30 Rustic Dining Rooms That Radiate Refinement

Rustic decor can have a wonderful warmth about it, making it the perfect decor style to bestow upon a dining room, all set for feeding the family or entertaining guests. Although, rustic style can also be injected with many different influences, such as industrial chic, tribal, geometric, modern or traditional. With so many directions to go in it can be difficult to know which one is right for you and your home. So to help we have put together an extensive selection of rustic dining room decor schemes that include a multitude of rustic dining tables, accent dining chairs and wooden benches, oversized dining pendant lights, and rustic wall decor.

This rustic dining setup is part of a kitchen diner layout. The dining area is anchored in front of a beautiful architectural alcove with the help of an oversized rattan pendant light. The woven shade complements the style of the six dining chairs that encompass a glass topped table.

Designer: Eric Aust  

Sitting beneath another rattan shade (though this one being of a smaller scale), a chunky wooden dining table looks the part with a beautiful live edge.

Visualizer: Tomas Sciskala  

An eclectic mix of colourful rattan dining chairs and an upholstered banquette bench seat sets this dining suite apart from the rest.

Visualizer: Angelina Alekseeva  

This mediterranean rustic chic decor scheme has a wonderful sense of sophisticated refinement about it. The roaring fireplace set atop a large store of cut logs makes the perfect accompaniment.

Visualizer: Jenya Lykasova  

Rustic decor is mixed with coastal flavour here. Driftwood artwork is mounted on one wall, and two mother-of-pearl chandeliers shimmer over the elegant dining table.

Designer: mode:lina architekci  

Three simple white dining room pendant lights with rustic style light up a wooden dining table. Beneath a raw wood dining surface, the legs have been painted white to give a clean and fresh modern finish.

Visualizer: Serhii Seinov  

Rustic and industrial are two aesthetics that meld perfectly together. Here a set of stools have been teamed with a long tressle table. A concrete and metal planter decorates one end.

This rustic industrial dining room uses a mixed bag of dining chairs and stools, each with their own patina.

Faux fur throws give this dining room a cosy rustic flourish, and softens hard wooden seats. Over at the other end of the room, a daybed receives the same treatment. Festoon string lights zigzag across a glass panelled ceiling, all set to add twinkling light overhead during late evening meals and nighttime festivities. A natural weave rug keeps things a little toastier underfoot by creating a barrier over a cold stone floor.

Visualizer: LOGOVO Design Group  

Unique rattan basket chairs surround a whitewashed tressel table. A large geometric pendant light adds a contemporary edge.

Visualizer: Nguyễn Thanh Tùng  

This dining space has a tribal influence, brought in the form of a monochrome tribal print wall hanging and matching cloth napkins. A set of four chairs are made up from two black painted wooden seats and two in natural rattan. The slight mismatch brings a good dose of personality and individuality.

Visualizer: Lien Nguyen   

In this space, a sleek dining table and geo dining chairs look particularly modern, but teamed with a distressed wooden feature wall and a steampunk clock the suite settles into a rustic vibe.

Designer: atelier Rua  

A dining table with drawers provides perfect on-hand storage for cutlery, placemats and napkins. The basket of fruit and vases full of garden flowers make a particularly sweet rustic centrepiece.

Visualizer: Plasterlina  

These sleek modern dining chairs work brilliantly with the shape and colour of the industrial style lighting.

Visualizer: Lyubimova Kate  

Rustic wood and metal shelving units provide a great backdrop to this refined dining area.

Designer: Mario Stoica  

A large wall clock can also fill up an empty dining room wall. This colourful one looks great beside the authentic barn door and cluster pendant lights.

Visualizer: Catherine Domracheva  

This small scale rustic dining room ensemble sits atop a bold geometric tile floor.

Designer: Estudio Valdés Arquitectos  

Amazing exposed wooden rafters do all the talking in this lofty rustic interior. In the centre of a long wooden table, two tall candlesticks are almost tall enough to touch the trio of slim pendant lights.

Rustic dining benches are a great way to go if you have a very large family or a fluctuating number of guests – there’s always room for one more when you can shuffle up a little closer! Dining benches offer a laid-back minimalist look, with no chair backs or a multitude of legs to clutter up the visual.

More dining benches, but this time rather than just two extra long seats we have four smaller pieces.

Classically upholstered chairs bring a touch of tradition to a rustic space.

Designer: Locati  

This vibrant area rug steals the spotlight beneath a pale dining set.

Visualizer: Alesya Kasianenko  

The dining set in this home would fit in with many different styles of interior decor but the towering cut log feature wall positively screams rustic. The logs, teamed with two huge rattan lampshades and a red accent dining chair, really warm up a cold white kitchen diner space. The tribal print rug finishes off the tiny but tenacious dining spot.

