dining furniture designs
Our Andrews Natural Cherry Buffet & Hutch

With so many styles and designs out there today, sometimes it can be hard to keep it straight. We’ve got 4 of the most popular dining furniture designs and we’re breaking each one down.

I realized recently that I write a lot about the different styles and designs of our furniture but I don’t ever really go into detail about each one. Let me change that. I’m here to give a little insight into dining furniture designs. Today we’ll look at Mission-Craftsman design, Shaker furniture, Modern and Traditional design.

Spring Has Sprung and Now’s the Time to Upgrade Your Dining Space During our Dining Furniture Sale.

I’ve noticed recently there seems to be a great divide within the dining space world: formal dining room versus eat-in kitchen. Most homes that I’ve been to recently seem to have a combination of the two. Homes are now designed or renovated with an open kitchen that flows into a designated dining space, but they are no longer separate entities.

Our French Country Dining Table and Round Back Chairs

We always put so much focus on the tabletop, but what about those legs?

I’m a perfectionist by nature and attention to detail has always been something I pride myself on. That being said, it can make doing things, like shopping for a new dining table, a challenge sometimes. I tend to be really indecisive because I like knowing what I’m choosing is the best possible product for me. I take everything from color, material used, shape, size and design into consideration. But what about the base of a table? It can aesthetically make or break a room, so why do the table tops get all of the attention?

When Versatility, Functionality and Simplicity Come Together the Result Can Be Beautiful.

Living in what I consider a “Tiny House” (900 sq ft), I’ve come to appreciate furniture that both serves its functional purpose and offers added bonuses (space saving or storage). I like pieces that are simple in design and neutral in style. I use artwork, paint and home decor to tie my personality into each room’s theme.

One space I’ve never really focused on is my dining space. I’m always on the go so when I have time to sit down and eat my meal at the kitchen table, I often have my laptop in front of me and my phone next to me. I don’t take the time to appreciate the space.

As we’ve rolled out our Holiday Dining Furniture Sale, I’ve been thinking more and more about my dining space and how it needs more of my attention. Through my time working on the current sale, I came across our Classic Shaker Dining Tables and found the table I never knew I was missing: the Classic Shaker Square Dining Table.

I love the simplicity of its design. The tapered legs give it an airy feeling and the design allows it to fit into almost any space. I can already imagine myself enjoying meals at it and decorating it with flowers and candle centerpieces.

Not wanting to forfeit more square footage than necessary, I love that it comes with different size options from 30 x 30 (perfect for me) up to 60 x 60 (for someone with more space to host). Offering versatility it comes with either a solid or extension top and comes with an array of Finish options. You can also choose from beveled or eased edges on the table top.

If you’re not as excited about squares as I am, or if you want a little more fluidity from the design, the table comes with round table top options and flared leg options.

For a chair pairing, I gravitate towards the traditional Windsor Style chairs, in particular the Windsor-Style Guest Chairs. The style is classic and the spindle back gives it an open and light feeling.

If you have more space to work with and are not looking for a square or round table, you might be interested in our Classic Shaker Dining Table. It evokes the same sense of style but is rectangular and is available in sizes from 30 x 48 to 48 x 108.

Working with a small space can be tricky, but here at Vermont Woods Studios we do have options for you. You don’t need to compromise your style because of the size of your space.

During our Holiday Dining Room Furniture Sale, you can save on these tables, chairs and more! Save 10% off one piece, 15% off two pieces and 20% off three or more pieces.

Our friendly sales team is always here to assist you with any questions you may have. You can call us toll free at 888-390-5571 or visit us at our Vernon, VT Showroom.

Modern American Dining Furniture

Looking for real hardwood dining furniture?

Authentic, solid wood dining furniture can be difficult to find. The Internet often times misleads customers into thinking that all furniture websites carry real hardwood dining furniture.

At Vermont Woods Studios we work extremely hard to educate our customers about quality wood furniture, and make them aware of the benefits of buying it.

All of our fine wood furniture is crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested natural cherry, maple, oak, or walnut woods.
