  1. If you love the look of the garth roberts raw table, take a look at the seguro coffee table at crate and barrel. http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family.aspx?c=985&f=10511

  2. Oooh, I love the one all the way at the top right. And the similar one with glass top below that. I’m looking for a new kitchen table (no dining room in my apt) and think many of these could work!

    i was just wondering what font you use in all these round-ups. mind sharing?


  4. belula says:

    Great ideas..great blog!!!

  5. grace says:

    sure thing- it’s “feel” script from veer.com :)


  6. Norine says:

    I am seriously thinking about getting this table from IKEA


    Vika Hyttan/Vika Fintorp.

    Does anyone have it or has anyone seen it live?

  7. brooke says:

    this is one i have been coveting for awhile: http://tinyurl.com/yvj2ou

  8. carrie says:

    I saw the bludot table (the “nick”) at abc home recently and fell in love. Great choice.

  9. Abby says:

    Norine —
    That tabletop is actually sold separately from the legs, so you can choose different sizes, finishes, height, etc. I actually bought just the legs and made my own top, since they didn’t have the size I wanted. The legs look great though, I love them.

  10. Suzanne says:

    ooooh! i love the driftwood dining table! how wonderful!

  11. Annemarie says:

    I have an oversized perfectly square table- didn’t see any like it on your list.

    But I can fit two people on each side comfortably, three if they’re petite, or just four chairs on each side. Similar to the Pier1 Latte table (page 61)

    My boyfriend has a big family so I like to be ready if they come around, but having an enormously long table at all times wouldn’t cut it for me.

  12. Grace,

    So lovely!!! I do love that Blue Dot table. I’m getting a hand me down but maybe in a few years I’ll get that one. I love your choices!!! Thanks for all the advice!

    p.s I’ll send you pics of the place soon. We move Friday!

  13. pve design says:

    this girl loves a good picnic table.

  14. Jen says:

    LOVE the Landon table, but I wish it was square and small enough to fit into my space. I’m looking for something to replace my current table. Isn’t there anything out there that can fit (with chairs) in a 4×4 space, expand to seat 6-8 people AND costs less than $300? ;-)

  15. Bridget says:

    Beautiful selection, I would also recommend the Odyessey table from CB2 for a kitchen option.

  16. Anna @ D16 says:

    Norine, I’ve seen this combo in person, and it does look great. If you’re like me and don’t mind the “patina” (read: scratches and fingerprints) that stainless steel is prone to, go for it! If you’re the type of person who obsesses over keeping things pristine and brand-new looking, don’t get a stainless steel table, because you will go insane. ;)

  17. kgh says:

    Norine, I have that Ikea table, and I love it. I paired it with a set of wooden Danish modern chairs. Anna is right on with mentioning scratches and smudges. You have to embrace the idea that the table will become a living history of all your dinners. But I think it looks like a much more expensive table than it is, and no one ever suspects its provenance.

  18. Theresa says:

    These tables are all beautiful. I bought a table a few years back and also purchased a protective table pad cover from http://www.tablepadfactory.com

    I would highly recommend them to all. They offer wholesale table pads at the best prices by far. They fit the table perfectly and are custom made to match your decor. Wonderful article and I will continue to look for more if your dining room tables. Table Pads for your dining room table are the best investment.

    Nice blog…great ideas…wonderful article…and beautiful dining table…

  20. Catherine Diao says:

    I tied to google the Haider natural dining table but couldnt find it? I like the bench and table combination. Any thoughts?

    1. grace says:


      sadly this guide was from 2008, so that table may no longer be sold. i would try calling the store to see if they have any leftovers, but it’s probably out of its run at this point.


  21. OH my! Fabulous spaces and designs of furniture!I must search over more of the designs Well In my room I carry glass pots and candles from Poland near by my Dinning table.Appreciable work really outstanding but might be complex.Any discussions.Thanks.

  22. Oh I love the different styles and some of them are definitely gorgeous pieces! I linked this to my “dining room tables” project post for inspiration!

  23. furniture says:

    Lots of choices! So hard to choose what to purchase. These tables are fascinating!

  24. natalie says:

    what chairs are shown with the parsons cb2 table?

  25. Love the table 2nd from below (poker + great for parties table) looks kind of classic but still has a lot of style.

  26. Choosing the perfect dining that are suited on our kitchen makes easy if we have guide like this. This serves also as a suggestion. Sometimes this is better than we think so that we can think twice rather having a guilt afterwards.
