So I’m obesssing over how to do my dining room. My husband and I have diffeent tastes….sorta…well when we bought the house I basically provided all the furniture from when I lived alone, the style looks very natural/earthy/ecclectic, that wasn’t were I was going for but a lot of my stuff was given to me so that is what it ended up looking like. If my husband could have decoraed from scratch he would have done clean line/modern in black and white….as opposed to the browns that I mostly have.
So I suggested we sorta combine the styles and I start adding modern peices. So we purchased new lighting for where the dining will go
They look like this, except have 5 lights and are in a teired circle, each one lower then the next. We still don’t have it installed because we are putting the dining room where the original living area was, so wiring needs to be installed (thank goodness Father-In-Law is a electrician)
So the main peice we need in the room will be a table. I love wood, so modern peices like glass top is out of the question, and my hubby NEEDs a table that extends to seat more when we need to.
My orioginal idea was a harvest table top with leaves (extensions) in very dark wood finish
But after looking at real harvest tables, I think it looks a little too rustic.
So I saw LIVE EDGE tables and I feel in love, I think they are modern enough (well sort of artsy like) and I think if I could ever find just the top I could add a modern base, like so
(they are all unique…so this is just a idea).
The base (just an idea)
One idea I had was to get a really long live edge top, cut off the ends as leafs and add commecting peices to those ends so they can only be added when we need them ..but it could be pricey…so I am willing to forgoe the extensions (hubby doesn’t know lol)
My question is, do any of you bees have a live edge table (more specifically a dining table)? If so what was the general price you paid, and where do you live (helps to understand pricing)? How do you decorate it?
Do you think this vision for modern and natural is too much? How would you mix the 2?
