For 2017 I am still loving rich stained woods in all forms… and especially on dining tables. We are scheming up ways to get our dining room back over here, so I have dining rooms (and other spaces!!) on the brain. Incorporating a beautifully stained dining table adds a touch of warmth and luxe & mixing in other wood tones and finishes only adds to the feel. As always, my advice is to stay away from the “set”. You will get more longevity out of pieces bought individually. And if you already have the “set”, try adding in different head chairs or replacing two of the side chairs with an upholstered bench
Here are three of my favorite wood tables of the moment. And bonus, all are under $1000.
