You can't go wrong with a classic country table. Generally, the country‐style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust. They also have an uncomplicated design suitable for most schemes, although, pleasingly, many country tables feature elegantly turned legs that support the tabletop. The only real consideration in buying this style of table is whether to go for an upmarket one, such as a French colonial table, or one with the rustic appeal of an English country farmhouse. Whatever you choose to suit your home, you can be assured that both will look drop‐dead gorgeous when they are set and dressed for a country farmhouse feast.
Corner bench and slipcovered armchair and chandelier. Carve out a breakfast nook that exudes easy elegance with a comfy bench seat plumped up with plenty of pillows, a real armchair and a classic chandelier. Choose a chair with an upright profile for more comfortable seating at the table, and be sure to pick a washable slipcover to make your life easier.
Smoky glass chandelier. Smoky glass paired with filament bulbs creates a one‐two ambience punch that is ideal for intimate dinner parties. In the dining space shown here, the sculptural chandelier is complemented by a smooth walnut dining table and midcentury teak chairs.
