One of my favorite trends right now is the rustic farmhouse dining table, albeit with a modern twist. The key to pulling this look off is a sculptural pendant light (preferably metal) and contrasting modern chairs. Throw a woven rug underneath for color and texture, or even go the extra length with sheepskin seat covers. Talk about cozy.

My personal favorite; the modern windsor chairs and industrial pendant look so beautiful against the pale blue wall.

Add a more eclectic feel by using the same chair in different colors, or different chairs painted in similar hues.
I want to bury my face on those chairs!
One of my all-time favorite bloggers, Dana from House*Tweaking uses tulip and wishbone chairs, which are connected by the tulips’ brown seat covers.
And another way to go–monochrome! Choose similar neutrals in a variety of textures–wood, metal, wool, etc.

I personally have my eye on the table from LMF Furniture. If we ever have a house with a dining room, I’ll be purchasing that for our kitchen eating area and moving my current table out.
