Q: I am hoping readers would share their suggestions for family-friendly dining tables that are also attractive design-wise. We like modern design and had planned to get a midcentury modern Danish teak dining table with chairs to match. Now that we have a 14-month-old daughter we realize that this may not be the ideal choice for us. We want to purchase a nice dining table that will accommodate grownup dinner parties but can also be a comfortable site for everyday meals and, as our daughter grows older, a place where she could do her homework and the family could come together without having to worry about stains and scratches. Any suggestions? Thank you!
