2018 Dining Room Furniture Trends


Pendant lighting is a fantastic way to achieve a modern, stylish and contemporary look within your home.  When you hang them above your dining room table, they provide many benefits, including:

  • A broad spectrum of light
  • It’s decorative and not as harsh as a spotlight
  • It’s perfect for illuminating areas where concentrated light is needed
  • They can be hung at any height you want or need
  • There are many different options to suit your personal taste

Pendant lights come in so many different shapes, styles and colors and they can make it easier to add a little accent or modern glamour to your dining room furniture.



Exhibiting art collections in the home is one of the most exciting trends of 2018, and the dining area is no exception. Artwork collaborates with other home accessories and dining room furniture to create a visual story, giving your space a sense of cohesion.

In particular, large-scale art pieces give a beautiful contrast on the wall they are exhibited and create a much needed focal point in any decorating composition.

How to choose the right size for your artwork:

  • Take into account the size of the room and the amount of dining room furniture you have. If it is sparse, a large sized artwork can fill up the visual field.
  • Look at the size of your wall. Your artwork should take up two-thirds to three-fourths of the wall.
  • If you are hanging your piece above any dining room furniture, the artwork should be three-fourths the width of the furniture and hung 6-12 inches above it.
  • Carefully select the hanging height. Any piece of art should be hung with the centre point at eye-level.



After it fell out of home-design favor a few years ago, wood paneling is now making a comeback. With updated colors, new directions and enviable types of wood, wood paneling adds warmth and character to your home, whatever room you use it in.

Wood also has some positive and unique qualities, including:

  • Excellent thermal insulation
  • Ages gracefully
  • Contributes to good indoor air quality
  • Sustainable material

Whether you are using it for the wall, ceiling, or making it into an eye-catching display, there is no doubt that wood paneling is one of the most exciting home furniture trends of 2018.


Gone are the days of the requisite dining room furniture consisting of perfectly matched table and chairs. Instead, mixing furniture styles, fabrics and finishes allow you to create a look that is much less contrived and more welcoming.

Something of the things you may want to consider are:

  • Texture: Create interest by mixing the materials of the table and chairs. For example, if you have a wooden table, try using an acrylic, plastic or upholstered chair.
  • Color: Don’t think about ‘matching’ your chair to your table. Instead, try to coordinate your chair to the rest of the room, whether it’s the lighting or home accessories such as the artwork or rug.
  • Style: To create a high contrast custom look, choose a chair that has a completely different style from the table. For example, use a modern chair if you have a farmhouse table, or an antique chair for a modern table.
