sneak peek best of: dining rooms (round tables)

by Grace Bonney

i feel like i spend most of my furniture day dreaming time thinking about long farm tables for my dining room. well, the dining room i’ll hopefully have one day. right now we’re lucky to fit a tiny ikea table inside our dining area, but one day i’m going to have a huge wooden table with a dramatic chandelier where all of my friends and family can gather to eat. until then, i’ll keep day dreaming about all of the dining rooms i love and how i could incorporate parts of them into my own dream room. so today i thought i’d post another sneak peek “best of” devoted to dining rooms. because i had too many favorites (50+) to put in one post, i broke them apart into two guides. one with round tables (today) and one with square or rectangular tables (coming soon). round tables are so great for small spaces so i thought i’d start with them, since so many of us are living in less than giant spaces. stay tuned for the rectangular and square dining room table roundup soon. until then, happy dining!
