After the kitchen, let’s attack the dining room. We always come back to it! For a one-to-one or with friends, we decorate it with care and look for the table that will bring together and unite those that sit around it. Enhanced by the seating and suitably well-lit ambiance, you’ll enjoy long evenings where you won’t notice the time passing. A dining room table should be stylish. And…it has to suit us. It has to hit the spot and be even more personal than the rest of the apartment. And it’s not always easy to find the right one, the one that matches the rest of the apartment perfectly. The one that stands out from the floor, the colours of the walls and the style of the living room furniture. A dining room table should be a piece whose curves we like to admire. As in love, it therefore takes some time to find the one that suits us best. So, a table in wood, in marble, in terrazzo or in laminate? It’s all good! You can give yourself free rein with the materials and, above all, not hesitate to bend the rules by choosing a meeting table for your dining room, for example. Here at The Socialite Family, our preference is for big, wide, round tables. Those that bring people together and offer more generosity and closeness at mealtimes. For these dining room tables, go for an original top, made to measure by your favourite artisan. When teamed with a metal base, as in David Chaplain and Alexandre Roussard‘s home, it’ll provide an instant stunningly seventies effect. Generally speaking, the idea is to forget the serious side of a dining room table.
