If you are entertaining over the festive period, here are my tips on how to add some vintage style to your dining space, with investment furniture and vintage finishing touches:
Vintage dining tables
I love sourcing dining tables for clients. They really set the tone for the rest of a dining space. Circular dining tables are great for informal, smaller spaces. They're also super versatile as they can be used as a central table in a larger hall, too. Classic, rectangular dining tables are great if you have the space for formal dining and want to create a central statement focus. I love finding bold marble, chrome and glass finishes that don't need a tablecloth to dress them - they're the main event! We have a range of coloured and neutral vintage dining tables in-stock at the moment online. If you'd like me to source one to your specific room dimensions, do get in touch.
Vintage dining chairs
When sourcing vintage dining chairs it's important to understand a client's lifestyle. Beautiful upholstered chairs are great for grown-up dining spaces, where you want to be comfortable to linger long into the night. While for busy, high-traffic family kitchen dining I would recommend a hard-wearing wood, rattan or even a wipe-clean leather finish.
Rugs for under dining tables
Rugs are great for creating 'dining zones' in open-plan spaces. They can also soften a wooden floor to make a dining room feel cosier and more intimate. Our bespoke 'By Lia' rugs can be created to any dimensions to fit under your table and chair set.
Finishing touches to your vintage dinner party
If you're not ready to invest in new furniture but want to add some vintage style to your dining space a candle holder is a perfect focal point to add character to your table. Vintage vases are also great to hold seasonal blooms, or why not start small with a vintage bar cart or side table to add to the space?
