Practicing Gratitude and Prepping the Table

This Thanksgiving it feels appropriate to double down on gratitude and being appreciative of the good that we have in our lives. While it has been (and continues to be) a uniquely challenging year, focusing on what brings us joy can truly help lift our spirits.

Speaking of spirits, we are currently coveting these combinations of dining chairs and tables where we would love to share a toast to better times ahead. Santé!


Traditional with a Twist

A symbol of rebirth is found on this gorgeous set of Neoclassical dining chairs with gold ouroboros as part of the design.  Upholstered in neutral hues, the seat is both comfortable and adds a unique finishing touch.

We think the set would pair beautifully with a classic round dining table in stunning mahogany. This piece holds its own on the style front but it does so in a subtle way that allows the chairs to shine.

A Feminine Touch

Upholstered in the softest blush hue, these elegant French dining chairs are eye catching to say the least. Make a statement with intricately carved bleached oak and delicately curved legs.

The inherent charm of the dining chairs would only be elevated when situated around a double pedestal Georgian style table. With plenty of room for a grand meal, the natural beauty of mahogany is on full display in this fine dining table.

The Future is Bright

The sleek modern lines of Artistica Home’s Bento chair pairs with lush upholstery to create a refined, appealing and extremely comfortable dining experience. While this look is quite versatile and would add sophistication to many styles of dining table, we particularly love the effect when combined with a retro-futuristic piece.

Designed in the 1970s with the future in mind, this impressive piece by iconic designer Karl Springer, this chrome is a true show stopper that will give your dining room a bold modern look in one easy piece.

Natural Elegance

Rattan gives these modern angular dining chairs a soft and  organic feel. The mix of metal with the natural woven element creates a complex textured yet easy and laid back look.

We love the effect when matched with a thoroughly minimalistic sleek glass and metal dining table. Keep the rest of the room neutral for a luxe polished look or add colorful art or accessories for a bold feel.

Midas Touch

Get the conversation going with these ultra luxe gold dining chairs by Doug& Gene. Clean lines paired with unique texture creates a dashing and distinguished look.

We love these remarkable chairs paired with a classic Paul McCobb dining table. The gold of the chairs brings out the natural beauty of the wood of the table and the graceful lines of the table allow the chairs to show off to maximum effect.
