Making it Yours 13C: Möckelby Dining Table

Time for the last of three looks around IKEA’s new Möckelby dining table! The first let wallpaper be the star with everything else playing supporting roles. The second room had plenty of pink and gold, with neon for wit. And now, nothing says “welcome, we’re glad you’re here” like four busts of bald women — distressed and aged for that extra special touch. They go perfectly with the $80 length of dyed-blue rope. (Get a pair and hang them like sconces! I’m joking, but I’m also not. It would look awesome.)

Don’t worry. I tempered the crazy by including more traditional silverware, because gold or a more modern shape would just be too much.

Do you have a favorite from this edition of Making it Yours? I’m torn between the first two, I think.

Making it Yours 13B: Möckelby Dining Table

Sometimes I have a good idea of where I’m going with these Making it Yours looks, and sometimes the design shifts and changes along the way.

This is the second of three rooms put together around IKEA’s Möckelby table. We saw it paired with some amazing wallpaper last time, so I didn’t want to fall back to another wallpaper design this time. I knew I wanted to bring in that light (isn’t it fantastic?), but beyond that, I wasn’t sure where things would end up. Chairs were the next piece of the puzzle, and once I remembered the limited edition pink Arne Jacobsen chairs, everything fell into place.

Pink and gold! Modern, but with a nod to the past! Neon lights! Yes.

Making it Yours 13: Möckelby Dining Table

Time for a new edition of Making it Yours! By now you’ve probably seen the new IKEA catalog. Did you spot the new Möckelby oak dining table? Super well designed, great proportions, nice trestle detail, and sturdy looking. The kind of table that should last a long time and that can mix in with a variety of styles, and at a great price ($699). So we’re doing it up three different ways!

IKEA Möckelby Oak Dining Table

First up, it’s all about the newest wallpaper design by Julia Rothman for Hygge & West: Foret, in Midnight. Blue lining in the pair of pendant shades over the table would bring in the color a bit more, texture comes in through the dinnerware and a neutral rug, and black flatware and dining chairs ground the space.

For the table’s next look, I’m going to go more glam. Do we have a preference on metal finishes? Are you yearning for a return to cool, silvery finishes, or are you still crazy for gold, brass, and copper?
