In today’s over-scheduled world, eating on the go has become a common habit, but the benefits of dining together as a family should have you avoiding the drive through. Studies have shown that children who participate in regular family dinners do better in school, have higher self-esteem, have a lower rate of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, depression, and eating disorders, and are less likely to be obese.
Family dinners take just two things: good food and a dinner table. While the chow is up to you, we can help you create the perfect setting with our A la Carte Mix and Match Dining Program. Dozens of tables and hundreds of chairs are available, making your design options almost endless.
Here are just a few combinations to get you inspired. Imagine gathering your family around one of these four tables:
A big family would have plenty of room with our Lassen Table. Made of solid walnut hardwood, it comfortably seats up to eight. The mix of chairs – from the slip-covered Camden Parsons to the sleek Demi Chair with metal base – give this grouping an interesting, eclectic feel. This abundantly sized table and chairs would also make a great place for kids to work on school projects.
The mixed metal and wood construction of the Gabe Table provides an urban take on farmhouse style. Its simple construction and lines are mirrored in the York Chairs. Perfect in a contemporary, casual, rustic or transitional space, this setting seats six and can handle the comings and goings of a busy family.
Round tables promote sharing, and the Orson Table does it in style. Rustic in design, its architectural inspired base gives the table a modern feel. Pair it with the Nixon Chairs and you’ve created an interesting setting for interesting conversations.
Finally, you’ll create a fancy feeling when you start with our Glass Table with Urn Base. Its classic design and shape go with just about any chair that suits you. We love the inviting look and feel of the Katy Graphite Chairs with their curved top. This chair is available in dozens of fabrics, so you can make the look all your own. From solids to prints, you’ll have fun designing your perfect table setting.
