For some, the kitchen table is an extra place to eat, especially when it comes to meals like breakfast and lunch. For others, the kitchen table IS the dining table, especially if the home is a bit challenged for space! Often more compact than dining room tables, kitchen tables may also serve as a place to snack, work, or even to sit and chat with the chef while food is prepared nearby.
Regardless of the use, kitchen tables may be a bit more informal than dining room tables. And even a tad adventurous! Now is the time to bring on the lacquer, metal AND acrylic. However, the style is totally up to the owner. What’s your kitchen table style? In today’s post, we feature tables and chairs for the kitchen, from matching sets to eclectic blends of modern design elements. Enjoy browsing…
Let’s start with the tables. After all, you’ve got to have a place to set the food! We begin with a classic–the Knoll Saarinen Round Dining Table. Designed by Eero Saarinen, this iconic piece was initially unveiled in 1957. Since then, it has become a modern design favorite. While the table below is shown in white, take note that the item is offered in a variety of finishes for both top and base. [from AllModern]
Speaking of variety, the Bontempi Casa Cubo Bistro Table in the next pair of images can be featured in white and metal. Compact and perfectly contemporary, this piece is ideal for small spaces. [from AllModern]
An unconventional choice designed by Ferruccio Laviani, the Kartell Max Table is often used as a desk. Yet the wheels give it a clear advantage as a table–this piece can be stashed against a wall to open up space in the kitchen, then rolled to the middle of the room to accommodate a group of diners.
