24 Dining Room Ceiling Lighting Rug Floors Design Photos And Ideas

By saving money on her dining table, which is a piece of walnut countertop from IKEA, Morrison was able to budget for splurges like a bespoke, pink velvet sofa from Anthropologie. The artwork is by her brother, who also happens to be her roommate.
This result is an energy-efficient, eco-friendly building that has a minimal impact on the environment.
The new kitchen-living area is spanned by a 25-foot steel beam.
The owners chose to keep some of the original Eichler elements in the revamp, including the stained tongue-and-groove redwood ceiling decking and the luan wall paneling. However, the luan paneling has been lightly sanded, cleaned, and re-stained.
Jens Martin Skibsted salvaged an 1890s house just outside of Copenhagen, reworking it with architect Jürgen Mayer H. The structure is a retreat for Jens, his wife, Naomi, and their children. The dining table was designed by him to accommodate 18; the legs were produced by HAY, as were the Shanghay molded plywood chairs. “The house has so many things,” explains Jens. “Every corner has a story.”
Because the property slopes to the rear, the home’s eastern view is of treetops right outside. In the dining nook, Executive Armchairs by Eero Saarinen join a Warren Platner table beneath a Serge Mouille ceiling light. A patterned rug by AVO rests on the terrazzo tile floor.
Lighting was heavily considered when designing the space, from the natural light at dusk when the lounge opens to the interior lighting to transition into night.
The home's industrial look is softened by vintage elements throughout and curtains.
High ceilings, exposed brick walls, and refinished wood floors now coexist with modern interventions, such as the stairwell composed of sapele, glass, and steel, and custom maple built-ins in the cozy library lounge. Time to pick up a copy of The House on Mango Street and tuck in.

When you visit The Distillery, you’ll find GinTonica on the first floor, a Spanish-inspired bar and kitchen that celebrates Spain’s connection to juniper.

With its timber rafters and expanses of glass, the house contrasts with its more conventional neighbors. To keep the focus on the views, Anna opted for minimal furnishings. The final design is the result of many imagined interiors, she explains: “I dreamt about this house for some time—then I saw it in real life.” In the dining area, a pair of IKEA Hektar pendants hangs over a table designed by Anna’s employees as a gift. The chairs are from European home improvement store Obi; the rug is vintage.
