……………….. DESIGN AND INSPIRATION
Dining Rooms are your Stage, your opportunity to kick it up a notch and add some Drama to your eating experience. Whether you’re casual or formal or something in between, your dining room is the place to have fun and express yourself.
It all begins with the furniture….then the accessories, dishes etc. Here are some tables and chairs from Woodcraft which I’ve selected to help identify your style and personal expression. The company was created Over thirty years ago, with a straightforward name and a simple philosophy. Handcrafted, fairly priced, proudly Canadian made to order. I appreciate their attention to detail , customer service and continuing dedication to maintaining traditional principles of quality furniture production. Here are 5 looks from Woodcraft which you can identify yourself with, to narrow down what your Dining Style is…
1. Modern Contemporary: Sophisicated, uncomplicated and glamorous. This look is not inexpensive, it requires the ‘less is more’ principle with items which are quality fit and finish.
2.Transitional : This look takes the Traditional elements and simplifies them by eliminating the details…almost like squinting your eyes at a traditional piece and only seeing the outline.
3. City Rustic: The trend of taking industrial, elements and mixing them with country elements is a hot trend which is perfect for the sophisticated casual Urban Dweller. Iron details , hand made finishes with some distressing give this look its signature.
4. Country Rustic: This is a casual look, perfect for Cottage or City home…durable and family friendly. Baskets and oil rubbed bronze finishes suit this look.
5. New Traditional: Not your Grandma’s Traditional…the New Traditional is elegant and timeless. Traditional always works and always suits. All you have to do is change the accessories, fabrics and other elements around this look in order to make it appropriate for it’s time.
So there it is…you can truly express yourself in your dining room…take the opportunity to set the stage for your hosting duties and make it an environment which will compliment your home and your lifestyle.
