LITERARY DINING

The first dining room I ever saw that was also a "library" was a beautiful dining room set, paired with some "library" wall paper. Somehow, it didn't look as bad as you might imagine, but - not nearly as beautiful as these multi-purpose library/dining spaces.


For most people, formal dining spaces are one of the least occupied rooms in their homes, and should they have them- libraries [in any capacity] are as well. 


By combining them, it not only gives a place to spread out your work and books comfortably...
But provides space for a pretty and unique alternative to wallpaper, mirrors, and art. I think it makes it ultimately cozy.


These dark dining rooms set the perfect tone for a romantic dinner for two any night of the week, or a warm and inviting friday night with friends in the dead of winter!


I have always loved the idea of displaying your favorite books on a big round table - they would be easy to remove to set the table, and provide for a more stylized look when your not using the table.

my fav is the older style dinning table with the modern chair that have fushia cushions, all surrounded by bright books. my children often prefer the dining table to their own little tables or desk for crafts and reading, it is good to see one that would hide scratched still looking contemporary.
