We like the play of black and white elements and the contrasting textures in this graphic Scandinavian dining room by Australian stylist Deborah Mclean of Busy Being Fabulous (originally spotted on Emmas Designblogg). Recreate the look with the following elements:

Above: The classic Saucer Lamp by George Nelson is available in small (17.5 inches in diameter) for $269, medium (25 inches in diameter) for $329, and large (36 inches in diameter) for $435 at Ylighting.

Above: Laura Laviva sources her cowhide rugs from Brazil, "which produces the world’s highest quality hides," she says. "The leather is extremely supple and has a great sheen. Additionally, there is none of the smell from tanning solutions so often present with other cowhides." The Brazilian Black Cowhide Rug from L'aviva Home is approximately 7 feet by 7.5 feet and is $545.

Above: Wegner's Wishbone Chair is available in several finishes and is available for immediate shipping; $699 at Hive Modern.
