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.
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.
