trending. dining in in style.

Ever since the middle ages, the concept of sitting down at a large table to consume your meals with friends and family has been a stable across the world. But as the need for such formal spaces to carry out an everyday occurrence dwindles, the contemporary use of the dining room becomes more playful. And although I can barely fit a two person dining table into my one bedroom apartment, I can’t help but constantly gawk over how creative people are getting with this trend of turning the uber traditional into the lighthearted modern.

As you can see above- from my pinterest finds- all across the map home dwellers are jumping on this trend and turning their established formal dining rooms into playful takes on the table & chair combo. The mixing of materials, shapes, and overall forms is what makes these spaces so fun and unique. And the fact that you’re taking a room that’s complete function is to bring people together and making it reflect your personal style, creates a more relaxed environment to consume meals and memories in. 

So with the holiday's quickly approaching, anyone who finds themselves in the market for dining room furniture, don't forget to just have fun with it! Not every chair has to match. And, honestly, dining sets (for the most part) are pretty hideous, so definitely stay away those. But all and all, just don't let this room stay so conventional, give yourself a colorful quirky moment that will leave your friends and family in awe this holiday season.
