Same chairs, different colors. Take a basic set of matching wooden chairs and put your own stamp on them by painting each one a different hue. The trick here is to choose colors that have the same value (lightness or darkness), like all pastels, all midtones or all bright.
Massive paper lantern. Suspended over the table like a full moon, the paper lantern is on a grand scale, making this dining space so impressive. And while an authentic Noguchi paper lantern is stunning, there are paper lanterns available at all prices and in all sizes.
Settle on a shape that will work in most rooms. Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that have square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating. If you buy a six‐seater, eight can usually be accommodated at a pinch – the larger the diameter, the more people can be seated. On the other hand, rectangular tables have limited seating spots due to the position of the table legs and because only one person can be seated at each end. However, if you choose a rectangular table with leaves, the table can be extended to accommodate extra guests whenever an event is planned, such as for a family Christmas or birthday party.
