How To: Get A Unique Eating Space

Switch Up Seating

If you are looking for an easy way to wow your guest and vamp up your eating area listen up. Here is the best way to update your space. Mix up the seating! Yes, I know first instinct probably tells you, "Wait, visually pleasing design means everything is uniformed & matching" No! that isn't always the way to accomplish fantastic design. Successful design is about incorporating a multitude of elements that support each other in the overall design. Design is about approaching each individuals likes/needs (which makes each project unique) by using fabulous fabrics, patterns, and textures. Your homes design should fit to YOUR lifestyle. In order to be dazzling one must be different.

This eating area is a perfect example of unconventional. This visually interesting set up not only offers a spectacular design aspect, but it creates more functionality in the space. With the benches on either side you can much easier squeeze more friends around the table then with the typical accent chairs. Plus, who likes dragging in chairs from other rooms every time you need more seating? Why not have the perfect set up all the time while getting a dramatic feel..

Putting it together:
1. Cielo Loveseat from CB2

2. Bench, in wood {with custom pad in desired fabric} or upholstered from PB

3. End Chairs, Strasbourg Chair or Camille Tufted Chair from Ballard

Alright you're ready- go tackle your eating area with a game plan of incorporating mixed seating!
