Being able to claim neither a full kitchen nor a dining room, we are quite envious of the opportunity to work with large, even oversized furniture. Kim has documented her entire kitchen remodel over at Desire To Inspire, and we were interested to see her choice of a large dining table for six, directly in the middle of her newly open kitchen. We didn’t expect to see such a dominant piece, afraid it might disrupt the flow of the kitchen, but we absolutely love it. She has worked a great, large seating arrangement into a warm and inviting kitchen and seems to still have plenty of room to navigate while cooking.Livingetc. Annick Lestrohan and Bernard Colombani have converted an old factory into a home, and placed an old haberdasher’s table just parallel to their countertops. The dining chairs are upholstered in a colorful floral, which brings a bright upholstered accent to a stainless, modern kitchen. It seems very inviting and gives this industrial space a warm touch.
If and when we find ourselves in a space with a bit more than 200 square feet, we’ll definitely consider this arrangement of furniture. It seems to add a sense of community and entertainment to the kitchen. What do you think?
