Our Favourite: Dining Tables

We bought our first house two years ago now and I remember there being tons of stuff we needed to buy but the purchase I was most excited about was the dining table. Having previously lived in small rented flats, we never had any dining furniture let alone a room dedicated to the cause. Consequently it was one of the first things we bought. I figured it was an investment, one that would pay for itself after the first year – you see by eating in and having friends over for tea and drinks we’d save money by not going out as often, or at least that was the idea…

My dining room furniture choices were inspired by the cover of ‘Simply Scandinavian’ by Sara Norman, a book showcasing the very best of Scandi interiors. Unable to find (or more likely afford) the exact table I found a very similar one, from Made.com for only £299. There’s plenty of choice out there though, take a look at some of our favourites below. As you can see the industrial style seems to be trending at the moment, I’m quite keen on the refectory table on wheels from Rose and Grey.

    Want them all. Sadly don’t have the luxury of multiple dining rooms or endless bags of cash.

    Paul has his heart set on making a table from the wood from the knackered eaves we took out…we’ll see how that turns out and if all else fails, trusty made.com it is!

    Ah, I feel your pain Heather – we have many an aspirational DIY project on the list (garden gate, reclaimed kitchen shelving) – seem like they should be easy until you get down to it and realise that those joinery / carpenter types actually know what they’re doing…
