Today we are going through the five fundamental steps you need to follow in order to get your own mid-century dining room!
Although it seems like something easy to get done, you might want to be cautious, because the line between mid-century and scandinavian is getting thiner, and thiner. Luckily, we have put together five easy steps on how to get a mid-century dining room with Essential Home!
1. Choose the perfect mid-century table
If you are going for a new dining room decor, start with the essentials. Get a mid-century dining table that will set the tone for the whole room. You can go with an authentic 1950’s teak table, or opt for something a little bit more out of the box. Our suggestion is this marble-based table with a retro mirrored top by Essential Home.
2. Pair it up with a few mid-century dining chairs
As we keep tackling the essentials you need for your new dining room, we need to talk about dining chairs. If you are going for the perfect mid-century modern dining set, pair your new dining table with a few mid-century dining chairs. If you’re choosing the marble-based table we have shown you above, don’t overpower your decor, and go with a minimalist design for your chairs, like these classic mid-century chairs by Essential Home!
Tip: If you can’t find any mid-century chairs that strike your liking, you can also do with Danish dining chairs!
3. Add a comfy accent
Make your dining room look and feel comfortable. The best way to create that feeling is using a rug that hugs your dining table and chairs. Keeping with mid-century vibe, go for geometric patterns and warm colors such as tangerine, and scarlet red. You can also go for colder tones, but keep them a little bit faded. Our favorite color suggestions include avocado green, sherbet blue and beige. This round carpet by Essential Home ticks pretty much all of our marks!
4. Make room for storage
You will want to store a couple of things in your dining room, that is for sure. Your best chinas should be stored in a worthy sideboard, that is why we have chosen Essential Home’s most iconic credenza to share with you. Monocles sideboard can be customized with any finish, so whether you want it in gold plated brass, or nickel finished brass, you will get it your way.
5. Finally… light it up!
Finally, get some light in your dining room! Choosing the right light, and the perfect fixture to reflect your design’s mood might not be easy. We suggest you go with a Sputnik-styled mid-century chandelier, as this will help you create an authentic 1950/1960’s look in your dining room. Check out our suggestions, Norah chandelier by DelightFULL.
