Dining Design Tip #1

Select the Right Shape

Dining tables with a pedestal base offer lots of leg room and can feel intimate and cozy. Plus, you can tuck in an extra seat or two around the holidays for extra guests. A square table is ideal for four, with each diner equidistant, facilitating conversation. Need more room? Put two square dining tables together to create a rectangular table shape.​

Pick the Perfect Size

Consider the size of the room. You will need at least three feet between the edge of your dining table and other furniture or the wall. For small spaces, use banquette seating around the table to maximize your footprint.​

Dining Design Tip #3

Have a Seat

Decide on how many people you’d like to accommodate at your table. More narrow dining chairs are typically armless and can accommodate more people, whereas armchairs create a cozier look and feel.​

Find Your Style

Consider your aesthetic – contemporary, modern, transitional or traditional – you can also mix styles to create a more eclectic look. Your choice of textile can also help you create your own personal look.

Do you Multitask?

Today our dining rooms double as workspace or school room, so consider the comfort and support of your dining chair. Of note, an armchair is a great choice for work from home. Performance textiles are also a good option for multi-use spaces that get a lot of use.
