Painting of two pieces of fruit hanging from a branch with textured abstract background. Primary colors in this artwork include: Orange, Dark Gray, Gray. This proprietary canvas provides a classic and distinctive texture, while archival UV protectant inks make it scratch and fade resistant. The fabric base is flexible to support tight corners. The finished canvas print is mounted on a sturdy yet lightweight board to protect against warping, overstretching, or loose, sagging prints. It is then...
The table and chairs act as the focal point of your dining room, but show the rest of your space some love, too.

Covered my grandmothers 4 dining room chairs perfectly! Great fit and updated a 60 year old family dining room set. Will need to line the the back of chairs because when the light hits the chair you can see through the fabric, but that is easy fix! Love them! Was totally surprised. (the 2 end chairs have arms, so bought set of 6, and will cut the fabric of the 2 extra covers and cover the bottom insert so those chairs will "match")
In this dining room designed by Charles Spada, Boiserie paneling frames a collection of Creil plates. Creil dishware and English dining table, all Antiques on 5. The candelabra, creamware tureen, silver cups as vases, lantern, lamps, and grandfather clock are all antiques. The antique French chairs are upholstered in leather. The curtains are a Marvic Textiles cotton.
Now let’s get started.  This is the view standing in the foyer looking into our dining room.  I love the large window, it brings in a lot of natural light.  I designed the curtains to enhance the middle crescent.  I placed a stationary panel to each side of the window on a decorative drapery rod.   I didn’t want to hide the window with drapes or heavy curtains.

Whether hung side by side or split up to double the decor around your abode, this two-piece framed print set is always sure to draw the eye. Showcasing two different, but coordinating, painted scenes with pots filled with blooming florals, each showcases subdued neutral hues of green, brown and beige. Made in North America, this pair is printed on paper, then highlighted by a 23'' H x 11'' W x 0.75'' D frame.
Sticking to a simple color palette allowed designer Phoebe Howard to play with patterns in this Palm Beach dining room. The wallcovering, inspired by a 16th century ottoman bedcover, is by Katie Leede & Company. The whitewashed fretwork dining chairs from Dennis & Leen, along with the tole palm tree and planter from Maitland-Smith and the striped rug, are nods to the nearby beach.
Turn an empty entryway wall or spare space over your sofa into a decorative display with this eye-catching canvas print. Showcasing a colorful scene of a seaside kitchen, it features illustrations of wine, produce, and a vase of vibrant blooms in hues of pink, orange, and blue. Made in the USA, this piece is printed on canvas and wrapped around a rectangular frame for a look that rivals any gallery.
The ceiling is just as important as the floor – sometimes more so. If you want to create an intimate feel for your dinner parties, visually lower a ceiling by installing a dark feature, like a stained wood slat design. This tip can work in just about any room dimensions but use caution on low ceilings, you don’t want to leave your diners feeling claustrophobic.
In this sunny breakfast room, designer Meg Braff brought in the greens of the garden for a soothing connection between indoors and outdoors. The lattice wallpaper, by Meg Braff Designs, camouflages the rooms tight quarters, while the apple-green molding, painted Sweet Daphne by Benjamin Moore, draws the eye up. The Serge Roche-style chairs are covered Bernard Thorp botanical-print linen.

Elegant style takes a laidback turn in this New York City dining room designed by Ashley Whittaker. A woven rug from Serena and Lily sets a casual tone for the bold Prussian blue Gracie wallcovering and a slew of antiques, like the table from Christie’s and the chandelier. Whittaker also shook things up by upholstering the dining chairs, from John Rosselli & Associates, in two fabrics: the outside backs are covered in a floral Muriel Brandolini fabric while inside backs and seats in a plum Global Leathers leather. Silk curtains from Scalamandre plus an antique mirror from 1stdibs play up the room’s height.

The vibrant colors and detail in this Dahlia flower piece are almost eye popping. Looking quite delicate, the flower seems almost lifelike as the colors and subtle shades blend to create the piece. The creation is painted painstakingly on one side of a piece of glass and then viewed from the other to bring out interesting depth, dimension, and nuance. Flower pieces can be used to decorate and enhance many styles of home décor and this one will brighten up any space.
