As a designer, my goal is always to create a space that is not only beautiful but also reflective of my clients’ lifestyles. In this mod California casual dining area design, I’ve incorporated a circular dining table paired with the these angular side chairs to construct an easygoing vibe that is both warm and inviting. The chairs add an organic element to the space with their woven cane backs and natural wood finish, which creates a textural contrast against the smooth surface of the table.

To complement the dining furniture, I have chosen a beige, black, and white color palette to tie throughout the room. This simple wooden sideboard is a perfect addition to the space as it provides ample storage while staying chic with its natural wood finish and gorgeous wood grain. The striped placemats from Wayfair and embroidered napkins from Pottery Barn create a layered and polished look that is stylish without feeling fussy!

To add interest and anchor the space, we’ve selected this stunning landscape photograph from Minted that depicts a path through grassland on the California coast. I love how a large piece of artwork creates a focal point in a design, and the California motif is always an added bonus for me!

Lighting is an essential aspect of any design, and I’m loving the look of this 3-Light Black Pendant Chandelier from Wayfair. The color and silhouette make a statement that is both minimal and bold! The black finish adds a modern element to the space and creates a contrast against the lighter tones of the furniture.

When all these elements come together, this dining area design perfectly suits the California casual lifestyle. With mod furniture, a neutral color palette, organic textures and a regionally specific art piece, it creates a warm and inviting atmosphere that is perfect for entertaining and enjoying good food and company!
