An Ethereal Dining Room

The beautiful dining room above is by Interior Designer Molly Luetkemeyer of M Design. Molly interned with infamous Designer Kelly Wearstler and has now created a name for herself with her fresh and innovative designs.

I just don't like those chairs and they are in every design magazine at the moment. I love rear wall in this room though!

MT - I do have to agree with you about the chairs - the thing I like most about this room is the painting and the white billowing curtain. I'm not usually a fan of glass dining tables either. You're probably asking why I say I like the room - I'm not sure really other than it just has something about it and I do think it's that painting!!

I think it's the translucent quality and the reflections of things that are basically see through. The whole thing is anchored by a simple block of confectioner's pink.

How can you not like those chairs???!!!! They are my favourites! I think it's a bit overkill though to have them paired with a glass table.

I think you're right Jo hence my heading "An Ethereal Dining Room". I just love the reflections - its sort of like water which is supposed to be a very calming element! Thanks for clarifying my thoughts on this room Jo and thanks MT for opening a discussion on this interesting room!!

Kim - these are definately your type of chairs!! I just think they wouldn't be very comfortable! But who am I saying that - I always favour looks over comfort (which is such a terrible thing to admit!!)

I say no on the ghost chairs. This room doesn't look pulled together because the scale is all wrong, it's dark and the art on the wall looks like a bulletin board. It could just be bad photo styling. Maybe they should have dressed the table.

The artwork makes this room. I disgree about the chairs... I think they work great with the table and the tint of the table and chairs being off, make it so they are not matchy matchy. The biggest problem here, and I'm surprised otheres didn't comment on this, is the light fixture.
