Dining room

December 24, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I am continuing to hunt for dining set.Originaly I was gonna modify existing one but I realized I had it for 17 years and it is time to move on. I decided to go with Parson chairs, all fabric.Here is what I like. Should I match wood color with my floors and entertainment unit or not?I am afraid it would be too much of walnut/chestnut. I know I keep asking about this room but I don't want to make mistake.These sets are around 4000.I can pick any fabric and wood color I want .

Your own room didn't post in an enlarging format - can you try again so it blows up to a viewable size.

I would recommend that you not try and match the table with the floors or the entertainment center. This will allow the dining area it's own "look and feel", visually differentiating it from adjoining spaces. One thing you might consider doing is matching the wood species or at the very least choose a species with a similar grain so you don't have a lot of competing textures.

I like pic #3 and you could use the pop of red to liven up the space.

I wouldn't match. Also, I like options 1# and 3# but not 2#. Happy Holidays!

I love option 1. I want it. the whole room is great in that picture. I would definitely hang your tv on the wall and get rid of that entertainment unit. Your other stuff looks pretty modern and you will be amazed how much more open and light and modern the room will feel once you remove that heavy older looking large piece. That combined with option 1 will look amazing. Obviously option 2 has the same finish as your coffee table but it looks more casual to me.

Please do not match to the things you listed. Let the table stand on it's own. Everything getting to matchy looks bad. You could do a color I had a Chinese Cinnabar colored table that I loved. Red, White and Black always look good too.

I wish I could convince my husband to get rid of it,but it was pretty expensive . It worked with our previous sofas.I might try to sell it but it is hard.
@gseattle Dining set shown is Canadian made not sure of manufacturer name .I did not buy it yet ,it is kind of expensive .I will check in different stores, maybe they can give me better price.

Check out Room and Board. We just got a new store here in Seattle and I went to check the quality.. It seems very good and they can do tables by the inch which is what I want to do. They have Parsons tables with metal legs which are very nice. Check them online.

I like #1. But i would remove the entertainment center and add a buffet/side table(nothing too large). Defetily wouldnt put a tv in the dining room. Tvs in dining rooms are so wrong

@ Metro interiors. Tv is not in the dining room,it is in livingroom. Living-Dining are L-Shaped.

You were right when you asked for advice. Still, you have your own taste, so choose a dining set that you like. Look here http://www.furniturenyc.net/dining-sets.html

I really like set number one. Set number two is very limiting and trendy. If set number one comes in a round version I would get that. Round tables are great because the whole table can share a conversation. Oval and long rectangular tables end up with many little conversations going on. We have a round table that goes from 8 to 12 in the round and love it. I try to specify a round table for all my clients when they fit in the room. It is hard to add seats at the square table. One way to save money is to buy the upholstered parsons chairs at a discount type place and spend the money on the table and buffet. Yes the TV piece is the elephant in the room. Just work around it for now and get what you want for the dining room. The entertainment center will eventually move on. At our new house we brought with us a fabulous large 18th C. armoire which holds our TV. It really needs to go and will do so eventually when I get to doing the room it is in over. In the mean time I am buying the things that I like for the room regardless of the armoire. Whatever you do try to buy furniture that is timeless so that you wont have the same problem you are having with the entertainment center.

I just realized that my cat would destroy Parson chairs,she likes to scratch back of the fabric chairs :(
Would this look ok? I've found it on Craigslist. Any other suggestions?
