An important part of any kitchen design, both aesthetically and functionally, are the dining table and chairs. They assist in sending a message about the kitchen's style, formality, comfort level and more.
As current trends continue to move toward an appreciation of natural materials and interesting textures, here is a collection of cool, new dining tables and chairs I spotted at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show.
Important considerations when purchasing a dining table and chairs for the kitchen are:
- size and shape based on lifestyle needs (does it need to expand?)
- maintenance of table top
- color, texture, materials coordination
- adequate space for movement around the table and chairs
- style relationship to kitchen and surrounding rooms
All images below are by me, and the brand names are below the images. Enjoy!
What a design statement a table and chairs can make!
