Happy Friday! A friend asked me to share some non-traditional round dining table inspiration, which proved to be a little more complicated than it seems. I think you can use a traditional wooden table in a modern setting and make it updated and fresh with chic chairs and a sleek light fixture (see yesterday’s post). While trends are leaning towards more exposed wood, even painting a table a dark color could add to the ambience.
Upon delving deeper, it is evident that using glass and metal elements can really give a fresh and more open feel to a dining space. In fact, a glass table with an interesting brass base may be the best setting to add sophisticated chairs and a dramatic fixture. Hopefully these images will bring about more round table suggestions. If you know a round table image you love, feel free to send it my way!
Have a fabulous weekend! XO Christina
Jean Louis Deniot uses a metal base and chic wood to make a phenomenal dining room. The art and the light fixture add to the ambience. Notice the rug under the table, so often they are left out of dining rooms. Via AD

Hard to see this dining table, but I love the shiny base and glass top.
I love the look of this Silverado table from CB2.
