In our open floor plan, the “dining room” isn’t so much a room as it is an area. I know open floor plans are always appealing, but after living in this space I’ve found that I prefer a little bit of division. The etagere provides an imaginary line, which is really nice. And I do love how you can see the kitchen and sunroom all in one glance. The chairs and table are hand-me-downs from my family, and I love the old traditional chairs with the more modern table base. The giant drum shade is white burlap that reflects a little of the beige from the walls and drapes and I just love it.
