Luxury Italian Dining Room Furniture
There is something inherently timeless and beautiful about luxury Italian décor that leaves us all mesmerized. When it comes to classic, luxurious dining rooms, this becomes even more evident with the likes of Roberto Cavalli and Medea combining a hint of modernity with timeless aesthetics and golden glint.

If you have both the space and the budget to spare, then getting one seems like an absolute no-brainer!
A dining room draped in luxury need not be all about timeless aesthetics, plenty of gold and a healthy dose of Victorian style. Even modern dining rooms with their gorgeous wood or stone dining tables, neutral colors that oscillate between black, white and gray and contemporary finishes can seem equally enchanting when done right. A large part of getting this elusive jigsaw right is lighting. Yup, it once again comes down to a sparkling chandelier, a cascading pendant fixture with crystal brilliance or even a custom chandelier that steals the spotlight with ease.
Metallics play a pivotal part in giving the dining room a luxurious look. Even if you are not too keen on an overload of ‘gold’, do think about more restrained and modern metallic accents to usher in some much needed dazzle! A grand dining table in stone adds to this glitter with wall art, wallpaper and other coverings creating a captivating backdrop. Complete the space with beautiful vases, classic candleholders and some fresh flowers to accentuate the ‘luxury quotient’. Cabinets with glass doors or a fancy china display takes this already wonderful dining room to a whole new level!
