The Best Dining Room Furniture Set for Your Holiday Gathering

We don’t often think about the furniture in our dining room until it’s absolutely necessary to do so. The furniture is typically comfortable enough for us to enjoy a quick breakfast, or a dinner with the family. But, when it comes to hosting guests, it’s easy to second guess yourself, and your furniture. Thankfully, there are a few tips you can keep in mind. Whether you’re in the market for a new dining set, or you want to spruce up your own, take into account both timeless classics, and recent trends.

Traditions Never Fade

The holidays are all about family, warmth, and comfort. One way to provide that with dining room furniture is by focusing on something more traditional, vintage, rustic, etc. If you have an old dining set already, you might actually benefit from ‘roughing it up’ a bit more. The distressed look is not only in style right now, but it never goes out of style. Capitalize on a comforting dining set you already have by giving it a more rustic look. There are plenty of online tutorials and step-by-step guides that can help you give your furniture a welcoming farmhouse appeal.

Modern Comfort

People also tend to think about class and sophistication at the holidays. If you’re in the market for new dining room furniture, don’t be afraid to make a bold statement. Rich, warm colors will never go out of style. Oversized tables and chairs will make every meal feel like a special occasion. Clean, smooth lines will make the dining set comfortable enough to use all year long, even for a simple, casual meal.

Whatever you decide, know that dining room furniture should reflect your space and personality all the time. How you decorate and accent it for the holidays is also completely a personal choice. So, choose your modern flare, or timeless traditional look, and your friends and family will love it.

Marble: A Timeless Piece

fgh

Perhaps one of the hottest home design trends to make an appearance this year will be marble without a doubt! Design experts predict that marble will not only become an increasingly sought after material for countertops, flooring and backsplash, but there will be a surge in demand for household furniture and home decor. In fact, some of the staple furniture pieces will be buffetsoccasional tables and home decor. Let’s take a look at how the marble trend will affect these categories.

The buffet

As you know, the buffet compliments your diningroom, by storing your favorite china and displaying your family keepsakes and heirlooms. It adds depth to the room, all while offering extra storage space. When marble is mixed in the equation, you get a beautiful and timeless design. The popular marble buffet features a faux marble top, a light brown finish, open storage shelves, three draws and dark hardware to add a pop of color.

Bear in mind the same beauty for a contemporary tablelamp or floorstanding lamp. If you loved the picture you painted so far with the buffet, then you will surely find that adding this accessory to your occasional table, your desk or in a corner beside the sofa is a great way to emphasize luxury. Picture a beautiful arc-style design, an adjustable post, a brushed silvertone metal and a marble foot. The Asabi lamp is just what your need to have your room scream luxury.

Occasional tables

Last but not least, the Radilyn occasional tables will project elegance right in the center of your conversation space, as it will tie together your living room seating. Not to mention it will serve you well to rest refreshments for your guest! Even on days that they will stand alone, the focal point of your living room will embody a certain refinement.

Adding these pieces to your home is the perfect stylish solution to creating a touch of elegance. From white to grey and any shade in between, faux marble paired with either a wood byproduct or steel will capture much of the refinement seen in some of the most beautifully designed homes.

Living Room Sets: Mix & Match

The living room or family room is known to be the family’s favorite room to chat together and spend some quality time.  This room should combine a mix of warmth and comfort, in order to enable a family to be inclined to gather in this space. Style, comfort and quality all matter to pull off this setting.  In order to achieve this mood, one must select the appropriate pieces to blend together. Blending furniture pieces in a living room does not necessarily imply that they must be from the same collection. On the contrary, a good living room design is a mix of cohesive pieces that blend in color, style and texture. In fact, one might say that even some opposites work well together to create an eclectic mix.

Sofa:

The Azlyn sofa features a vintage casual style, and infuses a mixed media look in such an elegant manner. In this mixture, we have exposed feet in a wood finish, a nailhead trim and gorgeous tufted upholstery. The curvaceous rolled arms provide added character to the sofa. Despite the elegance of the piece, the warm earthy tones create an inviting atmosphere.

Chair(s):

The Kannerdy chair features elegant refinement and rugged good looks that blend beautifully with the selected sofa. The dramatic style of the turned feet and the Charles of London arms enhance the English style with this pairing. In addition, the muted neutral tones harmonize well together and create an opportunity to add little pops of color in the room. Lastly, depending on the dimensions of your room, for an optimal design, allow for two chairs facing the sofa.

Ottoman:

Finally, the Hindell Park ottoman features a vintage casual style with button tufting detail.  The soft upholstery brightens any room with its colorful and soothing pattern. You’ll enjoy the comfortable atmosphere set by this ottoman once you have your feet up!

Although these pieces are very different and unique in their own way, some key elements such as the similarities with the feet, the muted natural tones and elegant refinement make them mesh well together.

