This project was super exciting.
For this dining area I wanted to keep all the furniture spaced out in the open plan as much as possible to help create more passage space and the illusion of an overall larger apartment.
The goal was to create a neutral background yet adding a slight pop of colour using the art work and decor pieces which have made the space what it is in my opinion.
Creating a minimalistic, Scandinavian style home was the goal here and I am obsessed with the end result.
These chairs are by the brand Ton. A handcrafted Italian brand that produce gorgeous one of a kind pieces. A large selection of finishes and colours available.
Originally I was going to opt for an oval white lacquered table then decided that a round table would make more sense in terms of utilising the space better so I went for a concrete finish matt grey table instead by Molteni. The chunky base of this table is what I was drawn to, it gives it a very unique look.
In the early stages of planning even before I had furniture picked out, I knew we need to include a cool pendant light to hang over the table to make a statement in the space. This sputnik style pendant light definitely completed the room and made the corner pop.

The decor items were always in the back of my mind. I knew exactly what I wanted to use but it wasn’t the easiest to source.
The painting is a one of a kind, an original Alec Monopoly so it was a no brainer it had to have a special place on the wall i.e. front and centre.
As for the rest of the decor pieces, I added the balloon swan by Jeff Koones, a Vogue coffee table book, concrete bowl from Kave and locally sourced cut off pampas leaves from Floreal and vase from Atrium (no longer available).
