Beautiful Minimalist Danish Dining Room
Hello Friends! Today we’re recreating one of the most beautiful dining rooms we have ever seen, designed by the incredibly talented Danish stylist Jeanett Wellendorf. At first sight, we love how bright, airy and natural this dining room is, but we’re really drawn in by the various designer details – the chairs with natural cord seats, the table top made of 2 planks of wood, the statement ceiling lights, and all the other details.
Given our fandom of this dining room, we’ve taken it as inspiration for today’s Inspiration: Reimagined. We hope you’re as happy with the alternatives we offer as we are and that you find this post helpful in designing your dream home.

When it comes to recreating a dining room look finding the right dining table is pretty important! Our inspiration dining table has a few key features we really like: the natural wood, the designer square metal frame, and the two slabs put together to create the table top. In looking for the best alternative dining table, we focused on those characteristics, but sadly we weren’t able to find them all together in one table at a high street price. What we’ve done instead is gather our favourite dining tables above that have at least one of the key features. We hope you like our alternatives! Our personal favourites are tables numbered one and nine, which funnily enough are both the most and least expensive of our choices!

It seems like all the inspiration rooms we’ve been doing lately have had the most beautiful candelabras. And we said this in our last post, but we’re happy to say it again: the high street is totally winning at making candelabras!

The final touch of the inspiration dining room is the vase, which we think is really special. If you look closely, you can see that the glass is thin, the shape is modern and the cut is clean. Above we’ve offered a few alternatives that we think have the same spirit of modernity. One brand that does modern glassware very well at a high street price is LSA, which is why we’ve included a few picks from that brand. Let us know which you prefer!
