If ever there’s a room that’s gone out of fashion, only to re-emerge triumphantly, it’s the dining room. Ditched in many space-starved homes and seen as stuffy and irrelevant, the dining room became a WFH hero during the pandemic and is taking on renewed relevance in the post-pandemic world as we rebuild social connections, often over food.
Our edit of midcentury modern style dining rooms on Pinterest celebrates dining – on a modest scale. From Japandi-infused spaces with teak furniture and shoji screens to bold, modernist colour-blocked spaces centring around lighting pendants, this edit marries form and function with just a touch of nostalgia.
