Fall is the time of year when your dining room takes center stage. Oft overlooked during summertime , it reclaims its spot as entertainment-central when the air turns crisp and Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah are on the horizon. No longer a one-size-fits-all set with a traditional table and china cabinet, today the dining room is an eclectic expression of your family’s taste, lifestyle and values.
Take a look at these four dining rooms. Each has a different story to tell and each could be yours before the turkey’s ready for the oven:
Industrial yet rustic, the Keaton Dining Collection is one of our most unique looks. The table and server both have a charcoal finish with a zinc top for extra interest. A mix of traditional X-back chairs, upholstered Parsons chairs and bench seating add to its character. The result is a dining collection that effortlessly complements contemporary and casual living spaces.
The beautifully designed glass-top table of the Mirage Dining Collection features a mirrored, accordion-style, square pedestal base that plays with the light of your dining room chandelier. Pair it with any style chair to make the look your own. We like the sophisticated look of the Flared Parsons Chair in grey with nailhead trim.

The large trestle style table and comfortable chairs of the Dakota Ridge Dining Collection give a look and feel to your dining room that says Americana at its finest. With aged distressing in a burnished caramel finish, the pieces look like they’ve been handed down throughout your family. The sideboard is as functional as it is stylish. Bring home this collection and get ready to host a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving.
If you’re looking to bring back the formal feel of dinner at eight, the Whitney Dining Collection will provide the perfect backdrop. With the chocolate cherry finish of its double pedestal base and the deep brown tufted-back leather-look seats, the look is stately and rich. Tie and jacket optional … or not.
