This Is How to Nail an Airy Midcentury Dining Room

Who: Tom Rosenberger, art director

Where: Linz, Austria

Why we love this pic: The long legs and sleek silhouettes of midcentury furniture have a special knack for creating breathable spaces. Here, the cool white Eames chairs add fresh and unobtrusive visual interest that's beautifully balanced by the warm wood table and matching floor. And this simple, airy set-up is the perfect backdrop for the striking black-and-white artwork to make a strong impression.

The takeaway: Midcentury furniture is a stunning way to create airy, breathable spaces.
