4 Ideas to Elevate Your Dining Space

News flash: It’s officially sweater weather. Spending more time indoors this winter means spending more time together. 

While we love snacking on the couch (no shame in the Netflix dinner game!), nothing beats coming together around the dining table and making intentional time for one another. Below, we’ve broken down several of our favorite dining table styles to bring fresh energy and functionality into your dining room. And remember, we can customize every single detail to design the perfect dining table for you. 

Also, speaking of cozy and toasty, our team’s favorite 100% homemade hot chocolate recipe is at the bottom of the post. Whip up a batch, gather around your new dining table, and enjoy! 

Polished Curves 

Opt for easy elegance with our Danu Dining Table. Featuring Danish-inspired design and a spacious, hand-carved table top, Danu is a subdued show stopper ideal for entertaining (and playing!). 

Airy Minimalism 

A quirky crowd pleaser, Stu balances intrigue and effortlessness with sculptural legs and a classic beveled edge table top. It’s a wonderful fit for bringing accessible minimalist design into your home. 

Modern Multifunctional 

If your dining table also needs to double as a work from home setup without sacrificing style, Plyned is an easy choice. Made from solid bamboo with triangle-carved legs, it’s equal parts industrial and chic and will inspire you to #GetItDone and have fun. 

Small Space Simplicity 

Just because your dining room is on the smaller side doesn’t mean it can’t feel intentional and elevated. If a traditional rectangular shape is hard-pressed to fit in your space, opt for round, square, and extendable designs (we offer a variety of all three!).
