With the holidays in mind, creating a beautiful setting for dining is at the top of many of our to to lists, and at the center of every dining experience should be the perfect table. Round tables especially give a sense of intimacy you just can't get from a rectangular or square table. To give you some great ideas of the price range in quality round dining tables, Susi chose this Friday Finds to highlight them from Low to High.
Bayberry Pedestal Table Dark Cherry Low: $212
Broyhill Color Round Oval Pedestal Table Mid: $600
Buster Espresso Pedestal Table High $999
If everyone gathers for holidays and special events at your place, you have every right to splurge a bit and go for a more formal dining experience. Square dining tables and rectangular formal dining tables work best for larger groups to ensure comfort for your family and guests with a little elbow room to spare.
The Buster 60” Square Espresso Dining Table offers the area a larger gathering demands. Add fabric upholstered chairs or if you like to mix things up look try the modern Panton chair or a classic tulip chair in white. Both chairs are comfortable and easy to slide in and out from the table and work great for lots of people coming and going.
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.
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.
Blu Dot is on my hit list of favorites for the second time this week. This organic looking forked stainless steel Sprout Table caught my eye. It may have been conceived in the designer’s mind simply as a round dining table, but I need a new desk, and I think this will do the trick!
Making my choice difficult, it’s available in three cool colors: a bright yellow that reminds me of a yield sign; a subtle ivory--great looking in contrast to the shiny base; and the unwavering tried and true basic black. I'm going for a black and white home office, check out the one on the Design Public blog. I think as far as round dining tables go, aka computer desks, it’s going to be the ivory. Which is your favorite?
