With fall around the corner, the season of entertaining is nearly upon us. And while showcasing your whole house through standing-room-only cocktail parties is always a great way to go, sometimes, you just want an intimate and semi-formal dinner with close friends and family. When it’s time to sit around the table, you’ll want a true mid mod dining room. So get started revamping your mid century dining space with these 7 furniture picks!
When building the perfect dining room, you need to start with the biggest piece of furniture, and unless you have a seriously incredible chandelier, that piece is going to be your table. If you’re looking to serve a lot of people, maximize your space (and elbow room) with a rectangular table, such as The Zoe.
You can’t have a dinner without a place to sit, so invest in a beautiful set of chairs. There are countless designs to choose from, but wood-framed chairs create the best formal atmosphere in your mid mod dining room. If you want the fun of plastic, molded chairs but the class of wood frames, try the Amish Dining Wood Armchair.
A beautiful chandelier can give your dining room a sense of mid century drama and formality. The Zanadoo Fixed Chandelier offers a fresh take on the playful sputnik style with eye-catching bronze and frosted glass bulbs.
If you need more light than what a single chandelier can offer, several well-placed sconces can really brighten the space up. The vertical orientation of this Nadia Sconce has a classy feel to them and will add to the bronze glow without stealing your chandelier’s thunder.
Whether it’s just for storing your rare Vernonware or serving up a buffet, a sideboard or credenza can give your dining room a lot of versatility. We love the texture and lines of the Tightrope 4 Door Cabinet.
When it comes to protecting your original wood floors or just balancing out the space, nothing works better than a great area rug. We love uncomplicated, repeating patterns in semi-neutral tones that don’t take themselves too seriously while also keeping you cozy. The Montgomery Handmade Wool Cream/Black Rug fits the bill and will ensure that your fine mid mod dining room furniture won’t be overwhelmed!
Finally, the right piece of art can be a great conversation starter, so don’t neglect your walls. The breezeblock inspired artwork Circles and Shadows and Squares, Oh My! by Erich Meager will add texture and an organic feel to warm up your walls and relax your guests.
