As 2018 starts to near its end, we thought we would take a nostalgic look back at some of the year’s best sellers. The dining table is an essential piece of furniture but that doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. But what tables from our collections proved to be the best sellers? Was it the oak dining table, or the reclaimed dining table that came out on top?
The Mitcham dining table
We haven’t long launched the Mitcham Collection but so far, the sales of both the rectangular and square dining table from this range have flown out the door. If we are honest, we are not surprised. The beautiful spider legs of the rectangular industrial dining table from the collection are staggeringly beautiful and the square dining table has made for a pleasant note change in terms of shape. Both these dining tables are ideal for the industrial style homes.
The Beam dining table
Another fantastic dining table proving popular with customers throughout the year is the Beam dining table in a medium colour finish; a perfect example of the perfect rustic style furniture you are sure to love. In many ways, the medium finish of this reclaimed wood furniture allows the best of both world when it comes to styling out the dining room. Not too dark to become oppressive but not too light to jar against the rustic styling of the room, we expect the Beam dining table to remain a firm favourite for a while yet.
The Standford dining table
This year, we’ve made a big effort to bring the finish and styling that customers ask for and we’ve kept a close eye on the functionalities that customer asks for too. An industrial extending dining table is clearly a hot favourite at the moment and so it's no wonder to see the Standford industrial extending dining table on the bestselling list.
Popular with customers who either have a family and/or entertain regularly, an extendable dining table ticks so many boxes that they often tell us they wondered how they managed without! This extending table has a central extending area, and with the reclaimed wood top complete with metal legs, the table is perfect for the industrial style as well as sitting well in a contemporary dining room.
The Kensington dining table
Fourth on our list is a dining table that has a slight edge over the others in that we have moved from the ever-popular industrial look and slid into the realm of glamour. The Kensington reclaimed wood dining table with stainless steel legs hints at a style that we think will become increasingly popular in the coming year. There is a hint of understated glamour to this dining table that we were under no illusion when we added it to the Kensington Collection that it would be a popular choice.
Match the decadence of the high-shine stainless steel legs with the sumptuousness of velvet upholstered dining chairs. Ideal for the more formal dining room, there is a certain something about this table that we loved as soon as we saw it – and you have proven the point by making it one of our best selling dining table this year.
