Art Deco

Art deco, which is short for arts décoratifs, is characterized by rich detail work, bold geometry, and an amalgam of hues and colors that create an unexpected cohesion of rich textures and graphic design elements. Having reached the height of its popularity in the 1920s, ‘30s, and ’40s, the style still ushers in a sense of old-world glamour, luxury, and order – with symmetrical designs rendered in exuberant shapes. Some easy ways to master this look are by adding ultra-luxe materials, incorporating geometric patterns, or mixing art deco pieces with more traditional materials such as wood for a dynamic look. Given that the accouterments for an art deco-inspired room are unique and bold, the perfect breakfast nook tables should be more reserved so as to playfully juxtapose and work with, as opposed to compete with, the surrounding milieu.

French Bistro Chic

When it comes to any breakfast nook, it’s only natural to want to evoke a sense of comfort. Transitional style, though it sounds vague, is anchored by an intentional and directional design tactic that seamlessly blends traditional coziness with the contemporary flair. A popular transitional-style combination is this chair, which is anchored by a traditional, clean structure and materiality, with a modern piece, such as this lighting fixture with gold accents. The incorporation of geometric accoutrements and sculptural, gold accents beautifully pair with more minimalist breakfast nook tables.

Mid Century-Modern

Mid-century aesthetics are primarily centered around minimal forms and an emphasis on craftsmanship. As a currently en vogue, yet timeless, design movement, Mid-century Modernism underscores simplistic design and a less-is-more approach. In order to authentically register this look, one can refer to furniture with organic or geometric lines married with rich textures, like marble. It is best to keep a warm, neutral color palette and incorporate a touch of texture by integrating natural elements and raw materials such as wood or wicker. Added floral arrangements, too, help to underscore the movement’s emphasis on natural beauty.
