This photo inspired a post on AT:NY about mixing and matching Wegner chairs - a classic look that avoids being staid.
The dark table in the center of the room anchors the light woods and gray floors surrounding it.
In an eat-in kitchen, a smaller table can be combined with a couple of chairs and stools. It's a flexible, casual arrangement that works well in combination kitchen/dining/living areas.
Exposed brick + white table + birch chairs = a very airy arrangement that works well in a loft.
Just by adding one large-scale piece of artwork leaning up against the wall, the dining area feels more relaxed.
Using a bench on one side of the table extends your seating options, and allows you to fit more people for a dinner party.
This arrangement shows that you don't need a table to have a nice eating area. The Danish Modern stools warm up this kitchen island and create a welcoming spot for meals. For more from Bulthaup, click here.
