What’s Hot in Dining Room Furniture This Fall

Now that dining room furniture buying season is almost upon us, your design-maven friends at Jerusalem Furniture are giving you a quick overview of what’s hot in home dining decor for 2019 in this first fall blog post for the year. It’s natural as shadows lengthen and there’s a hint of cold in the breeze to think of homecoming, gathering for meals. That’s a big part of the holidays next to presents and seeing loved ones, right? That’s why beautiful, elegant dining room furniture is much in demand during the cooler autumn months. Let’s look at a few trends to make choosing your dining table and chairs FUN!

Mix’n’Match Dining Tables and Chairs

A continuing trend over recent years in cool dining room furniture is to just say NO to matchy-matchy! The idea is to creatively break design rules by artfully mismatching your dining table and seating. One way to pull off this look is to use a matching color scheme. The only hard and fast rule to make this mismatch game work is to make sure all your dining chairs are the same height and of course fit under the table you’ve chosen!

The Word for Dining Furniture This Fall: Eclectic!

If you’re redoing your dining room furniture this autumn, think eclectic, even employing styles you think would clash! The trick is to find styles that cleverly complement each other and DON’T really clash. For example, a sleek ultramodern metal dining table with Victorian-style dining armchairs or even rough-hewn wood dining benches that kids love. Other design ideas for this approach include glam-meets-industrial or Queen Anne dining chairs paired with a tempered-glass dining table. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

Funky Dining Room Lighting

Once you’ve got your dining table and complementary, non-matching dining chairs picked out, rethink the traditional dining room chandelier for something like pendant lighting or a cool retro atomic starburst look for modern decor. In this fall are unusual, even asymmetrical light shapes and odd textures. Wicker lighting is also popular.

Be it a kitchen dinette with fun pub-height tables and stools or an extension table for your grand holiday gatherings, you’ll always find quality top brands for ultra-low prices at our Bensalem, PA store showroom and other Jerusalem Furniture locations!
