The fall and winter holidays are fast approaching, and the memories made and shared around the table during this season are priceless. We want to inspire your most beautiful holiday memories yet. A beautiful dinner starts with the perfect table. While the options may seem endless, thoughtful consideration of your family’s needs will help you narrow it down to the table that’s just right for you.
Do you have a grand dining room where you entertain a dozen or more guests at a time or do you spend most dinner parties with a more intimate group? Houzz has a great article with detailed guides on how to measure your room. Here are some general rules to get you started.
Round tables, particularly those with a pedestal base, maximize seating in a more intimate space.
Dining tables that include a leaf are perfect for the host or hostess whose needs change throughout the year.
The seating options you choose also impact how many people can fit around your table.
Place sleek chairs along the sides of a rectangular table and cap each end with a stately arm chair to maximize your table space.
Add a settee to break up the look.
Plush armchair styles take up more space, but they also make a table instantly inviting.
Material is also an important factor to consider.
A wood tabletop is the most classic choice.
If you like an eclectic look, consider using a natural stone, like marble, to add an unexpected texture.
A glass table always looks elegantly modern.
