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.
For dining room furniture, use those with strong lines, straight edges and right angles. Curves can also be used but these curves are soft. You can use wooden or metal dining chairs that have straight backs. But you can also use upholstered chairs with solid colors. Avoid using prints for it is not really used for a contemporary design. For your dining table, choose the kind that has sleek lines. A wooden table that has clean lines will be good. Or you may opt for a glass topped table with silver legs.
The dining room won't be a dining room without a dining table. Consider the right size and type of the table. Accessorize it in a manner that it suits the design style of your room. You should have good table placement and a good center piece, too. Also, do not forget to choose the kind of tableware that will complement with the color and design.
