The drool-worthy smells of sweet and savory delights are always enough to beckon holiday guests over to the dining room. Holiday feasts make the dining room one of the prime spots to gather, and it's the host's opportunity to make a major WOW statement with unique holiday-inspired furniture.
Here are three distinct holiday dining set-ups that are so chic and put-together, they'll drench you in holiday spirit awesomeness every time you enter the room.
It doesn't matter what part of town you live in — you can create a country cottage vibe with a dining table set like the Gramercy, which has comforting white and brown tones that create a subtly elegant environment. Woodsy materials made of solids and acacia veneers bring the outdoors in, and the weathered appearance looks perfectly lived-in.
To enhance the ambiance around the table with country cottage flair, go for a purely botanical palette when choosing fun and affordable home accessories. Quaint, pretty and oh-so-natural are where it's at for country cottage design. Add vases with frosted roses and baby's breath for a pop of sophistication.
A rug in brown, white or grey is a great complement to the table, while an iron and wood tray like the Vermont is the perfect serving dish for holiday cocktails and drinks. And nothing says “home” — no, literally — like wood décor in the shape of the actual word.
Having an adults-only affair, or want to turn little ones into mini-bon vivants? Give your San Diego dining room furniture an urban loft makeover with pieces that have clean and simple structures and that are practically minimal. Who says you can't have that city feel even if you live in the suburbs?
The centerpiece of an urban holiday-inspired room will be the big daddy of a table. We recommend finding one that's a hybrid of industrial materials like metal and wood, like the Boulevard table with solid acacia wood and a raw iron metal base. Using an industrial mix of materials like this allows you to pair a variety of chairs with the table — wood, metal or a combo.
Amp up the wood/metal ante with accouterments. Accessorize with urban fashion-inspired metal geometric candle holders like the Gael and wooden plates. Wondering how to make that iron and wood mirror more functional? A piece like the Haven can double as a centerpiece plate. Voilà!
No, we're not talking about the '90s here. 20th century decorating means paying homage to the early 1900s, a time when sophistication and class ruled. It was also a time when dining rooms were used much more regularly than they are today, and thus were revered and decorated accordingly. What better time of year to get a little fancy with your own dining room than the holidays?
Shop dining sets near me like the Hacienda that sports sleigh-like designs on the table legs, and fabric upholstered chairs bring the same comfort Santa's big ol' chair offers. Get even more of a vintage feel with the Berkshire dining set, which has the feel of 20th-century elegance that makes holidays a decidedly formal occasion. No ugly Christmas sweaters when you're seated at this bad boy.
When you opt for traditional with your dining room furniture, keep the decorations traditional, too. Add poinsettias to the table and potpourri pinecones to invite the feelings of holidays past. A glass hurricane candle holder really steals the show — check out the Lotus.
The holidays are the best time to upgrade your style, especially if you plan on hosting guests. An amazing holiday-inspired dining set will keep guests marveling. And if your cooking is less than perfect, hey, at least the atmosphere will be stunning.
