Transitional style is nothing short of calming, welcoming and blended. The style itself is a harmonious blend of traditional design elements, like soft lines of wood on a dining table, or the tufted back of an upholstered dining chair, with the contemporary touches, like a chrome light fixture or solid weave rug. A Transitional dining space is neutral in color, but rich in texture and finishes.
This dining area is a great example of how to successfully play with proportions. Note how the slender silhouette of the dining chairs holds up to the more substantial table. This is due to the chairs black color which adds weight to their form and makes them feel balanced with the rest of the design.
We really enjoy how this space uses black and white in an impactful way while still balancing those bold colors with the calming gray-blue wall color and soft lighting. It's eye-catching but still inviting.
The circular shapes are key to making this eclectic breakfast nook feel so cohesive and eye-catching. From the rug to the table to the wall art, each circle creates a sense of pattern and harmony which feels as warm and inviting as sunshine.
If you have the space for it a credenza or sideboard can be a great way to anchor your dining room design. We really enjoy how the styling of the credenza in the space draws the eye to the sunflower shape mirror light a ray of light.
The tulip table is not only a design classic it's also a great way to make a small dining area practical and pretty. The circular table top makes extra space for chairs and this pedestal leg also makes more space. Prefect for a dining area for two or if you want more seating add a bench which you can bring over to the table when needed.
If you have a narrow base through space for your dining area you may want to try a bar style table like this one. The slender shape will save tons of space! Plus you can use this type of table as extra counter space for cooking prep.
This lovely dining area is a great example of how a circular dining table can create a sense of flow in a room. The absence of corners on the table actually makes more room for the cozy dining chairs and makes the space look larger, and more open.
