Scandinavian designers are famous for their minimalism and appreciation of simplicity and functionality. They strip the designs to their basics and they manage to capture style in a very pure form. When it comes to furniture, Nordic designs are easy to distinguish. For example, if you see a table without any unnecessary details or purely ornamental elements you can be almost certain it’s a creation of Scandinavian designers.
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.
Sometimes functionality is key. We love how they fit a snazzy dining room table right inside their breakfast nook. They used the window seat as well as some other surprising chairs to finish off the table and the space.
Looking closely at some modern luxury dining rooms, it’s possible to identify small Baroque details that highlight the space. Here, the color palette is neutral and features an unadorned tabletop. Instead, one modern strip of inlay encircles the table on the edge. Curvy, tall-backed dining chairs feature an upholstered back with piping and the front is done in a modern velvet that has an animalistic monochrome pattern. A modern china cabinet is totally modern, but the drapes are a lovely silk, the fabric used in Baroque style rooms.
