This weekend I went over to my friend's house to help her with her dining room. She just moved and is starting from scratch. She wants to be practical (as she has two very young children) and stick with a dining room table that will weather the storm, accommodate a large party of guests and is fairly traditional. She has yet to officially define her style. How many of us can relate to this? And, until she does, she just wants a practical room that will last a couple of years.
So, let's introduce the wooden turned leg dining table. A look she likes. Here, are some inspiration pictures:
An espresso stained table matched with simple white side chairs. The varying shades of wood create depth and interest throughout the room.
A fellow blogger's breakfast area. A farm table paired with her dining room chairs. Love the citrine and gray color combination - so fresh and clean.
My friend is considering an unfinished table where she can pick the stain of her choice. Here, is an example of a honey stained table with white Gustavian like dining chairs. The look is casual, but is dressed up with a crystal chandelier and silver accents.
Another honey stained table matched with rattan wicker chairs to create a natural and warm look. I like the addition of the horizontal curtains that add a modern touch.
An espresso stained table paired with slipcovered side chairs. She is not a fan of slipcovered chairs, but I only show this for the table.
A sophisticated room touched with a hint of subtlety.
A different turned leg table - formal and classic in design.
So, do you have a turned leg table and how is it used in your design?
