The Lighting in your Dining Room should be beautiful, which most lights are, but it also should be functional.
This will be a mix of general lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting that will set the mood for a number of functions, including for a formal dinner, a family get-together, and other activities such as homework, hobbies, or family bookkeeping. It all depends on your own preference and life style.
A recommended must is to use dimming controls, as they will enable you to vary the light for each occasion.
The chandelier is mostly the focal point of the dining room. Suspended over the dining room table, it will serve as a decorative style element that enhances the beauty of your fine furnishings. When you dim the light on your chandelier, a soft, glowing atmosphere similar to candlelight is created.
Recessed low voltage lighting this is my personal preference in use of my interior design projects, as they provide general lighting, while enabling you to highlight prized possessions throughout the room. A set of four recessed down lights (important to use low voltage halogen lights here) around the dining table supplement the light from the chandelier, while providing accent lighting for your tableware. The pure white light of low-voltage fixtures will make your crystal and silverware sparkle. I have tried this set up for many dining rooms and it was always a big success with my Clients.
A buffet or sideboard can be flanked with traditional wall sconces on either side. Choose fixtures that complement the style of your chandelier. Displayed objects can be accented with recessed down lights (again as before - low voltage halogen fixtures) installed in the ceiling above.
The china cabinet, breakfront, hutch, or wall niche can become a showplace for your prized collectibles by installing strips of low-voltage mini-lights under the shelves or even fiber optic lights.
One more item to pay attention too, is the right way of lighting your art work, antique displays or family portraits. They can be dramatically high-lighted with recessed adjustable accent fixtures.

Zeno Nugari designed the Escapade Sofa as a low based mattress style lounger that just happens to have removable slip covers and super soft back cushions. The back cushions can be placed freely on the sofa in any location due to their weighted bottom section - but they can also be removed for when you prefer to lay back and have a nap and while this makes the Escapade not only super functional and comfortable but it is also sleek and modern making it the perfect choice to pair with other contemporary pieces such as the Flying Flower cocktail table by Sacha Lakic and the Arloso Lounge Chair designed by Zeno Nugari as seen here.
While there may not be any glue or screws in this French Oak desk designed by Bruno Serrao for Wewood, what the desk does have is tonnes of storage. Compact but oh so functional with its many compartments, the
Desk is perfect for a home office or professional environment.
One solid plank of wood from a 350-year-old Oak tree was used to create this very impressive 320x110cm table. Designed and created by Christa Braun and Christoph Braun from Berngau, Germany, Table 0007 is an awesome example of what can be done with a little vision and the right tools. The weight of this plank requires substantial support, yet the base does not overpower the top, in fact it is perfectly proportioned with the thickness of the slab. What an awesome table for either a dining room or a conference.
