Go Formal Anywhere
Just because your dining area is in the kitchen doesn’t mean you are limited in your furniture choices. A small formal round table and chinoiserie chairs are a great foil to the more utilitarian surroundings.
Get Comfortable with Seating
Anchor the ends of a dining area with two larger wing chairs. The more substantial upholstered pieces break up a line of traditional seating and ground the sides of the room. You can layer with small decorative pillows or a few throws to add color and texture.
Make Your Table Moonlight
If space is limited, create a dining space that can work in other ways when you’re not enjoying a meal. A round design with two armchairs can function as a desk, a reading area, and a display space for favorite objets when the kitchen closes.
