At the request of the magazine, the architects shared their opinions on selected tables and canteens.

Architect Yevgenia Orlovskaya: “This front dining room is eclectic. In its forms, the influence of early classicism is guessed, and the decor is typical for the Empire style. For example, this element of two leaves and a rosette in the center is a favorite ornament of the great architect Karl Ivanovich Rossi and is found in almost every interior. It is worth noting well-chosen color palette of the dining room. The combination of gold and ivory was used in ancient Greece. The famous Hrisoelle - phantin technique combined bone and precious metal in statues of ancient gods. ”

Architect Natalya Kuznetsova: “The design of this dining room resembles the style of London lofts with imitation of art objects plaster-plastered, and the Belgian restraint, built on coarse natural textures and neutral colors. the mixture of styles used here, when the classical form is complemented by modern design techniques. At the same time, the whole composition, built on nuances, gives the impression of a soft, calm and very pleasant. Such furniture is easy to imagine in a country house and in residential urban spaces. ”

Architect Elena Chitkarova: “A wonderful dining room in the style of the 40s – 50s of the 20th century. The same famous American style, which replaced the Art Deco and marked the era of new chic. It is characterized by concise forms, clear geometry and more restrained and even character than its predecessor, but still it relies on luxury and noble materials. This dining group is of strict forms. The decor on the table legs and the slight bending of the backs of the chairs remind of Art Deco. I am impressed by the contrasting combination of matte white leather and polished table surface. And I am glad that such a refined and strict style is back in fashion. ”

Architect Fyodor Raschevsky: “I like the proportions of this table. They are simple, strict and have a good ratio of the thickness of the tabletop and legs. Here, a sense of proportion and beautifully drawn lines are observed, which sets the right, refined atmosphere. The veneer layout on the tabletop is made in the form of a star. But the main thing is the round shape of the table. She is perfect, has to communicate and a pleasant meal. The circle is the most ancient form in the dwelling: initially it was the hearth around which the family gathered. The round table symbolizes the equality of all those sitting behind it. By virtue of its restraint, this table is quite versatile, and it is easy to imagine it, for example, with serving in the baroque spirit. ”
