As 2013 begins, many people pledge to keep resolutions around eating healthier, cooking at home and having family dinners. But before you put food out on the table, perhaps it’s time to take another look at your dining table first. Meal times are not just about food, but they are about family and friends coming together. Take a look at these three trends in dining room furniture and get ready to feed your style, too!
Dining Sets: Simple and Clean
Much like food trends for 2013, dining room furniture trends are expected to revolve around designs that are simple and clean. Think straight legs over curvy. If you are concerned the look will be cold, pair your sleek table with upholstered dining chairs or accent your dining set’s beautiful wood with pretty table linens.
A Dash of Color
Every good cook knows even the best ingredients require some seasoning. Think of adding color much the same way you add salt and pepper to taste. Depending on your decor, you can go with a colorful centerpiece or table cloth and napkins, or you can choose colorful chairs to bring color into the space. Wall art, home accents and even your dishes are other ways to infuse color into your dining area.
Display Your Stuff
Another trend in dining room furniture is open shelving. This means sideboards, buffets and china cabinets with glass doors or no doors at all. This creates an airiness in these sometimes hefty pieces, and it gives you a chance to show off your dishes.
We hope these trends satisfy your appetite and fill you up with ideas for redecorating your own dining room!
