Dining tables are essential to any home. They gather guests, support meals, and tie a house together in a shared space. Our dining tables are handcrafted from carefully selected sustainable materials, including reclaimed wood and recycled metal, by artisans using old-world craftsmanship to add unique character.

Move your bookcases into the dining room (or your dining table into the living room) for a cozy library vibe. For a smaller change, try switching chairs, side tables or lamps between rooms for a new look.


We tend to think of that single design move as an accessory or add-on, rather than one of the primary pieces in the room. And without a doubt, the branches and candles help make this a very interesting dining room. But for me it’s the unique and arresting dining table that gets the prize. Dining table: Corsica, Joseph Jeup.


Of course, round bistro tables of as little as 2 ft. (61 cm) in diameter have been around a long time, and many breakfast tables are 42 in. or 48 in. (107 or 122 cm). But a formal dining table needs to be at least 60 in. (152 cm) in diameter and can easily be 72 in. (183 cm) as well.


This could be a favorite picture or painting, a chair with a fabric you love, a piece of clothing, a set of dishes or — as in the case of this dining room, perhaps — a collection of blue and white vases. The vases could easily have been the inspiration that determined the direction of this entire blue and white dining room.


A dining room table is an important part of your home. It’s a gathering place for friends and family to share jokes and stories over a delicious meal or a few refreshing drinks. A dining room table is the one place in which your guests generally end up spending the most time, and it plays an enormous role in every holiday event you host. Because it is such a vital piece of furniture, you should take time to consider the best designs before you choose.


This is the most traditional type of dining room table, and it’s also the most popular. The rectangular table is usually a minimum of 36 inches wide and is the best design for hosting large groups of people. This type of table design is also the best choice for long, narrow dining room areas or large eat in galley kitchen. A possible downside to this style of table is that it guests can be separated on either end; but you do have a “head” of the table.


This style of dining room table is slightly more modern and nontraditional than round or rectangular varieties. It’s a great choice for rooms that are square in shape, and can provide a more intimate dining experience with everyone in closer proximity than with a rectangular table. However, if the amount of table area you need may change from time to time, you can opt for a square table with leaves that turn it into a rectangle with more company comes to call.
