Need help with finishing touches dining/ seating area

Bobbie SDecember 11, 2012
So finally chose my dining room table and dining chairs. Also chose my chairs for seating area. I need help with a rug for 2 chairs and a small table to complete seating area. Here are the pics. Dining gas six chairs. Third pic is space for both. Dining close to windows. 4th pic for seating area.

I would change the areas and put the dining table closer to your bar. The niche is nice with the light and it needs something important in there. Put the two chairs in the alcove. You may have to reposition the chandelier to center over the table.

The chairs are a lovely color and I would put them with this rug running it horizontally in the alcove with a chair on either side of the door. Each chair gets a table and light. Panels on the windows to compliment the rug. You could purchase inexpensive panels like these and buy a complimentary color ribbon and trim the edges.

Hi, Czone! We did a quick search of our area rugs by color in the tan/ivory category (http://www.atgstores.com/area-rugs_610.html?option0=OptionA=265691~Value&page=1) and came up with a few other suggestions based on the color of your chairs and floor, and the hint of red we found in your living space (vase, seat cushions). We hope this helps give you some ideas and wish you luck!

So I found a piece of art for this room great colors can do a lot with it. And a copper ( metal) side table a little different. What do you think?

Love the chairs! Yes to the copper drum, no to the art. Get an authentic piece of art off etsy or from a local artist.

For the Rug, I would like to see something like this for you...

I'm so glad those chairs work for you. They look so comfortable!

Those copper drum side tables are a great choice, too.

Not sure about those pillows - right shape and size - but the color just seems too - something....

Of the 4 rugs that ATGStores.com show, I like the one on the bottom right - Creamy background and almost slim, curved tendrils of flowers and leaves scattered lightly - sort of just a wispy hint of an oriental design.

Like the artwork, especially with those chairs - nice choice.

Are the backs of the pillows just a creamy color with that rust/red piping? If so, try just turning the pillows over and see how the simpler design looks.

Okay - that's boring, but better.

I think there is just too much pattern with the flowers. Can you return the pillows?

This might be a place where you could use the charcoal-y black that I see on the corner of the art piece - and I know you've wanted to use it elsewhere. Maybe keep an eye out for something like this - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Faux-Suede-Decorative-Lumbar-or-Square-Throw-Pillow-/261004500717?pt=Decorative_Pillows&var=560110237578&hash=item3cc5149eed you can set it for "12 x 18 Lumbar Pillow" and they are on sale, 2 for $16.79 with free shipping.

Almost everything I do is solid. I'm a hair stylist everything BLACK!

So I thought hmm let me get some color in my life. Maybe a little too much.

Actually you ARE getting color in your life - just big blocks rather than little bits - except for the art which is lots of bits of color.

Rather than black, how about any of the reds in the art?

Just browsing - do any of these look like they'd work?

including red, there are lots of colors here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-throw-Pillow-P-Kaufman-basket-weave-cotton-20-x-12-lumbar-/230851749137?pt=Decorative_Pillows&hash=item35bfd62511

These are lush, but they're square, and silk - but still gorgeous - http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-THAI-SILK-Throw-cushion-pillow-case-cover-GREEN-/370683438287?_trksid=p2045573.m2102&_trkparms=aid%3D555001%26algo%3DPW.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D146%26meid%3D4233484415037138459%26pid%3D100034%26prg%3D1079%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D261141225411%26

Looking forward to the next update. Have fun shopping!
