Casual Dining Tables for Entertaining

If you like to entertain and keep family and friends close on a regular basis, you definitely need  a comfortable spot to gather for those Sunday evening dinners, brunches with the girls or romantic dinners for two. It’s true many casual dining tables offer a great way to bring everyone together, but one in particular is a dream come true for those with spatial issues or lots of friends and family.

Modloft Spring Dining Table

The Modloft Spring Dining Table takes the top spot on our list of glass dining tables for its unbelievable functionality and beauty. From a small four place dinette to a large eight place dining table, the extention feature on the Modloft alone might win you over. Equally, as impressive is its base and trim design from Malaysian Oak in a Wenge finish and frosted checkered glass extension tops. Unexpected guests will never be an issue, the extension mechanism glides smoothly into perfect alignment within seconds,  giving you the extra space you need at a moment’s notice.

What Do the French and Swedish Have in Common?

Wisteria Linen  European Furniture - Natural Linen Settee W2506

This brilliant settee from Wisteria!  French provincial never looked so good than dressed up with a little Louis XV grandeur then subdued by Swedish-style linen. The curvy elegance of this settee is situated atop carved cabriole legs made of distressed wood. Two pillows are included for a bit of extra comfort. Use in place of a traditional living room sofa and pair with a couple of French chairs.

Even if you don’t own a manor house in the French countryside, you can pull off the look by pairing this beauty with patinaed metals, woven chair backs and seats and gold-gilded mirrors. If you have dreams of visiting Paris one day, tide yourself over by adding a touch of French style to your home.

Carry the French theme throughout your space with additional living room furniture that compliments your heavenly settee. Here’s our picks for a fabulous room…

Armoire - Wynwood Furniture - 1593-77

Paris Flea 
Golden Teak Eighteen-Light Chandelier

   

Old world style and romantic charm meet modern functionality in this patina-finished amoire. Pictured in Honey Ash by Wynwood.

Add a touch of the unexpected to your living room with this exquisite Paris Flea Golden Teak Eighteen-Light chandelier (if you thought that was a mouth full try saying it in French). This one is to completely die for.  So what if the chandelier costs more than your settee…if the $3,600 price tag doesn’t fit your budget take a look at some similar items that might. 

Ethan Allen may not be of French descent but he did one heck of a job fooling us with this antique-washed Kashan Rug in muted shades of soft green, khaki and terra-cotta. Get one for your room. Your feet will thank you and think they’ve just walked through a Persian garden.  Enjoy  the spoils of a perfectly-posh Parisian existence!
