One of the most frequented rooms of most houses, a place were all gather, even quests, the dining room is a place for the traditional, and the transitional to meet, with new materials and stunning authenticity, carving up the old world charm with the new world materials to bring this room into the modern era. Many folks are reclaiming old furniture, and tables and re-purposing them into new transitional pieces. Why not keep that flair alive with transitional art.
Such transitional are from David Bromstad, such as his "Sunrise" an eclectic look at the modern day sunrise with all the flare and design of a mid century artist, in today's bod and beautiful colors. A silver frame can bring this old world classical into the transitional arena, with the bold use of new material in the frame. Steel and copper can make a wonderful frame, and bring this piece alive.
Or with Erin Clark's "Manhattan Bridge Silhouette" and her use of classic black and white, if you frame this in a stainless steel frame, you will be making a bold statement in your decor, and providing a new twist on the old bridge, in this transitional flare.
