Dining Tables

Dining tables are once again our top sellers. The popularity of the Standford Industrial Reclaimed Wood Extending Dining Table continues to rise – it looks as good as a contrast piece in a modern urban home as it does in a loft or rustic cottage. The Farringdon reclaimed wood extendable trestle table is particularly popular with families who are seeking a chunky solid wooden extendable dining table. This table looks especially great with the matching wooden dining bench – a practical choice if you like to entertain with room to fit more guests around the table. Another wooden table with bench that needs a mention is the Lansdowne Industrial. With plenty of other pieces in the collection including a wooden sideboard, with just these items you have set a stylish foundation for your dining room theme.

Dining Chairs

When you are looking for seating for your dining room then the classic soft tan leather Standford is your top choice. These leather dining room chairs combine comfort with an industrial style that will complement many different interior styles and colour schemes. Perfect if you’re looking for a more rustic look the Allegro chairs were another top pick for the stylish dining room. Those of you who were looking for a vegan option fell head over heels with our Cleo faux leather seating collection – with benches and bar stools available as well as the faux leather dining chairs, all offered in tan or grey – we weren’t at all surprised to see this at the top of the list.

Bedroom Furniture

The Dulwich reclaimed wood solid bed frame is a classic rustic bed that continues to be the popular choice. Many different styles are available but all feature a solid wooden headboard that has been handcrafted right here in the UK from reclaimed beams, which are often over 100 years old. As well as the Dulwich range our Winchester and Chelwood reclaimed wood collections also proved to be a bedroom essential in your homes. A reclaimed wood table at your bedside was your bedroom furniture piece of choice, adding not just essential storage, but warmth and character than only reclaimed wood can.

Living room furniture

Along with the ever-popular industrial dining table from the Standford collection many of you have decided to opt for an industrial look in the living room too. Our wooden sideboard from the Standford Industrial collection as well as the industrial coffee table have been popular choices throughout the year. Industrial furniture is so versatile – it can blend into any interior scheme and can be softened to create a warm inviting living space. A modern country scheme has also proved desirable this year, with our Chelwood reclaimed wood TV unit being one of our best selling living room furniture picks this year.

In food, beauty and fashion products there is now a vegan alternative for pretty much everything, and there are furniture options too. When it comes to chairs you can choose vegan with faux leather dining chairs as a substitute to a leather dining chair. Apart from being vegan-friendly, there are other advantages of opting for a faux leather chair in your home. Firstly, they are usually more competitively priced than leather dining room chairs, and secondly, they are super practical with spills easy to wipe away and much easier than a leather or fabric dining chair – very handy in a home with small children and sticky fingers!

Here are a few of our top picks!

Ethan Faux Leather Lounge Chair 

The Ethan Faux Leather Lounge Chair really look amazing and are super comfortable too. The chairs are sumptuously padded and soft to the touch – the perfect partner for a rustic dining table, don’t you think? With the stylish and sturdy u-shaped metal legs they would also sit well with an industrial dining table, faux leather looks particularly good in an industrial themed room.

Cleo vegan-friendly dining chair & dining bench

This range of dining room seating really is one for the style-conscious. It consists of a variety of seating options ranging from a bench with a back, a bench with no back, grey faux leather dining chairs as well as a counter stool – pretty much every seating option you could need. It’s available in a grey and tan colour too so great if you want to stick to a neutral brown colour scheme in your dining space.

Available in a gorgeous brown or grey colour with modern minimalist black legs they are a match for many a reclaimed wood dining table. This is a way to get maximum style into your dining space without the worry of spillages on your dining seats. Featuring black metal legs these vegan dining chairs will also look fabulous with an industrial dining table which is a great way to blend contemporary and industrial style as seen in the latest interior decor publications.
