.
Remember, the new chairs will need to fit around your existing table, so measure carefully! As a rough guide allow about 60cm of table top for each person at a rectangular table and 75cm for a round table.
Team a rectangular table with bench seating for a more laid-back dining experience.
Introducing a coloured wall with paint or wallpaper will really create personality.
If space is restricted choose clear acrylic or polypropylene chairs that will create the illusion of light and space. For some great ideas take a look at the Kartell collection
