I love my dining area, but I’m starting to think that a smaller round table might be a better fit for this space. The small pathway between the island and the table feels really tight (this photo doesn’t quite do it justice) and I’d like to free up a bit of space there. A round table would give me a bit more room and has a visually smaller footprint than a rectangular table. I’m also noticing that almost every piece of furniture I have in the apartment (with the exception of my entry table) is square or rectangle shaped and I’d like to incorporate more variety. Enter: a mid-century inspired round table and bentwood chairs! The mid-century look of the table ties in well with my credenza and the light grey color of the chairs adds a bit of interest to the space. Of course my eyes are always bigger than my budget, so this plan will be a little further down the road (and hopefully I can score the chairs on sale at some point) but I’ll be selling my current dining table and four chairs if anyone local (DC area) is interested, let me know!
