Dining Room Dilema

Our dining room is a hard room to decorate for me. It has vaulted ceilings so it is difficult to create a balanced look, on one side of the room the ceiling is 20 feet high, while the other side is only 9 feet. The other challenge is that the living room and dining room are one big great room. The good news is that I pretty much have a clean slate to work with, the only furniture I have is an antique buffet I painted white and my two new wingback chairs. I have a few ideas on how to approach it, but I am on the hunt for more.
We have so many options: bench seating? upholstered chairs? which style of table? I am not sure which direction we will go yet, but we are excited to start the journey!

Holly, if you did chairs on the side of the table where the ceilings are soaring, and a low or backless bench on the side with low ceilings, it might help to visually balance things more.

I can't wait to see the wingbacks with their new covers!!!!

i LOVE the last option, with the combination of dark wood and the white upholstered chairs! i have that picture saved on my computer as one of my favorite rooms!

it would look beautiful in your home!
