To have a dedicated dining room or not - that is the question. They are like a guest room - great to have on occasions but largely unused most of the time. I don't like dead space in a house and so this room by Trevor Tondo got me thinking. The comfy seating around the table is inviting and you could see yourself sitting with a friend having a coffee or reading a book and when formal seating is called for swap the chairs around putting the comfy chairs to the side. Admittedly this is a rather luxe example and quite a big dining / library room but the idea has potential. I also like the tree wall paper.
