{our next home} dining tables.

we broke ground on our next home last week, which means things are going to be coming together before we know it, and we need to start thinking about furniture placement so that we can then finalize light fixtures.

the problem child has become our dining area. the kitchen and dining area is open concept and the table will actually sit parallel to our kitchen island and has a french door that will leads out on our deck.

we want a dining table that nicely balances out the other side of the space that will be lined with white cabinets and a large island but is narrow enough to not over power the space and make things feel tight.

here is what we know we want, a dark table, solid wood, with a little bit of rustic texture but with clean lines. we would like a table that extends for when we need it, but so we can take the leaf out when we aren't. lets be honest we will most likely eat 90% of our meals at the island.

we will be bringing my favorite light fixture from the condo with us, and i love the idea of the modern light fixture to balance out the rustic finish of the table. also the glass links will help keep the space feeling light and open.

{our next home} dining in style.

there is an obvious trend with all these tables, shapely legs : ) it is something i am loving but i am also wondering if these bottom heavy tables will be too much for a smaller space. what do you think?

we still have a little while but will need to make a decision in the next few weeks since the table we end up picking will dictate where the light fixture rough-in will need to be placed before drywall gets hung.

so the pressure is on. we hope to swing by restoration hardware in the next few weeks and check these babies out in person, i am hoping seeing them in person will make the decision a lot easier.

does anyone have any recommendations for dining tables between 36 -39 inches deep? is it me or are there limited options out there?