Bedroom Sets: Mix & Match

Bedroom Sets: Mix and Match:

Did you know that the average person spends 33% of their lifetime sleeping? This statistic is based on 8 hours of sleep per day. That being said, if you spend one third of your lifetime in yourbedroom, then why not make it into a beautiful retreat and comfortable haven? So how exactly are you supposed to achieve a look that reflects peace and tranquility? Opt for neutral tones and gorgeous natural materials. In fact, here are a few propositions to help paint you a picture!

Bed:

The Maribel B138 Panel Bed features a beautiful relaxed cottage design with an urban appeal. The details along the scalloped top and base are bathed in a rich black finish, to create an earthy aesthetic.  This is an exemplary piece of how to transform your bedroom décor into an inviting atmosphere.

Nightstand:

Who said that bedroom furniture needed to be matchy-matchy and from the same collection? Mixing furniture pieces from different collections can be just as delightful! The Charlowe B013-191 nightstand pairs beautifully with the panel bed, as it enhances the dark undertones found in the grain of the planks. The vintage charm of this piece, along with the distressing marks fit well with the casual cottage design of the bed.

Dresser:

Finally, who can forget a staple piece in the bedroom, the dresser! The Emerfielddresser features a chic farmhouse style which would work well from a country cottage to an urban city loft. The lovely two-tone finish and weatherworn appeal will add a bit of warmth to all the black hues paired together with all the pieces. In addition, the round metal hardware echoes the vintage-inspired look as seen on the nightstand.

As you can see, the edgy blend of these three pieces from separate collections is an argument well disputed – that random pieces can be put together to create a well-harmonized bedroom style.

Traditional Home Decor

Traditional Home Design:

Traditional furniture & home décor has thrived for so long and with reason! Although the traditional style is stale and outdated, a look that reflects the past preserves a sense of familiarity and comfort. Traditional deemed rooms emphasize formal arrangements which encourage conversation, with curvy furniture that avoids sharp angles and neutral colors that do not make a large statement. Instead, beauty is found in the finishing touches, such as molding and trims. If a piece is not timeless, then it is not graceful enough to fit in this type of décor! Here is a traditional home décor video to help you get started.

Organic Materials

Organic Materials

Nowadays the term organic has also made its way into interior design. So what exactly is meant by this so-called emerging design trend? Basically, anything made from natural materials can be considered “organic”. However, the trend goes beyond just using natural materials – entails a specific green lifestyle & design choice. In other words, there is more to the furniture, fabric & flooring in this type of home than just looking “natural”. They must be chemical-free. Some popular organic materials include hemp, reclaimed wood, sisal, natural stones and recycled glass. Let’s take a look at the top picks for your home;
Rugs:

 

Check out this braided beauty! The Dismuke rug is a handwoven jute and cotton rug. This weave features a tapestry of earth tones that is reminiscent of nature itself. The fact that it is handmade has a lesser impact on the environment, rather than if it was manufactured. Also, another benefit of using a natural rug is that you’ll avoid breathing the chemical particles that form when a synthetic rug is exposed to the sun.
Poufs:
The versatile pouf has been a favorite for quite some time. Round out your space with the casually hip Dilip pouf. This piece features a cable knit cover crafted of natural jute. Its feel-good texture makes it a versatile spare seat, ottoman or end table; the perfect all-in-one eye candy.
 
Wall Art:
Paint a picture of easy relaxation in your space with the Odus wallart. The weathered plank-style layout features natural and black undertones, making it a very cool understatement. This charming piece will surely deck your walls with knockout style!
Now that you have the facts about natural materials not only being a highly sought after trend, but also beneficial to your health, will you opt for this green lifestyle?

Raw White

Raw White:

Believe it or not, the all-white aesthetic has made the one of the top trends in 2017. It has become difficult to escape all-white homes and décor. Whether you love it or hate it, the effects of this trend are astounding which has caused quite the controversy. Long before the contemporary trend came up with its take on raw white, beautiful Greek, Moroccan and Scandinavian interiors utilized white walls for its sense of minimalism, and contrasted with colorful textiles and artwork. Now, raw white does not only reflect wall color, but a chalky or bone white quality seen in homeaccents. The organic and raw feel of these accents are great for balancing out a really vibrant space.

Vases:

A home accent that does raw white justice is definitely a beautiful white vase. The Kaemon vase has naturally flowing swirls that have a wonderful organic feel. You can also opt for a vase that says “minimal fuss” and gives maximum impact with a clean and simple shape. The Daemyn vase can wow on its own, with its simple cylindrical shape.

Picture Frames:

Picture frames are not only a way to treasure memories via a quality framework, but it’s also a means to add style and substances to the picture. The Baback frame features a beautiful organic white with ribbed detailing that brings out quite the snappy texture. Another elegant frame is the Kaelem, as its glazed ceramic surface is buzzing with a clean vibe that is worthy of the raw white principle.

White organic throws:

Finally, another accent to complete the raw white look in your home is a delightful throw that is reminiscent of a ribbed sweater knit. The Clarence throw has a chic and classic appeal features a thick fringe that is full of texture.

The all-white trend will remain beloved for years to come, as it has already been around for quite some time. What do you think about this trend?
