Dining Tables

3 Oct

So I’ve been thinking about getting a new dining table, the one we have right now was a hand me down and even though it’s only 48” diameter it still feels too big for the space.

I really love the idea of a parsons table, because I love the clean modern lines against our antique chairs.

West Elm has one I absolutely love

Although it’s only 32” I was hoping for 36” and an option to expand. But it’s a beauty and on sale!

Another option would be the Bjursta from IKEA which is expandable.

Although it doesn’t come in white, which I think I could live with.

I found a cheap one at Wal-Mart too, who knew. (try to ignore the ugly chairs)

After being set on a square table I did come across this cute knock off tulip table from Ikea.

I’m really loving the moderness of it. It just feels so clean.

I’d love to hear what you think. I’m kind of notorious for not being able to make decisions, so any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    I’ve always been a fan of the Saarinen table and the Ikea knockoff is definitely my favorite. I wish it was a little bigger; I would get it for my space. My friend has this one and the base is nice and sturdy.

    I am in the same exact situation as you. I have a 48″ PB round table and the mahogany rush seat montego chairs. I feel its too large for my space. I really want to buy a white tullip table but feel it may bit a bit modern for my space? Also if I buy the 42″ tulip table I will have to purchase a smaller scale chair, ugh! I will anxiously await what you decide……

      Decisions Decisions! I know how you feel, I think I’ll hit up Ikea this weekend and check out their options.

    I like the dark table with your light chairs. The option to expand would be nice. I like all of your choices.

    I found your blog through a comment at Overstock (I think) and I’m enjoying it! Thanks.
