How to Style a Modern Dining Room

If you're looking to style a modern dining room there are many elements you'll want to consider. The first will be to define your modern style. Are you going for an eclectic contemporary space? A minimalist neutral modern room? How about mid-century modern?


To help style your space you'll want to select your dining set. A glass table with a contrasting base pairs wonderfully with classic chairs while a walnut table is gorgeous with a lighter leather seating option. Or, the timeless tulip table is a perfect base for bright statement chairs.


Once you've selected your dining set, you'll want to consider lighting. In modern rooms a statement making pendant light is always a great option. A classic Nelson pendant is timeless and stylish without taking too much attention away from the space or to add wow factor to a room, a geometric pendant is modern and beautiful.

Every room needs artwork and the dining room is no exception. Typography, pop art and posters are all popular modern choices that add color and interest to a room and can be a great way to showcase your personality.

Lastly, you'll want to finish the space with smaller furniture pieces, plants and accessories. A clean lined contemporary cabinet can not only provide hidden storage but is also the perfect place to showcase modern accessories. Finish the space with the modern go-to pant, the fiddle leaf fig and your gorgeous modern dining room is complete!
