Dining Room / June 7, 2018 / Leah Venegas.
Look at the phenomenal details on this dining table! Feature moldings and a high-gloss wood top are just the perfect combination for a more heritage look. The great things about antique tables is that you can pretty much guarantee that nobody else has the exact same one!
You have GOT to think about who will be sitting on these chairs! Everybody has a different shape, so you can't simply choose a set of slim stools that will work for you and ignore potentially larger members of the family! Ergonomic seating is a great idea, so you might be interested to take a look at molded plastic, as seen here!
Integrated kitchen and dining areas are quite the trend nowadays, particularly in homes where floor space is a premium. In such cases, introducing a sleek table that is fixed to the wall at one end can be a smart move. Team it up with modern and discreet stools which can be stashed away under the table when not in use, and hence leave more space for movement. Add a couple of vibrant artworks on the wall or a potted green in the corner to jazz things up.
Finally, how stringent are you about having a perfectly matching set of chairs? Maybe it would work a little better to give the kids a bench seat to enjoy, while you and the other adults all have proper chairs? Or maybe you all want a personalised vintage chair that you've painted yourself? Either way, get out of the mindset that each chair has to be exactly the same.
