It may not be called the “living room,” but the dining room is truly a space where life takes place. A frequently-used and well-loved area, today’s dining room is a hub for everything from mealtime memory making, family gatherings, and friendly dinner parties to work projects or late night homework sessions. Your dining room should be a comfortable, inviting, practical place, but it should also be a well-appointed space filled with pieces that suit your personal style.

How to curate your contemporary dining room
Choose a modern dining table that complements your style and your space. You’ll want to carefully consider the size of your dining room, the number of people you want to fit around the table, the shape that appeals to you and makes sense in your room, and the material that would work best for your lifestyle. Your dining table is the most important piece of furniture in your dining room (and, arguably, your entire home), so choosing the perfect one might seem a little overwhelming. For help choosing the right dining table, take a look at our how-to guide.
Incorporate chairs that complement your dining table, or make an eclectic statement with a whole different style of seating. Think about the type (side or arm chair), style, material, and color of chairs that you’d like for your dining room. Your chairs should be a stylish, beautiful and comfortable place to enjoy meals and memories.
For seating around your island, bar, or counter-height table, incorporate modern bar or counter stools. Consider the features and style that appeal to you, the material that suits your lifestyle, and the color that works best in your space. Contemporary stools are an unmissable addition to your modern dining room or kitchen.
Dining benches are a versatile and accommodating seating option. They can be used in your dining room, but they can also be moved around the house to meet other seating needs. Before choosing a dining bench, you’ll want to weigh your options - size, color, style, features, and material - to ensure that you select the bench that works best for you. A modern dining bench is a surprisingly useful and decorative addition to the dining room.
Choose a modern buffet, credenza, or sideboard to round out the furniture in your dining room. With ample storage and an abundance of decorating potential, these functional and chic cabinets make the perfect addition to your space.
Completing your modern dining room
After you’ve anchored your room with a dining table, chairs and/or a bench, a sideboard, and other furniture, it’s time to pull the space together. With the right lighting and decor, you can create an elevated, layered, and one-of-a-kind look. Create an eclectic environment by combining mid-century modern pieces with farmhouse elements, stick with Scandinavian designs for a clean, simple, and clutter-free setting, or incorporate traditional pieces to mix timeless charm with modern appeal. With the selection of lighting, decor, tabletop adornments, and other furniture and accents available at 2Modern, the dining room will quickly become your favorite room in the house.
