A dining room can be the crown jewel of a home. It's where guests gather for carefully prepared meals, where friends tend to linger during special gatherings, and where the family comes together to discuss important matters of the day. Nordic countries treat this space as the heart of the home where family snuggles up to a hot meal next to the people they love most. This post contains 32 gorgeous Scandinavia themed dining rooms in a variety of styles, from rustic country charm to streamlined modern minimalism. Endless Scandinavian-inspired dining room inspiration awaits.
Our first dining room is perhaps the most accessible, as most of the furniture and decor comes from IKEA. The black dining chairs are from the Esbjö rn collection, and the wing chair in the background is part of the Strandmon line.
This dining room brightens its modernistic grayscale interior with a set of curvaceous Wishbone chairs, an iconic style by the famous Danish furniture designer Hans Wegner. Advertisement
Bold wood paneling marks the transition from the carpeted living room to this distinctive dining room, cheered up by bright pops of yellow throughout.
Minimalistic and outfitted in simple eggshell white, this dining room draws attention to its dining arrangement exclusively. The table feels welcoming with its light and warm wood tones. Giancarlo Piretti designed the translucent folding chairs in 1967 and they remain just as much of a modern masterpiece today.
Simple, monochromatic, and just warm enough to keep guests gathered around for conversation after a heavy meal.
This dining arrangement keeps things extra low profile to preserve emphasis on the incredible window view. The unfinished wood legs are perhaps the most substantial part of the arrangement but blend seamlessly into the light floor below them.
Classic leather furniture stands out from its backdrop of minimalistic white surfaces. The dining chairs exhibit the best combination of modern form and classic materials, while the butterfly lounge chair in the back stands alone as an icon of mid-century design.
Here, both sets of dining chairs represent the work of Danish designers. Hans Wegner designed the seating in the foreground, and the taller chairs against the wall are the work of Arne Jacobsen. The rest of the room takes strong cues from the chic and dressed styles attributed to Scandinavian interiors. Advertisement
