The chill of October tells us one thing: winter is coming. Darker evenings and shorter days may spell doom and gloom for some but for us, it means party season.

And there are plenty of options from the spooky party for Halloween to apple bobbing on Firework night to informal get togethers as the festive season arrives in December, followed by late night revelry to welcome in the New Year.

Most parties revolve around the kitchen and the food which is why this handsome and stylish Windsor oak farmhouse kitchen table is a must. This dining area looks fresh, bright and inviting – but how do you get the look?

To Extend or Not to Extend, that is the Question

Not quite the correct Shakespearean quote but near enough. The Windsor oak farmhouse table is versatile – just look at the chunky legs and sturdy frame, with the smooth oak table top – seating six to eight diners. It is versatile and extendable too, so you can squeeze in even more guests!

The reclaimed wood Windsor farmhouse table offers the same elegance and style to a room, but doesn’t extend. It does, however, still tick all the boxes, especially if you love the idea of using reclaimed wood, complete with a story all of its own.

Seating

Now you have the table in place, you need to set about creating the perfect dining space. Ambience is set by lighting, atmosphere by your hosting and appeal by the style you choose to use in the space.

For a room to look and feel warm and inviting, which is why the hardness of wood for the dining table is perfectly offset by the tactile nature of fabric dining chairs.Windsor Oak White Farmhouse Extending Dining Table

There are many options when it comes to style (and colour). The Daling upholstered dining chairs are simply delicious, even if we do say so ourselves. There is something simple, yet appealing about the high, straight back of the chair. There is support and comfort, perfect for your diners to enjoy the delicious meal about to be served. The uncluttered appearance of these chairs is also perfect for allowing the eye to flow throughout the dining room.

Another great option if you want more detail but without clutter are the Solo upholstered dining chairs. With a slightly lower back but with the exquisite button detailing and ‘folds’ at the lower back level, they offer the same support and plushness, with a little extra detail.

As you would expect, there is a range of beautiful colours from the lightest of sea green to the dark, romantic depths of Blackberry. This swatch of 12 colours is available across both the Daling and Solo dining chair ranges. See here the bespoke options.

The Background

The table is set, the chairs look magnificent – you just need something extra. From bespoke artwork on the walls to a colour-enhancing rug, you need another piece of furniture that brings yet more glamour to the room. Understated, yet essential, the Windsor large glass white display cabinet is perfect.

And that is all it takes to recreate this beautiful, stylish dining room – perfect no matter what the party!
