The kitchen is the heart of the home and so it’s no surprise that for many people, it is the first renovation project they undertake in their home.
A personal space, we all use our kitchens differently. From layout to kitchen cabinet combinations, how we style the space is different from one home to another.
And it seems that the popularity of combining the kitchen and dining room is showing no signs of going anywhere yet.
This made us think – just how well do our fabulous dining tables fit into kitchens that are clearly individually designed. From the traditional to the farmhouse, to the uber-modern, it seems we have no need to worry because taking a peek at the photos our customers send us, they fit right in.
Combining modern with the traditional
Sometimes, it is not the styling but the tone of the wood that pulls everything together. We work with designers and domestic customers to create beautifully bespoke kitchens and sometimes, the most unlikely of items work together.
A modern kitchen with darker wood tone kitchen cabinets blends seamlessly with this chunky mid-tone Stanford dining table. The use of leather kitchen chairs seals the deal as far as we are concerned.
A customer shared their recent purchase on Instagram. @morethanblush also combined the Standford dining table in their modern kitchen, complete with modern kitchen chairs. Their chosen dining table had a more industrial slant to it.
The wooden leg dining chairs fit surprisingly well with the sleek dark steel frame of the Standford table and the bright, modern tiled kitchen floor.
The whole effect is softened with the crisp white walls and the modern kitchen units but the reclaimed wood table top looks just fabulous.
Modern farmhouse kitchen
Another customer, @Justalittlebuild shared the photo of the reclaimed wood dining table they had bought in situ in their kitchen. Shared on our Instagram page, it shows how a modern kitchen can be achieved.
The traditional kitchen doors work well with the industrial dining table from the Luxe Kensington collection.
The twist of modern lies in the polished, reflective surfaces of the metal frame on the table, the see-through modern shaped plastic dining chairs and the glass top of the dining table.
It all comes together because of cohesive elements like this with the neutral walls and grey sofa softening the overall finish. We love it! How about you?
Age and beauty
The Farringdon collection is one of our most popular which comes as no surprise to us. The reclaimed wood used in this collection could be more than a century old.
The romance of age and the warmth of the wood is a sheer delight in the picture sent to us by @prettylittlehomethings on Instagram.
Again, it shows how versatile it can be to combine and mix styles and finishes. Who would have thought that the Farringdon reclaimed wood dining table with dining bench would fit in a space that is so obviously modern?
The reason why it works is that the dining bench, simple yet functional, is the perfect partner in the functional, modern space.
