The inherent minimalism of the Japanese style and the timeless beauty of the Chinese style are a real source of inspiration for the Western world. If the terms “Asian style” are a bit too broad, we can say that it is a style derived from the Far East, with important influences from China and Japan. Certainly, in Asian style, Indian design is not to be ruled out; but today we are going to focus on Japanese and Chinese styles. Discover in this post some inspiring ideas to decorate your dining room with the Asian style.
1. Like an air of opulence
Let’s start with Asian dining rooms that are different from what we tend to see. When we talk about Asian styles, we think of everything that is relaxing and calming. It’s not false; however, this first category of dining rooms that we are going to see exude rather opulence. These colorful and elegant pieces are greatly inspired by Chinese traditions and design. Black, red and gold are unlikely to go unnoticed in these dining rooms. The fabulous light fixtures, well decorated ceilings and Chinese wall decorations make these dining rooms special.
2. Japanese style minimalism
If you would like to transform your current dining room for a relaxing place away from everyday stress and electronic noise, then this is the Japanese style for you. Those looking for decoration and a Zen atmosphere will love these pieces which stand out for the traditional shoji screens, organic elements, natural textures and the important natural lighting. Japanese design gives pride of place to nature. Everything seems to be in harmony in the rooms inspired by this style. With mid-century modern chairs and / or pretty pendant lights, your Japanese-style inspired dining room can take on a more modern feel.
3. Modern and Asian
It’s quite simple to combine modern and Asian styles. You can mix several contrasting elements from different cultures without having to go down the path of eclectic design. The simplicity of a handmade oriental partition, items you brought back from your last trip to China, a statue of Buddha, will bring the Asian touch to your dining room without you having to touch the general decor which is totally modern.
Apart from that, the wooden dining tables, intricate wood carvings and lanterns will also allow you to incorporate this style.

7. Bench seat upholstered in geometric
Wingback host and hostess chairs, a bench seat upholstered in geometric David Hicks fabric, and deep red painted sculpted dining chairs that surround an antique dining table. Grass canvas wallcovering, architectural remains, and traditional sconces and trims blend with Asian touches, breathing new life into the traditional style.
8. Connecticut area
A beautiful silver on the table and a crystal chandelier are essential for a truly traditional dining room. A long mahogany table with classic shaped antique chairs completes this piece for a classic feel. Even though the wallpaper and fabric of the chair is formal, the light colors make the room cheerful and serene. Floral centerpieces for important events add to the traditionally chic feel of the room.
9. Translucent panels
The translucent panels in front of the whole dining room are really lovely. It smacks of Japanese at one point, and when you look at the furniture set that we have here, we see Asian. We like the details on the back of the chairs, which go well with the parquet.
10. Hit on a vibrant hue
Hit on a vibrant hue that makes you happy. Pay attention to your emotional response to color wherever you go. Did the lush turquoise water of your Caribbean vacation make your heart sing? Run with it! Focus on updating a room that has lived in mostly neutral colors until now and add in several healthy doses of your cheery hue.

According to Maria Teresa Durr, “The dining room features fina raffia wallpaper, also used in the master bedroom and living room.
