Barrocker dining place interpreted in a modern way

Before, afterwards

The Berg family wanted a space for their meals, which invites them to linger, is imaginative, bright and inspiring. Here is one of two suggestions from our living expert who may also like you.

Exuberant ornamental: The ceiling lamp made of punched acrylic glass is a reinterpretation of traditional chandeliers, the table lamp is reminiscent of a hunting trophy.


Sober dining room and not particularly inviting. Here it lacks atmosphere.


A feast for the senses is this French-inspired dining room: playful medallion chairs surround a Baroque-style table. A modern interpretation of the old style is provided by the acrylic chandelier and the lamp with antlers.
