Bon Appétit: How to Create a Deliciously Stylish Dining Room

The dining room is an essential space in any home. It is where families come together to share meals, create memories, and connect with each other. As a modern furniture company with over 100 years of experience, Rosenthal Interiors understands the importance of having a stylish and functional dining room. In this article, we will share some tips and tricks from our world-class designers to help you style your dining room and make it stand out with accents.

Choose a Statement Dining Table

The dining table is the centerpiece of the dining room, so it's essential to choose a statement piece that reflects your style and personality. At Rosenthal Interiors, we specialize in contemporary furniture, especially those from Italy, Scandinavia and of course the United States of America. We offer a wide range of dining tables that come in different shapes, sizes, and materials, such as glass, wood, chrome, and marble. And some of them even move with the help of a battery powered motor which can extend the table by the push of a button! A statement dining table will not only enhance the look of your dining room but also set the tone for the rest of the decor.

Our showrooms have hundreds of rug options from a range of price points and designs. This one is from Calligaris.

Add Texture with a Rug

A rug is a simple yet effective way to add texture and warmth to your dining room. It can also be a great way to introduce a pop of color or pattern. Rug layering is still in, though we prefer the single expressive color for a dining room space. We have a variety of rugs that can complement any dining room style. Many styles of rug are timeless and pair with most layouts. Whether you prefer a contemporary, traditional, modern, or eclectic look, we have the perfect fit for your dream look. Some of our rugs are available to purchase right off the floor. Be sure to ask your designer if the rug you love is ready to go home with you.

Light Up Your Dining Room

Lighting is another crucial element in any dining room. It can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere while also highlighting your dining table and other decor pieces. Pendant lights are a popular choice for dining rooms, as they provide a focal point and add a touch of elegance. Alternatively, you can also opt for wall sconces or table lamps to create a softer ambiance. The trend of 2023 is big windows with ample sunshine and surfaces which absorb rather than reflect light. Not everyone is so lucky with the windows in their interior. Talk with your designer on how you can bring in more natural light or create a feeling of refreshing light without the sun.

Choose Statement Chairs

Your dining chairs should be comfortable, functional, and stylish. At Rosenthal Interiors, we offer a wide range of dining chairs that come in different materials, colors, and designs. Choosing statement chairs can help enhance the overall look of your dining room while also providing a comfortable seating experience. We recommend chairs upholstered with high quality fabric or leather that will stand up to a rigorous scrub. Ask your designer to take you to our fabric design lounge to help you pick out the color and material you love.

Accessories can be a great way to add a personal touch to your dining room. It can also be an opportunity to showcase your style and taste.

We also recommend finding some matching tableware, such as elegant dinner sets and placemats, to complete your look. Speak with our designers to help you find the best place to shop for tableware for your intended design.

In conclusion, styling your dining room with accents is all about creating a comfortable, functional, and stylish space that reflects your personality and taste. At Rosenthal Interiors, we specialize in contemporary furniture, especially those made with the highest quality standards. Whether you're looking for a statement dining table, a cozy rug, elegant lighting, statement chairs, or unique art + accessories, we have everything you need to make your dining room stand out.
