You will tell us, in a dining room, whatever its style, the centerpiece is the table. And that’s true. But here, in the context of a masculine decoration, it is even more obvious. The style and the materials that make up the table and the chairs/armchairs/benches are the heart of the decoration. They are almost sufficient to decorate the room. We will see the importance of minimalism in a masculine-style dining room. And it is precisely the furniture that allows you to put less.
NOBLE MATERIALS MAKE UP THE DINING ROOM
Whether for the table and the seats that surround them or for the coverings, we are on a range of noble materials. Durable, robust materials that will create a cozy atmosphere and give depth to your space. We are also looking for authenticity. As we have already seen in the living room, the place of materials is great in this type of decoration.
- Different wood species (not only dark ones: oak, walnut, cherry, mango…);
- Stone, bricks;
A CLEAN STYLE
As we mentioned above, there is a minimal aestheticism specific to male dining rooms. Less but better. The best comes from the materials, choosing the perfect furniture for the size of the room. The less will pass in different forms. Less decorative trinkets above the buffet, less wall decoration. At least, we also have in the furniture: simple, authentic, clean, and functional shapes. The chairs are also easily replaced by a bench which saves the succession of files around the table and which creates a certain asymmetry.
VINTAGE INSPIRATIONS FOR A PATINATED DINING ROOM
In addition to being minimal and focusing on the essentials, the masculine style in the dining room (but not only…) is also vintage-inspired. Not one era in particular, but several. You can find inspiration in the industrial style, in the mid-century modern movement, and even why not in the classic chic. Furniture can have lived one or more lives before arriving in your interior, their patina will give an additional cachet to your decor.
