In this open space, the designer has added their personal touches through the unique reverse-lily-pad styled light fixture and the illusion of wall embedded surrealist artwork. In a modern space the accents become more meaningful because there is less of them as we see in this modern dining space.

Neutrals may become your best friend in this process by allowing you to create a soft and inviting aura through your modern designs. The layered lighting with buffet lamps and a linear pendant give the space an added option for ambiance.

This luxurious spin on a contemporary design has us convinced that clear tables are a trend to keep our eyes on. Without the confines of an opaque material, this table opens up the space and gives the room a sleek and chic vibe. A less expensive way to achieve this look is with the popular acrylic constructed furniture that is making its way into the design world with much praise.
