Dining Rooms for Dinner Parties

I had such a lovely evening celebrating my bestie‘s birthday party in New York yesterday and it made me think of how important it is to have a space that’s large enough to entertain in but cozy enough to feel intimate and special. You know, something along these lines…

…each with enough room for six or eight to eat comfortably and a fabulous piece of statement artwork that gets the conversation going if the wine doesn’t. Which is your favorite?

  1. Couldn’t agree more! I like my expandable Ikea table. Maybe not my top decorating choice, but it’s great for a small apartament and un-expanded it remains a cozy little table for my boyfriend and me.

  2. Oooh, lovely! I had a dinner party last night, and we just shoved two tables together and used a mishmosh of chairs. These pictures are something to aspire to.

  3. Oooh, I love that oversized drum pendant!
