Make sure that everything in your dining area has balance and harmony. You can use your old furniture if you want but if you think it doesn't complement with the entire design, then you can buy a new one. Your aim is to really make your dining area appealing, comfortable and distinct. Everything in the place should work well together. The choice of color, accesories, lighting and other aspects should look good as a whole.
For a more inviting look, use a rug for your contemporary dining room that has subtle earth tones or geometric designs. But you can also use brighter earth tones if you want to have a touch of vibrancy in your room. For a more contemporary look, you can use bamboo and hemp rugs. You may also place a Persian rug under a glass-topped dining table for a more interesting look.
Attain a sleek look by using minimum accessories. Use accessories with a natural touch like tall curly willows in a pottery vase. You can add some lighting that will give your dining room a dramatic touch. Choose accessories that don't have much details and prints. Use those that look simple. For your fabric, choose those that have solid colors. If you will use patterns, use bold and geometric patterns.
