Holiday Head Start: All About The Dining Room

Above, modern lines and luxurious details define this dining room by Bella Mancini

The dining room is a space that truly shines during the holiday season. Even if you use yours throughout the year, the dining room gets a little extra attention in November and December — from the special heirloom silver and special china place settings used for Thanksgiving, to the fine crystal brought out for holiday gatherings. But while we consider these details for gatherings, we likely haven’t given much thought to the pieces in our dining rooms. Whether you’re looking to change things up or are shopping for your first dining room, here are some of our favorite tables and chairs currently available at Viyet:

Kravet Paris Dining Table & Thonet Era Chairs

This decidedly French (though undeniably modern) pairing brings together a classic bistro chair with a streamlined table from Kravet. The shapes of the chair legs echo those of the table, while the rounded backs contrast against the strong lines of the tabletop. It’s a look that won’t need much in terms of ornamentation — a simple runner and minimalist dishes are all you need to set a stunning scene.

Holly Hunt Liaigre Courier Dining Table & DDC Mohair Dining Chairs

The ruby mohair upholstery makes a dramatic choice for the winter. The more modern X-base table keeps the upholstery from looking too over-the-top. Together, the set creates a warm and inviting vibe for the dining room.

Ralph Lauren Bohemian Rectangle Dining Table & Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Crosby Dining Chairs

Modern meets traditional in a bold way with this pairing. The tailored neutral chairs shift the focus to the sculptural base of the Ralph Lauren table. The extra chairs are versatile enough to be used as accents throughout the home, or perhaps in a breakfast nook.

ABC Carpet & Home Classic Rosewood Dining Table Brueton Dining Chairs

Here, the contemporary silhouette and leather-and-stainless-steel construction bring an updated feel to the mid-century-inspired table from ABC Carpet & Home. Add a minimalist or industrial-style chandelier to the pairing for a stunningly modern look.

Hickory Chair Mahogany Dining Table & Nancy Corzine Armchairs

For rooms with a more traditional feel, an antique-inspired pairing is just right. The painted wood frames of the chairs enhance the silhouette, without distracting from the handsome mahogany finish of the table.
