Interestingly the chandelier features Baroque curving arcs that are made from flat, smoky glass. The traditional leafy motif is rendered modern in the leaf-shaped drops that embellish the bottom and are mixed with feminine beads in a nod to the rococo.
Those who prefer a modest amount of embellishment and generally unadorned walls can still incorporate Baroque or rococo elements in a luxury dining room. This room is dominated by the light color palette, featuring neutral gray walls and pale wood furniture. A marquetry dining table is the focal point, enhanced with Baroque detailing. The legs of the table feature a classic Baroque motif called the lambrequin, which is a swag of cloth accompanied by tassels. The accompanying dining chairs have a more angular shape, which is not typically Baroque or rococo, but they are embellished with carvings on the legs, a modest scroll shape forming the top of the chair back, and fabric tassels at the legs.
If you think of an elegant dinner table, you will think immediately of a impressive solid wood table and some elegant chairs which will make of your dinner area a great place where you can welcome your guests. These days I have visited an aunt of mine and I loved to sit in her kitchen where she has a comfortable banquette.
Infusing a contemporary luxury dining room with Baroque and rococo features creates a very different look with sumptuous feel. This space adeptly mixes the two styles. The inlaid table has a black base, whose shaped legs and modestly scrolled lower edge have painted highlights. The look is modern with a nod to Baroque style gilding, here done in silver. The tall-backed dining chairs are upholstered in a modern sage velvet and sport quite backs, rather than the characteristic tufting.
