Dining Room Furniture That Fits

Think Big

Big meals may be bad for your waistline but big furniture is a whole other animal. When space allows, make the most of it with furniture that fills the space to keep things comfy. After all, a dining room is meant to be a welcoming place where friends and family gather to enjoy a meal and each other's company.

Big Ideas for Your Big Space

1. Worth its weight
A spacious dining room calls for pieces that bear a bit more visual weight. Look for sets that include anything from upholstered armchairs and double-pedestal tables to servers and china cabinets.

2. Scale back on the small pieces
It's true you want your dining furniture to match the scale of your room size. Avoid choosing several small pieces versus one or two large pieces or else your space will feel cluttered.

3. Extend the welcome
Ease the challenges of feeding a crowd with an extendable dining table. Most models feature self-storing leaves, which are easy to add when guests are coming over and won't take up space in your closet.

4. Take help where you can
Filling in the gaps in a large dining room is as simple as introducing a server or china cabinet. Not only are these items ideal for storing dishware and table linens, they're also extremely helpful if you frequently host buffet-style dinner parties.

Big Deals

A large, formal dining room calls for grand furniture with heavy, turned legs and special details that stir up conversation. We also love pieces that invite guests to linger a little longer around the table like comfy, oversized chairs with cushioned seats. (Speaking of chairs, consider ones upholstered in microfiber to make clean ups a breeze.)
