Time for a dining room update? We had lots of dining room trends we loved in 2019, and luckily, most of them are here to stay! But we’ve tracked down some of the latest dining room trends to try for 2020 – and they work for dining spaces big and small (apartment dwellers, rejoice!) as well as a casual or formal dining room. Read on to learn more about current dining room trends.
Mixing Dining Chairs
The latest trends in dining table sets is mismatching chairs. This has been a favorite dining room design trend of ours for a long time. We’re starting to think it’s never going away, and that’s fine with us! Having different dining chairs around the table lets you get really creative. The best way to achieve the mixed dining chair look is to either stick to a similar color palette, style, silhouette, or just go all out and pick chairs you love — just make sure they’re the same height!
Modern + Traditional
You can combine styles easily with your dining room furniture and lighting fixtures. A modern dining room can have classic and traditional elements, just like a traditional dining room can have some sleek, contemporary accents. An easy way to achieve this look is with a traditional or rustic dining table with modern chairs or a mid-century modern table with more timeless, vintage-inspired chairs.
Eclectic = interesting and SO fun! Mixing styles is one of our favorite things about interior design. The dining area is where you can get super creative with pairings, whether it’s different chairs, decor, contrasting colors, and juxtaposing styles. Taking two styles that are opposite of each other (in this case, rustic or industrial mixed with glam) is interesting and really fun to do! Try rough-hewn chairs or a table with some elegant metallics and art deco-inspired elements thrown in.
Unique Lighting Fixtures
When it comes to lighting trends, think wicker lighting, avant-garde shapes, asymmetrical designs, and off-kilter textures. A pendant light or chandelier is like a great accessory for your dining room — it can help tie the room together and add that extra something-something.
Ornate Dining Tables
Why should dining chairs have all the fun? Try a cutout pedestal or mixed material table that really makes a stylish statement. This allows the to be the of the your and you can keep the and more simple, if you want.
We’re seeing interior designers and influencers having fun with wallpaper all over the home (not just the dining room) in 2019 and into 2020. Whether you go soft or bold, you’re sure to see an impact. And with peel-off options available, it’s easier than ever to utilize wallpaper in your space.
