Why we all love a large rustic dining table

Fingers crossed, restrictions here in the UK are getting less and less and we will be able to gather with friends and family once again! Many will still choose, or may not be able to take holidays overseas so we can have a look at alternative ways to enjoy summer. Of course, meeting up with family and friends will be something we’re going to enjoy en masse this summer, there is so much catching up to do.

As it’s not long until summer and the weather, hopefully, warms up, we will plan on spending the majority of our time out in our gardens…… but with our changeable British weather, we really do need a backup plan! Here we are having a look at some of the gorgeous large rustic dining tables that are available to gather around no matter what the weather…… and hopefully for many years to come.

Now is the time to get ready for entertaining guests again….after over a year of the dining area being used as a schoolroom, the office or a playroom we’ve got just enough time to refresh, redecorate and refurnish it, and let’s do it in an eco-conscious way by using reclaimed wood furniture. The dining table is the centrepiece of the dining room so let’s make it the star! What better way to create a warm and welcoming room than to opt for a reclaimed wood dining table…and now we will be entertaining again – let’s make it a large one!

The large reclaimed wood Farringdon trestle table is already 2 meters long but with two 45cm extension leaves you can add 90 cm to the total length of the table – that’s plenty of room for four extra at the table. For seating you have the option of wooden dining chairs, but why not opt for a wooden bench? Great for budging up making even more space at the table. If you need some dining room storage then the large sideboard from the Farringdon collection can provide plenty in its three drawers and two cupboards.

If farmhouse rustic style is more your thing then the 280cm long rustic Hoxton oak table should be considered. This table looks gorgeous with lush velvet dining chairs but is also a feature table in the farmhouse kitchen – chunky and sturdy pillar legs support a tabletop skilfully crafted from gorgeous solid oak.

A spider leg table may not be everyone’s first thought when it comes to looking for large dining tables – but it really is a choice that makes perfect sense as there are no table legs in the way to bang knees against! You only have to glance at the Rocco Industrial Rustic Oak dining table with black metal spider leg to know it will bring a real touch of urban industrialism to your rustic dining space. Team with a leather or faux leather dining bench and you will have a welcoming space in which you will never tire of entertaining.
