The ways global style are expressed at home are as diverse and dynamic as our multi-cultural world. This past April, Elle Decor featured the beauty of this approach to decor throughout the pages of their annual international issue. And if you flip through the portfolios of some of America’s top interior designers, you will see that the global aesthetic is definitely finding its way into both modern and contemporary spaces. More and more, we see homes showcasing global wares picked up on travels or from a visit to a favorite boutique. Here are some of my favorite global tables inspired by a multitude of nations and cultures.

Modern Tea Room, Design by Amy Lau, Featured in Elle Decor

This tea room, designed by Amy Lau and featured in Elle Decor, brings together a Parsons table (you can find a similar one at West Elm), German-designed lanterns and a Chinese cedar Buddha. The mix of cultures feels so modern and eclectic.

Moroccan Style Dining Room by Designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard

This dining room is the work of interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard and highlights the striking beauty of contemporary Moroccan-inspired decor. Aren’t those carved chairs gorgeous?

Design by Jamie Herzlinger, Featured in Trad Home

Chinese Chippendale chairs add an international aesthetic to this glamorous dining area by Jamie Herzlinger as seen in Trad Home. The white paint takes them from traditional to mod.

Global style dining room, Architectural Digest, Iris Apfel

And style icon Iris Apfel definitely knows how to layer on global style, evident in the dining room featured in Architectural Digest. An Italian chandelier is the finishing touch in this room appointed with treasures from around the world.

You can find pretty global treasures for the dining room at ABC Carpet & Home, Anthropologie and The Loaded Trunk. I would also suggest visiting local thrift stores. You never know what amazing pieces you might find.

Are you interested in incorporating global style in your home? Have you already featured it in your dining room or another space?

  7. c) are supported by credible industry reputation, reliability and service.
    Mark out one line equal to the width of your floor space.
    Reaching the perfect horizontal or vertical line
    is not that easy with the traditional accessories such as
    bubble leveler.
