Head for red
Looking to buy dining furniture but not sure which set will work best in your home? Whether it’ll host regular family mealtimes and celebrations with friends, or be somewhere for the kids to spread out and do school work, you want your dining table to look fantastic and suit the needs of your family; now and in the future. Read our handy room-by-room guide, to help you choose the right dining table set for your home.
No matter the particular species, a new hardwood dining room chair is going to be moderately expensive. Because you’ll need at least four of them, the price is certainly a major consideration when shopping around. Tables are just as expensive, but most only need one of them. The combination of table and chairs makes up the most basic dining room set. Most people will purchase at least these items together for both cohesion and the slightly lower price you get when buying a set, as well.
An oak dining table and chairs set is a durable choice and great value for money. Solid oak will age naturally and the daily wear and tear of family life will only add to its character. Another advantage of oak dining sets is that they can be repaired, re-sanded and re-oiled if necessary, so they really are a table for life.
Perk up with pattern
Choose complementary colours for a palette that’s pleasing to the eye. Vibrant orange will always pack a punch in a dining room, but introduce it through a circular motif wallpaper and the effect is all the more intense. Counterbalance with blue tableware and a single velvet statement chair in cobalt to stand out and harmonise. Enhance the relaxed retro vibe with on-trend mid-century style furniture.
