Scandinavian Dining Rooms

Scandinavian decor has become extremely popular around the world for its practical mix of functional design and beautiful form. Scandinavian dining rooms often feature neutral-colored dining tables in hues like light brown, white or black.

The design of the furniture is often very simple and practical.
