The style of the Scandinavian countries captivates with its simplicity: without ornaments, the furniture draws clean silhouettes.
The choice of table depends on the number of users. If we usually hold meetings, a good option is the extensible designs. “The best thing is that they open by sliding the legs, so that they don’t bother any guest”, Cristina tells us, “and if it opens with several extensions, we can extend it according to need”. The size is important: “90 cm wide is ideal, because it will allow us to put appetizers, bread and decorations in the center between the diners without getting in the way.” And as for the seats? The options explained to us by Acana Interiorismo are diverse.
“We can combine different chairs, but always with a match: they have the same shape but a different color, or the opposite. Another option is to mix vintage models. And three identical chairs and one different one usually look very nice.” To illuminate the dining room, Cristina Puerta recommends placing an overhead lamp, which frames the space, and place it at least 75 cm from the table so that it does not disturb the diners. And one last piece of advice: “frame the ceiling with LEDs and paint or wallpaper the frame, it gives incredible depth!”
