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.
Perhaps we’re looking a little harder now, but we came across another great example of a sizable dining table in the kitchen in the March issue of 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?
