From family meals to date-night dinners, your dining table is most definitely the heart of the home. An essential feature of your dining room or kitchen, dining tables aren’t just destined for mealtimes and are the perfect spot for doing homework, crafting, baking, and much more.
Whether you have a dedicated dining room space or a kitchen/diner, the first thing to consider when choosing your table is how much space you have to play with and how many people you want to fit round it on a regular basis.
We offer a wide range of solid hardwood dining sets, with a choice of sizes, including useful extendable tables that are ideal for special occasions when you host extra guests.
Whatever your taste, we’ve got a table that’s right for you – from industrial-style designs and painted ranges, to glass-topped contemporary and rustic farmhouse-inspired tables, with a choice of chairs and benches.
Read on for inspiration on how to style your table and the space around – perfect for bookmarking when you’re ready to purchase the table of your dreams.
Brooklyn dining set | @bellway_easton
Add a touch of industrial style to your home with the Brooklyn dining set, bringing together beautiful natural wood with galvanised metal details. The fusion of the two materials creates a modern loft aesthetic that’s perfect teamed with exposed brick and contemporary green tones.
Table for two
Dorset dining table | @home_of_roberts
Whether you’re enjoying mid-week dinners or dedicated date nights, make mealtimes an occasion by setting the table. Our natural oak tables are the ultimate blank canvas and lend themselves to all kinds of styling set-ups. Go for a retro, pared-back look with vintage-style crockery and natural accessories.
Highgate dining set | @mo_morshuis
Make your dining space an extension of your garden by adding a menagerie of houseplants. The inky blue and natural oak tones of our Highgate dining table look lovely paired with the different greens of indoor plants. Pick up tips and inspiration in our decorating with plants blog.
St. Ives dining set | St. Ives dresser | St. Ives console table | St. Ives sideboard
Create a cohesive dining room look by choosing coordinating pieces from the same range. The warm grey tones of our painted St. Ives range adds a bit of warm country style that works perfectly in modern homes and period properties alike.
Orrick dining table | @thetraditionalhome
Beautiful white blooms make a striking centrepiece on your dining table and are especially attractive teamed with our natural oak furniture. Hang understated art to complete the look and transform your dining area into a welcoming and stylish space.
Cool blue dining
Shay dining table | Romsey small bookcase
Whites and greys are incredibly refreshing colours, however, the starkness of white alone can often leave a clinical feel. Pair your Shay dining set with layers of similar hues – be it tonal greys or sea glass blues – for a natural look that injects laidback coastal vibes into your space.
Go for green
Parquet table | @hausfifteen
Whether you love muted mint, sublime olive, or statement darks, green is a hugely popular choice when it comes to wall colour. Transform your dining room into a happy space for mealtimes with cheery green walls that look just right teamed with our Parquet table.
Shay dining set | @athomewithsamantha
Channel the cottagecore trend into your dining space with our Shay dining set. The gingham fabric chairs and curtains add a hint of farmhouse chic that pairs beautifully with the cream painted furniture and neutral yet homely accessories.
Embrace natural light
Dorset dining table | @our_claytoncorner_
Place your dining table and chairs as close to natural light sources as possible to allow the sun’s rays to flow in all day long. Not only can you enjoy mealtimes in this light-filled space but it’s also a calming spot for afternoon cuppas, post-school snacks and homework hubs.
Romsey extendable dining table | Scroll Back dining chair | Romsey small dresser | Romsey tallboy
Our Romsey range, with its soft rounded corners and simple design, is the perfect choice for busy family homes. The understated modern range teams beautifully with bright coloured accessories and design details that complement the natural oak and add a fun and playful finish to the room.
