Dining Room is Ready

It only took 72 years, but I am finally am satisfied with the way the dining room looks. The area is part dining room, part Anthony's office, and it was difficult to find a way to combine the two without totally compromising style over functionality. I wanted a non-cluttered space that was easy and welcoming for guests and family. After living together for over 4 years, we decided it was the time to purchase higher price tag items that would last us longer, rather than finding a quick solution.



Our dining table is from Restoration Hardware and comes with two extenders for the table, so it is perfect for hosting thanksgiving or other large family dinners. This was quite the investment piece for us, but proved to be so worth it. The table looks great and I love hosting people for dinner because of it.




Our dining chairs are the Tig Metal Barrel Dining Chairs from Crate and Barrel. We didn't want anything that looked "too old" and decided that this was the best way to be a little modern. The peacock chairs at the end tables were from Anthropologie, but sadly are no longer available! The price point on these were great.





I've accumulated quite the large amount of glassware over the years, and felt like it was high time to display my beautiful findings. We initially wanted a bar cart, but decided that this was the better alternative. The shelf for all my glassware is from IKEA, and while it looks sturdy, I wouldn't put it in a high-traffic area, as it can be a little shaky. You can shop the shelf here.



I switch up the decor on my dining table quite frequently, but the candleholders tend to stay year-round. Right now I'm enjoying peony seasons and don't really like to have anything else on the table. While the original ceramic candleholders from West Elm are no longer available, here are similar ones, also from West Elm, along with the actual candlesticks I purchased.
