Not sure what style fits your aesthetic and home best when deciding which dining table to buy? Don't worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below for styling inspiration as you shop our curated line of designs.
Choosing a Dining or Kitchen Table
Different designs can work within varied spaces, from a traditional, long oak wood dining table to a retro-inspired breakfast table. You may be working with a large, open-concept room, a small-space kitchen, or a traditional dining room. So, you will first have to recognize how your table will fit into your space. Are you looking for an expansive tabletop to sit the entire family and host dinner parties with friends? Is it meant to be a bistro table placed in an eat-in kitchen? Or, will your table be a multifunctional spot that’s part dinner table and part workstation? Picture the space in use and how the features of a table can reflect and elevate this environment.
It is also helpful to keep in mind the other furniture and décor you plan to pair with it. Browse our dining chairs for inspiration on which pieces can complement each other. Styling mixed wood finishes can create lots of visual impact—like pairing a black dining table with light-finished chairs or a sideboard. Or a tonal palette and sculptural silhouettes all grounded by a rug can offer a soft, modern appeal.
Whether you're shopping for a whole space or folding a table into an existing look, find a common thread between the elements—material, finish, or style—to maintain a sense of unity and make the points of contrast feel intentional.
Finding a Dining Table Tailored to You
Every home comes in different sizes and shapes, appealing to different lifestyles. Choosing a dining or kitchen table is one of the most important decisions you will make when creating your home. So, to help you select the right one for your home, we've provided some table buying tips by space and purpose below.
Dining Room Tables for Statement Appeal
Dining room tables tend to have a more elegant air to them. They are designed to host guests and provide ample room for shared meals. These tables are usually more ornate when it comes to finishing touches since the fear of them being damaged is less likely. Think statement pieces like the Archer Dining Table by Sarah Sherman Samuel—the sculptural contrast of the legs and soft chunky lines of this black dining table makes it the perfect tone-setter for an edited space.
A round dining table or oval dining table can save space without compromising on style in a smaller dining room. If you have ample space, then a square or rectangle can fill up the area nicely while adding to the amount of tablespace for gathered occasions.
Kitchen Tables for Form and Function
A kitchen table needs to be sturdy enough to contend with the demands of daily living—kids doing homework, prepping food, and enjoying casual meals. Tall tables with bar chairs or a round dining table styled with side chairs instead of armchairs tend to be great options as kitchens are often dynamic environments used chiefly for family meals and quick bites.
Functional appeal does not mean dull design. Just check out our Yarissa Round Dining Table. This clean-lined oak dining table features a slim pedestal base that allows you to easily stow away chairs underneath when not in use.
Breakfast Tables for Signature Style
Breakfast nooks are a perennial trend we're loving right now. Whether a part of your kitchen or in a sunlit corner, transforming a space for brunches, small meals, or casual entertaining is a perfect way to elevate your home. It is also a great place to exercise a bit of design flair. These spaces tend to be smaller, so it is easy to achieve a tailored look—whether with a small, rustic wood dining table and chairs or a mixed material bistro dining set. Something like our Lillia Round Dining Table shows how a breakfast nook table can bring big style with a limited footprint.
Many breakfast nooks feature built-in seating for effortless flexibility. You can also add more seats by including a dining bench instead of individual chairs. Having a bench can free up the room since you can purchase one that fits snugly under the table after you've finished your meal.
Outdoor Dining Tables for Alfresco Living
The size, shape, and build of outdoor dining tables are almost as varied as indoor styles. Suppose you enjoy barbecues out on the deck. In that case, you can embrace the natural surroundings by opting for a versatile wood dining table. Alternatively, you can choose to create a contrasting look by incorporating an industrial-style material, like concrete. Just eating outdoors doesn't mean you have to sacrifice elegant design. View and shop our outdoor dining furniture to choose a dining set-up that reflects your interior home décor aesthetic.
Dining tables are an everyday essential that provide endless functionality while enriching your home's style and anchoring the room they are in. However you decide to style it, remember that your dining table allows you the flexibility to showcase your aesthetic with little touches of subtle design.
