The dining table is not only a gathering spot for family and friends, but also a focal point in the home. If you intend to shop for one you’ll have forever, you will probably want to buy only once.
A secondhand wood table with a farmhouse or industrial heritage has already passed the test of time. Any scratches and nicks in the tabletop surface have mellowed into design details, becoming features to admire.
If you want to be more flexible with your guests, pay attention to the leg width and where the legs are placed. In general, a table with thinner legs, or where the legs are at the corners, will make it easier to squeeze an extra chair in.
While its important not to go over the top, a well-presented dining room will always have an injection of colour. It doesnt have to be bright yellow. It could be a subtle light green with matching curtains that have a pop of pink in them.
