Designer and homeowner Kerry Delrose didn't want a formal dining room, so he skirted the table and uses it for buffets.
Living Room and Dining Room in One
Designed by Andrew Halliday and David Greer, the living and dining areas are combined in this 550-square-foot room, typical of new condo construction. The curtains are one of the few patterned fabrics in the apartment. Dining chairs by Dualoy covered in perforated leather.
French-Country Dining Room
Designed by Cathy Kincaid, this dining room takes a cue from an old French farmhouse, with a beautiful French Directoire chandelier as the focal point
Dining Room by Barry Dixon
The dining room of this Maryland house is a textbook Barry Dixon design with naturalistic textures and shapes. Niermann Weeks Avignon chandelier; Swaim dining chairs in Bergamo's Siegfried fabric; Barcelona table by Panache Designs.
Michael Taylor's Style
The dining room designed by Michael Taylor features wallpaper that is a copy of an 18th-century chinoiserie original. Taylor had the baseboards faux-grained and waxed to look like pale oak
Inspired by Albert Hadley
Hand-painted 19th-century wallpaper mounted as a screen wraps around Carol Curtis's Atlanta dining area, which she designed with her daughter, Sarah Norwood. The zebra rug is a nod to Albert Hadley, one of Curtis and Norwood's favorite designers.
Modern Dining Room
Designed by Betsy Burnham, this modern dining room features an eccentric yet artful collection of Nymphenburg porcelain figures. The upholstered chairs are from Artistic Frame
