As a dining room furniture retailer, Esquire Interiors we know there are many styles, including formal, traditional, farmhouse, coastal, and cottage, among others. The biggest question we hear in our furniture showroom
is whether or not it’s possible to have an eating table in today’s often open layouts. Often what you see is one big space with a living room and maybe an eating counter. The truth is you can have a table, with a little imagination and a couple of area rugs to divide and define the space.
The ultimate decision will depend upon your home’s overall style. If your home’s overall decor is sleek and modern, a farmhouse dining room would most likely clash. Nothing needs to match, but everything should work well together.
If you want formal, know that it’s often a table with matching chairs. The table is usually a square or a rectangle. Design can be elaborate with ornamentation or inlays. You might also include wall hangings or artwork, as well as sideboards.
