    I don't think it's terribly modern, but I'd say the rug is. I'd say it's a mix -probably transitional

    I love the entire space regardless, the rug truly brings everything together!!

    What is your take on how may chairs can be placed around a 72" round table. Thanks

    Sorry about the confusion. I was originally hoping that I could use the Q.A. table and Q.A. chairs and update the look in some way. Your idea of black and white slipcovers on the Q.A. chairs might work if I keep the Q.A. table. Perhaps I could bring in a bold black and white rug similar to yours and bring in classic contemporary art (drawings) and/or sculpture in black iron to update the overall look of the room. As I reflect on this, I'm beginning to picture a minimalist type room if I end up using the Q.A. table and slipcovered chairs. I'll send photos after the move-in occurs.

    Regarding the table in your photo, would a custom cut mirror for the top of your table work instead of painting it black? I suppose you would cover the table with a cloth when the table is in use as the mirrored surface could be distracting while dining. I need to go back to your photo to look at your table again. Perhaps it doesn't lend itself to this.

    I love your ideas - i think your room is going to be great! The QA chairs are more of a distraction than the table because you see the legs more, so slipcovers are good. I LOVE the idea of a mirrored top for mine! I'm going to consider that, or a custom table cloth that's really nice with both black and white in it :)

    I love this dining room! Can you tell me about the drapery? Is it black or charcoal? What fabric? Love it!!!

      It looks charcoal. I agree it is beautiful. A great option is to do the panels in a dupioni silk. That way even if they are black when the light hits them they will have a grey look to them.

    Love the dining chairs, where did you get them?

    - Is the black stripe a separate piece of fabric?

      is the ceiling a high gloss cloud white and the trim semi gloss?
    • stephaniecorrine
      This room is perfection!! Because the chairs are slip covered will they get very wrinkled after people sit in them? I think I want a crisp formal look & not a comfy lived-in look for the fancy dining room. thoughts?

        Such a beautiful room!

        1matilde - The mirror looks to be the Prisca mirror, the small version. If you click on the name under the mirror it will take you to the Houzz page with more information on the mirror.

        Hope that helps!
