Be Our Guest


Dining areas come in all shapes and sizes so it is important to let your space dictate what furniture you need to fill it. Is it a high traffic area because it is part of an open floor plan? Is it a multi-purpose room? Or maybe it's a formal room that is only used on special occasions. Either way it will be an area where people will gather, so make it fun, functional, and most importantly make it you!

Size Matters || Be mindful of the size of the dining table that you choose; measure twice, buy once. In an area where you will be entertaining, you want the ease of movement. The shape of the table will be unique to your space and design aesthetic, just remember to keep it consistent with the rest of your home so it flows.

Choose Your Chairs || They don't need to match; they just need to look good next to each other. Try mixing hard and soft materials like tufted with wood. Another fun way to mix it up is with the style of the chair. Incorporating a bench into your table design is a great way to create a sense of intimacy. On the flip side, barstools can be a stylish space saver and great to have on hand when you have more guests than expected.

Set the Mood || Lighting is an art form of its own and will set the tone of your dining area. Choose a light fixture that fits the style of your space so it doesn't compete with your overall design. Add ambiance with a dimmer function.

Make it Yours || This is the space where stories are told and memories are made. Create intrigue with wall décor or another piece of furniture. Unique artwork can be a great conversation starter and bar carts are a stylish way to keep the good times flowing!
