If making your friends and family feel at ease around the dining table is important to you, then you’re sure to love our recipe for dining in comfort. Just like you, we relish the chance to slow things down, enjoy a delicious meal and connect with guests. Many things go into making a relaxing get-together, not the least of which are good company and good food. But above all, be sure there’s plenty of luxurious seating on hand to keep your guests at your table for hours!
Many homes today are not outfitted with a designated space for formal dining—but if you love hosting dinners, then don't let this stop you. With the right pieces in place, your great room can turn formal in a flash. A table with leaves is a must—when you're not hosting, you'll need it to take up minimal space. Likewise, your other furniture should be able to flex when not in use. A sofa table can provide serving space, and consider a pair of accent chairs for seating.
Don't forget candles for those special occasions. Whatever source you choose for lighting, make sure it has a dimmer switch, so that you can adjust the amount of light you need. One rule of thumb for hanging chandeliers: there should be at least 34" inches of clearance space between the chandelier and the table. If it is a wider chandelier, make sure that people won't bump their heads when getting up or sitting down.
We all know that a dining room needs a table and chairs. But what kind of a table and which chairs? What else might be needed in your dining room? A china cabinet? Sideboards? Serving carts? Or some other kind of storage, because your dining room also doubles as your home-office? How big is your dining room? Do you have a large space at your disposal? A cavernous room with a small table will look cold and empty, while a too small space with a large table and chairs will seem unpleasantly crowded. Always measure your room before buying furniture, and remember to leave enough room around your furniture to move around easily.