Visualizer: Home D  

This modern tribal chic home has a pale wood dining bench tucked neatly behind a sofa, coupled with contrasting black bar stools.

Designer: Renée del Gaudio  

Metal chairs work well alongside wooden ones.

Visualizer: Ivan Zaichenko  

Exposed bulb pendants on extendable wires can be spread as far and wide as needed.

Photographer: Kadir Asnaz   

Consider opting for brightly coloured wiring for an extra eye-catching lighting installation.

Designer: Jauregui  

Candles add drama…

… And a little romance!

Rustic Mountaintop Mansion With Indoor River

This amazing rustic mansion in Park City, Utah, USA is set on a mountaintop, in its own private 4.3 acres of woodland. The enchanting home was built in 1996 with multiple outdoor entertainment and relaxation areas. With so much of natures beauty to enjoy, you might wonder if the owners would ever wish to go indoors… But this dwelling holds an extraordinary surprise feature. A river runs right through the centre of the interior, flanked by extensive volumes of natural rock, so that you need never feel separated from nature. Best of all, this house is up for grabs! That is, if you have a spare $9,400,000 laying around.

The exterior of this home reflects the natural elements that surround it. Built from raw timber and rustic rock the façade looks like it could have grown from the land itself.

The mountaintop beauty spot is awash with the sound of cascading waterfalls from the ponds and birdsong from the trees.

Decks around the home exterior enjoy views over the ponds, the changing colours of the trees and bright skies.

Outdoor relaxation would never grow dull with so many stunning aspects to soak up and enjoy.

Nature seems to hug this home.

All aspects of this house have been kept raw and honest to blend in with the natural beauty spot. An exterior chunky wooden balustrade around the edge of a stone patio, and the central wooden deck with dining benches, settle in quietly with surroundings rather than shouting out their presence.

Although the location feels remote, the residence is located within just a mile of Park City and Deer Valley ski resorts.

Outdoor staircases are almost camouflaged.

This distinctive property could demand an astounding $10,000 a day for rental.

No neighbours to disturb the peace here.

The rich changing tones of exterior timbers have a stunning striped effect over the vast house.

Huge windows allow the views to be soaked up whilst inside.

Decks are built around the structure at multiple levels to offer different viewpoints.

Natural light floods into the home.

Water features are a special part of this sensationally unique home.

Tranquil pools can be found all around.

Nature rushes right up to the doorstep.

Dining alfresco is a given here. These leaf themed outdoor chairs make the perfect outdoor dining area for this space.

At last we go inside, but nature comes along with us via this incredible interior water feature.

The water and natural rock are complemented by lush green indoor plants.

Extensive use of natural elements continues throughout, covering over 10,500 square feet of living space.

Rock, stone and reclaimed wood connect this interior with the Earth. We can even see a tree trunk running right through it.

A stone staircase runs up and over to a spectacular wooden spiral staircase.

A series of matured brown leather couches make up a rustic living room area, looking in on a central wooden coffee table. Beside it an enormous stone fireplace with a towering chimney breast heats the lofty space. (Watch the video at the end of this article to see this unique fireplace in action!) A mezzanine balcony runs alongside them, leading off into bedrooms and bathrooms. Black and white photography is placed prolifically around this enormous space, along with tribal art and accessories.

Numerous unique ceiling fans rotate quickly overhead, keeping the grand living room cool and ventilated.

Rustic pendant lights also descend down from the rustic wooden ceiling, where roofline windows let in even more natural light and views of a clear blue sky. Tracks of smaller spotlights light the areas in between and around the edges. Looking down we can see the extensive stonework over the floor and steps, mirroring that of the sprawling patio outside beyond the glass doors and picture windows.

Four kitchen stools with scrolling metalwork frames are placed along the side of a smooth countertop that looks like it is rooted right into the floor. The surface looks as though it might have sprouted just to provide a comfortable place to sit and chat with the chef, and as a spot for casual dining. Four petite glass kitchen pendant lights illuminate the wood and stone installation.

The low-hanging breakfast bar pendant lights draw the eye up to appreciate the beautiful patina over a metal volume above the dining bench. The rest of the gourmet kitchen is an extensive selection of wooden cabinetry, some with glass doors to showcase the contents. A central island holds an extra sink and prep surface.

A step up to this rustic dining room has an undulating profile, lit by a floor level light. Two dining pendants hang above two banquet tables.

Everything about this 9 bedroom home is geared toward having guests come to stay, including this wet bar with eight bar stools.

The huge home also has 7 full bathrooms and 3 half bathrooms. This one stands out with quirky octopus decor.

A little wooden bridge crosses the unique indoor rock and water feature.

The formal dining room seats 12 diners at long live edge dining tables. Behind it the amazing spiral staircase climbs to the top of the 2-story great room.
