As summer turns to autumn, we’re swapping dining al fresco for the much-missed tradition of gathering around the dinner table. Which means we’re also turning our attention to our dining rooms, making them inviting for the coming seasons. Autumn and winter are all about gathering the family for warming dinners and long chats, so the dining room needs to be ready. For an intimate set up, try a smaller four-seater dining table with matching chairs and accent it with a statement overhanging light.
This works perfectly in spaces that are dual-function and act as a lounge/dining room, making the transition from dinner to coffee on the sofa seamless.
If you have more space to play with, there are grand dining table designs. Choose from styles with statuesque bases as well as those with commanding marble surfaces. Add extra comfort to your space with dining armchairs that allow your guests to relax. Finally, finish your dining room with a sideboard for housing fresh-cut autumn blooms or a lamp for atmospheric lighting.
