Dining Tables with Benches for Every Style

One of the biggest trends we've seen lately in interior design is the desire to shift to more livable and comfortable spaces, especially when it comes to dining. People tend to be moving away from the traditional dining room in favor of a dining space that is more casual and functional. There's no need for formal place settings in these spaces as they have more of a come-as-you-are kind of feel. A great way to get this casual look with all the style you crave is with a dining table and bench combo. Here are five of our favorites.

The Modern Farmhouse Dining Room

Modern farmhouse style is one of the hottest trends going in dining rooms. One of the reasons it’s so appealing is that the casual look makes it a livable design. Farmhouse tables are so easy to care for, and they allow for worry-free dining. Distressed and weathered woods paired with details such as linen, nail heads, and accessories in sleek metal, are a combination that makes a dining space welcoming and timeless.

Though light and airy, this space is grounded by the black base of the table. Mix and match chairs dress up the space without making it feel too fussy. A chandelier with a Greek Key design and a bold rug add a modern touch.

The modern farmhouse look is all about texture and contrast. You just can’t go wrong with a distressed white table. Dining chairs in sophisticated grey add modern flair. These are sleek and simple, which lends itself to modern design.

Distressed wood can have a modern look with the right design. These chairs have clean lines and a graphic punch. Metal accessories and light fixtures balance out all the wood in the space, and a seagrass rug adds an organic touch.

Even a small space can have a modern farmhouse vibe. In this dining space we see a modern take on oak. Clean lines and a contemporary design have these pieces on trend. The sideboard features a sliding door, which mimics the ever-popular barn style door, and the black base of the table gives it a finished look.

 

Farmhouse style isn’t just for the traditional home. When combined with the right elements, it can fit right in to modern spaces. Giving it some modern touches makes the whole look more polished with a chic edge. The beauty is found in the natural look, and it reflects a way of living that’s real. Visit our showroom for more ways to add this look to your home!

The Well Designed Dining Space

When a dining space is well designed, it will serve your home and family well. That space might be a designated dining room or an open floor plan with an eat-in kitchen. What’s important is that you choose the right pieces for how you want the space to function and create a dining area that’s both comfortable and stylish so that you can make the most of every meal.

If you like to entertain, then consider café style seating. It’s cozy, intimate, and comfortable. These tufted benches work well wrapped around a pedestal table or against a large window. Use an “L” shape and combine it with a pair of pretty chairs, or simply mix a small bench in on one side of the table.

A round pedestal table is always a great option, especially in a square space or an area with a bay window. Chair legs won’t bump into table legs, and there’s plenty of room to squeeze in extra chairs for guests. A round table also makes for easy conversation with anyone at the table.

Sometimes the dinner table is the hub of the home. In that case, choose a table made with heavy duty materials for worry free use. This one features a concrete top which means it can stand up to lots of use. School projects and dinner parties will be no match for this hardworking material. Plus it adds another texture to the space, and that always makes a room more interesting.

If you often have last minute dinner parties, then choose a table that’s easily adjusted to accommodate more people. This table features self-storing refectory leaves. They’re attached to the table at both ends and are easily pulled out to allow for four more chairs. Bonus: you never have to find a place to store the leaves, since they’re always attached to the table!

Think about your storage needs. If you have a lot of dishes to display, then go with a china cabinet. If you prefer to have casual dinners with easy access to things while you’re dining, then go with a sideboard. Not only can items be stored out of sight but you can keep side dishes and wine bottles within reach for casual and comfortable dinners.

 

Your dining space should be designed with function and style. Consider how you use it, don’t be afraid to mix and match pieces, and layer textures for a chic look.
