Dining Room: Top 10 Rectangular Tables

I seem to gravitate towards rectangular tables for day-to-day living, although my sense is that a round or square option might work better in our space. We won’t really know until the kitchen is fully mapped out, but for now I’ll run through the different options – starting with rectangular pieces.

There are lots of amazing tables at really different price points. Sometimes an old farm table looks just as good as some high-end designer piece. If I had to choose, I’d spend on great chairs and find a pretty basic option for the table. But, if I were to go all out, I’d pick up one of these:

Below: I adore Cecilie Manz’s Essay Dining Table for Fritz Hansen. It’s so simple, yet unique, and available in tons of different finishes.

Below: Bulthaup C3 table. This is really an amazing table – so light with such clean, simple lines.

Below: Meridiani McQueen table. Nothing fancy about this one – but a good, every-day table.

Below: Zeitraum Tavola table. The walnut used for this table is really gorgeous. It does go perfectly with the Morph chairs – although personally, I don’t like to match so exactly.
