This traditional dining room features a spectacular crystal chandelier, but all the furnishings are also adorned with details that are characteristic of baroque style. Scrolls and foliage are used as ornamentation on the backs of the chairs, table edges and feet, as well as on the sideboard and buffet. The shapes of the dining chairs are reminiscent of baroque style, with the slightly curved front legs and flamboyant detailing at the head of the chair. In addition, the elegant silk upholstery is of the style used in the Rococo period.
Another hallmark of Baroque era interiors was marquetry of the type that is featured on this stunning round dining table. This era fueled the rise of great furniture designers and cabinet-makers, who were leading artists in the field of inlaying ebony wood with tortoise shell, brass and other metals. You don’t need many pieces of marquetry to make a statement and here, the table tales center stage under the opulent, but slightly modern crystal chandelier. The characteristics of the period are carried through the room with the unadorned wall panels, embellished buffet and damask upholstered chairs.
As for the furniture, there are some materials that tend to be more modern than others. For example, a glass dining table will seem like a perfect choice for this space. It has the minimalism specific to modern furniture and its lack of color makes it stand out with its pure simplicity. Opt for matching chairs and you’ll get a very beautiful dining area. Other materials such as wood or marble can be beautiful as well. It all depends on the design.
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.
