How To Pick The Perfect Modernist Dining Table

Your dining table should be a focal point for your eating space—here’s how to pick the right one.

Perhaps no other piece in your home holds so much possibility for a statement than your dining table. But as a place to entertain, eat and occasionally work-from-home, your modernist dining table needs to be just as functional as it is beautiful. Finding a table that fits these needs is important, so check out these three keys to picking out the perfect dining table for your functional needs and modernist tastes.

Consider Your Needs

Do you need a table that’s ready for extravagant dinner parties and is a showstopper in every sense of the word? Or are you looking for a piece that’s a bit more low-key and will look just as ready covered in schoolwork as it would covered in appetizers? It’s important to look for a table that will match what you need, as your modernist dining table will be no good unless you use it!

Consider Your Space

Just as it would be silly to put an incredibly ornate heirloom table in your breakfast nook, it also won’t work to squeeze a table into a space that’s far too small (or large) for it. If you have a small space, look for a modernist dining table that will complement it, not overwhelm it. Consider an extendable table like our Thrive Dining Table that can do double duty. Additionally, consider the shape of your dining table— round or square tables give off a cozy look that works wonderfully in smaller spaces, while rectangular tables look better in longer, bigger spaces.

Consider Your Style

Enough focus on the practical—it’s time to talk about giving your modernist dining table some flair! Don’t shy away from style with your table, as it will be the focal point of whatever space it’s in. If you want a sleek, modern look, check out our Urbane Dining Table. For a more Scandinavian-inspired table, our Pakar Dining Table is a great fit. And of course, make sure to invest in dining chairs and cabinets that complement your modernist dining table and make that space the best-dressed room in your home.
