7 tips to create a neoclassical concept for your dining room furnishing

Formal balance, decorative variety, unquestionable dramatic presence: the combination that creates the style key in a furnished room, following neo-classical style.

Let’s take a look at the 7 key steps in setting out a style concept with great aesthetic results:


1. Decide on the right colour palette

Every interior design project worthy of the name starts with an initial bold step, or setting out the right colour palette to suit the furnishing context. In this case, the neo-classic style requires a range of soft, sober colours, such as cream, ivory, cream, gold and silver.

Tones of this type can add an aesthetic dimension to your dining room.


That’s why we advise you to create a furnishing concept that is perfectly in line with the typical colour standards of this style trend.

2. Paint the walls or decorate them with wallpaper: the choice is yours

To start decorating your dining room, you need to start with the walls. The choice is all yours: paint in pastel shades or wallpaper with a neo-classical design (motifs or arabesques in classic style).

In both cases, these decorative solutions will provide a look based on elegance.

3. Decide on your decorative lighting

As well as providing the light a room needs, decorative lighting is ideal for creating a dining room with a welcoming atmosphere. If you want an elegant decor in your dining area, choose lamps in neo-classical style.

We recommend that you combine more than one lighting solution, made in different materials. Choose important lamp shades and/or appliqués with glass or crystal body. You can also add table lamps in wood covered in gold leaf.

Use decorative lamps with a classic design to convey the ambience you want to create in your dining room: welcoming, convivial, stimulating… 


4. Choose furnishings with precious detailing and decorations: friezes, coping and columns

The atmosphere in each place takes shape above all thanks to precious decorative detailing such as friezes, coping and columns.

Focus points that as well as enhancing your furniture, also boost the style potential of your dining room.

Choose furnishing elements that are finished in great detail, using prestigious decorations: sideboards with gold friezes, designs with a Greek or Roman feel, combined, where possible, with a display cabinet with side columns.

5. Select a dining set with a neo-classical design

The table and chairs are an essential part of any dining room furniture. If you want to find a style that matches the rest of the furnishings, these elements need to comply with the rules of neo-classical style.

Opt for chairs with sleek style and fan-shaped backs, finished with fine fabrics. Tables should be squared and have bold gilt decoration along the edges. 


6. Place a large classical-style rug in your dining room

To complete your layout, you can always place your table and chairs on a large rug in classical style. Make sure the rug is large enough to cover a space for the whole dining set.

A decorative touch that won’t go unnoticed, while also adding comfort and style to your dining room.
