Dining Room – Concept Proposal

Post holiday season – many of us are reflecting on how we can fit more friends and family into our homes when we host parties! I know I def had a few people eating Christmas dinner on their laps on the floor this year and I don’t think I’m alone!

A client came to me recently asking for some budget friendly – but stylish! – suggestions for a wood panelled dining space! She hadn’t actually gotten around to filling the room with any furniture but was desperate to start hosting dinner parties and having friends over!

Here’s the space:


GAH! Someone went a bit panelling mad!

If I knew anything about this space – it was that we would have to avoid as much as possible ANY wood dining furniture as wood-on wood-on wood can only really go so far.

You may think that sounds easy – but its really actually quite difficult. Most designers – especially with the current trend of mid century being so hot – are using alllllllll the wood. Clearly my criteria had to lean towards other natural elements such as leather, marble and metal.
