Latest Dining Room Ideas

What’s Hot for the Home in June 

Although some designers have shied away from decorating a formal dining room in recent years (in favor of additional sitting areas or bar rooms), there is something comforting about this area of the home. It’s a place to connect with loved ones and enjoy meals that are both elevated and relaxed; therefore, we’ve rounded up five stellar set-ups that recently caught our eye. 

Perfect Pairing 

Dining Room Ideas - Artefacto

A marriage of wood and stone, Artefacto’s Eclipse dining table is a beautifully unique choice for your home. Its oval shape lends itself to greater flexibility in terms of seating options, and integrates seamlessly into any type of room. We like it paired with the brand’s Carrie dining chairs, avail- able with a matching wood back or the upholstery of your choice. Retail: from $15,342 for the table and from $2,238 per chair. Artefacto, 101 South Dixie Highway, 305-774-0004,

A La Modo 

Dining Room

A staple on Ponce de Leon Boulevard, Modo Furniture is a go-to destination for the latest introductions from a wide variety of lines. Two recent styles available at the Gables showroom are the Bridge dining table, shown here, along with the Margot dining chairs. Retail prices available upon request. Modo Furniture, 4214 Ponce de Leon Blvd., 305-567-2970,

Dinner Party 

An ideal feature for the consummate entertainer, the Milano dining table from the Danish furnishing outpost BoConcept includes a hidden extension leaf. The matte white lacquered tabletop, shown, is beautiful with the brand’s Princeton dining chairs, which are both sleek and incredibly comfortable (trust us, we’ve sat in them). Retail: from $2,549 for the table and from $489 per chair. BoConcept, 342 San Lorenzo Ave. #1110, 305-350-1941,

Traditional Yet Trendy 

Building on the perennial beauty of clean lines and a balanced combination of materials, Bernhardt’s Foundations line of furnishings is both elegant and modern with a rustic twist. At 78 inches wide, the collection’s dining table, which features cerused acacia wood set atop stainless steel legs, could function as a kitchen table in a larger home, or as a formal dining table in a condo or apartment. Retail: $2,645. Decor House Furniture, 4119 Ponce de Leon Blvd., 305-448-6200,

Taking Flight

The Italian furnishings house B&B Italia is heralded for its architecturally-inspired and innovative designs. In the featured image, the Oskar table, named for the modernist icon Oscar Niemeyer is paired with the Papilio Shell chairs, the back of which evoke the wings of a butterfly preparing to take flight.
