Ideas for a not so new dining table

Ideas for a not so formal dining room

On a daily basis, I brainstorm and do research for the architecture and interior design projects that I am working on. So many inspirational images of beautiful spaces come across my screen during this time that I have decided to share some of my finds from time to time on the blog.

After recently moving to a new apartment, I decided to update our dining room table, which was a little old-fashioned for my taste. It is a solid wood table that reflects an art deco/art nouveau style. I decided to get rid of the chairs and replace them with some new ones. My idea is to pair the aged wood table with some modern leather chairs with metal legs, and as my apartment is not that big, I would add two stools on the ends to give more room to the space. Similar to the black and blue picture from the CB2 catalogue (shown on the top right), perhaps with deep orange or red stools, that would match better with my living room decor.

Even if you are not changing your dining sitting, I hope you find my inspirational images useful. The idea of combining old furniture pieces with new ones can really update any space.
