Another example of using just a few Baroque or rococo details to elevate a luxury dining room is this one, which puts the focus on tassels. The large chandelier is the obvious focal point, and while the overall look is not ornate, the dominant feature are the hefty tassels dangling from each individual lamp. A part of the typical lambrequin motif, the tassel was an important element in the Baroque era.
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.
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.
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.
