Get the Look: Niklas Hjalmarsson’s Dining Room

Last week, we shared a glimpse inside the home of (former) Blackhawks player, Niklas Hjalmarsson. (You can check out the full post here.) Located in Lakeview, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is now on the market, asking $3.199 million. The 4,600-square-foot residence features a brick and limestone exterior, with upscale finishes throughout the interior.

We especially loved the home’s dining room, which is anchored by a circular distressed wood table flanked with linen Louis XVI chairs. Other interior finishes include ceiling-to-floor window treatments and a bronzed gothic-style lantern light fixture. If you like this Lakeview dining room as much as we do, here’s how you can re-create the look in your own home!
