1. Choose the right mid-century table
If you are going for a new dining room decor, start with the essentials. Get a mid-century dining table that will set the tone for the whole room.

2. Pair it up with a few mid-century dining chairs
As we keep tackling the essentials you need for your new dining room, you need to know everything about dining chairs.

If you’re choosing the marble-based table we have shown you above, don’t overpower your decor, and go with a minimalist design for your chairs, like these classic mid-century chairs.
3. Add a comfortable accent
Make your dining room look and feel comfortable. The best way to create that feeling is using a rug that hugs your dining table and chairs. Keeping with a mid-century vibe, go for geometric patterns and warm colors such as tangerine, and scarlet red. You can also go for colder tones, but keep them a little bit faded. Our favorite color suggestions include avocado green, sherbet blue, and beige.
4. Make room for storage
You will want to store a couple of things in your dining room, that is for sure. Your best chinas should be stored in a worthy sideboard. Monocles sideboard can be customized with any finish, so whether you want it in gold plated brass or nickel-finished brass, you will get it your way.
