Dining room designs inspired by the Far East usually revolve around natural materials. Whether it is modeled on a traditional Japanese tea room or on a larger communal style dining room like those in China, you will undoubtedly find wood, stone, metal and glass in some combination.
Below are some unique materials to consider for an Asian inspired dining room design.
Wood on Wood – For the most traditional look, add a wooden table and chairs to a room with wood floors and walls adorned with wooden framed art. The art should also reflect the trees from which the entire décor is made.
Metal & Glass – Modern and contemporary decor make use of steel and glass relying on the artwork in the room to instill an Asian feel. Most designers stay with lightly colored furniture and use brightly colored accouterments throughout the room for visual interest.
Stone, Wood & More – If your style is more iconoclastic, consider adding a stone table with wooden chairs and maybe an Asian-inspired metal sculpture. The idea is to use subtle Asian elements to define the décor.
