thanks rug folks for spamming on my photo.
@10207 The dining table was built by my contractor. Then thrown in the garbage due to poor design.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kim- Desire To Inspire: The first time I saw my house I was shocked at its size. It’s 12 ft wide. I had never been in a house that narrow before. I could tell right away that I could work with the basics it had to offer as it had good bones. I was also shocked by the poor workmanship on many things throughout the house, such as the makeshift kitchen island and the worst tile job I’d ever seen in the kitchen and powder room. It was October and the season was winding down and I was terrified I wouldn’t be able to find something, and a home that was liveable. I wanted a house in the city and my price range was very limiting.
Here is a full view of the kitchen. The Mid-Century Modern chairs and southwestern area rug make this kitchen a bit eclectic. To see antique tansu and tansu inspired furniture, look at GreenTea Design
Shawn Gauthier added this to 18 Ways to Make a Kitchen Your Own
Combine different styles. The kitchen may be a more utilitarian space, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be treated with the same design approaches as a living room or bedroom. Combining a modern table and chairs with a Southwestern rug and rustic cabinetry creates a vibe that is both eclectic and sophisticated.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Workbook: 10 Elements of an Eclectic Kitchen
2. Well-traveled flair with modern touches. I love this kitchen's bohemian feel. In my book, you can never go wrong mixing modern molded white plastic chairs and a vintage Kilim rug. And not to mention, who thinks of doing that in a kitchen in the first place? Most people would put an island in here. The cabinets have an Asian flair, while the modernism of the lights, appliances and chairs creates an unexpected tension.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Bring Balance to an Eclectic Look
Use high contrast. Juxtaposing two pieces that are really different usually works better than pairing pieces that are only sort of different. In this kitchen a classic kilim rug and antique cabinet are set off by a slick swoop of ultramodern Panton chairs. Try using a gold-framed baroque mirror over a clean-lined console, a farmhouse table with Eames chairs or a carved wood daybed with a Lucite coffee table.
