Challenged with the task of designing a gender-neutral dining space that reflected two very different styles, Nik's Naks founder, Nicole Ben-Dor, started with a table.The wood and iron Horchow dining table successfully merged Nicole's husband's modern industrial taste with her adoration for feminine French country, which sparked the inspiration for the rest of the room's design. Aside from blending their styles perfectly, the sizable table also accommodates frequent dinners with extended family and friends. Upholstered chairs provide a polished look, but are cozy enough to linger in far after the meal is over. Mason jar inspired pendant lighting has a playful country reference but still has enough modern edge for Nicole's husband. Classic white dishware feels clean against the rustic wooden table, while a large black and white safari-inspired photo adds dimension, visual interest, and luck, as Nicole says.
