Designer Advice:

This nook is predominantly white with solid pine wood accents, so we would highly recommend some woven cushions to add warmth and style. Furthermore, you can decorate the table top with a large Areca palm tree, ideal for a dining space. White walls and neutral floorings will really enhance the farmhouse-chic of this design.

Designer Advice:

Monochrome is a winning formula for many homes, and when you add the element of soft white pine, you can find a balanced decoration. The strong floral pattern speaks for itself, so you could add a plain spruce or stone shaded blanket for cosiness, or add a touch of colour with hot pink or pear shade crockery and cutlery - a lively and creative design.

Buying Guide

White, gray, black, beige, and brown are all classy colors for a modern scheme. Not only can these colors effortlessly blend into modern kitchen areas but they also make the space appear brighter and airier without compromising on elegance.

Those who want a colorful yet modern breakfast nook can instead opt for upholstery in bright shades of blue, red, yellow, and orange. For an even more vibrant breakfast nook, you may want to pick a bench or chair upholstery in a vibrant pattern such as red, white, and ivory stripes.

That said, you can also introduce brighter colors into your neutral color palette through the use of throw pillows. For instance, if your breakfast nook furniture is all white, gray, or beige, consider adding splashes of colors to the setting with turquoise, peach, lemon yellow, and jade green throw pillows. These colors will help liven up the room and make your furniture look more inviting and casual despite it being modern.

Modern breakfast nook furniture can usually seat 2-6 people, depending on the exact size of the table and the number of seats included with the set. Some small breakfast nooks designed for apartments will only seat 2-3 people comfortably, especially if you’re laying out dishes for serving on the table.

Breakfast nook sets with bench seating can help you squeeze in 6 or more people for a gathering. How many heads you can seat depends on the size of the people.  Kids can often fit more comfortably on bench seating than adults for this reason. If you regularly entertain groups with children, bench seating is a great way to make the most of your available space.

When sourcing modern breakfast nook furniture, you need to start with the amount of space you have to work with. Traditionally, breakfast nooks are quite small—and, depending on how your home is built, you may not even need chairs.

We’d recommend starting with a high-quality, well-built table, and adding on some angular chairs if space allows. Mixing materials is quite modern; we’re seeing lots of birch tables with shiny aluminum chairs. Pedestal tables are also very trendy, as are upholstered benches.

Regardless of the specific configuration you go with, make sure that you invest in lots of pillows to make your breakfast as cozy and comfortable as possible.
