Dining Room Set Savings

Many events happen in your dining room to make it one of the best-loved rooms of the home. Long hours of homework help are given, family meals are shared every night during the week and larger gatherings are thrown around the holidays, for graduations and for other important events. Whether your dining room is exceedingly formal, or it’s a comfortable place to have meals and conversations with your family, having furniture you enjoy not only makes it a room you appreciate spending time in, but a room you’re proud to display to guests when they arrive. No matter your taste or style, we offer quite a few dining selections that are sure to meet your needs, no matter what size room you’re intending to outfit. We offer several different types of dining room set savings at Pottery Barn, from clearance to special limited time offers – to ensure that furnishing your home is easy on your budget as well.


As you begin to furnish your dining room with a set, think about the way you’re going to use your room. If you entertain often, a larger table with an adequate amount of chairs is in order, such as a set that includes six or more chairs. If your family is small and entertaining is not a priority, a smaller table with less chairs allows you more elbow room at the table. If your needs fall somewhere in between, it’s a good idea to opt for a table that’s extendable. This way, you can easily enjoy small meals with your family, but also host the occasional cocktail or birthday party without a lot of effort. Allow yourself several feet between the end of your dining room table and the wall, even when the table is fully extended, to allow guests (and yourself) enough room to move around during a larger get-together.


Style and durability is also important in your dining room set. A more formal or classic dining room does well with a long, rectangular table and a set of high-backed chairs. Solid poplar or other types of solid wood works well for construction. If your room is more casual, or you are outfitting a smaller space, such as a nook or an eat-in kitchen, a round pedestal table is a good choice for the space. Also built of strong, solid wood, pedestal tables have a beautiful finish and easily complement any existing decor in your dining room. For more contemporary styles, consider a long, oval extending table with a set of benches in lieu of chairs, or a counter-height table that gives the room a ’50s diner or retro feel. If you want to give your room a bit of an eclectic vibe, choose a set that includes comfortable, yet interesting dining chairs. Chairs with wicker seating add a bit of color contrast to make them a focal point, while upholstered chairs are aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable. If you regularly have a crowd, even for dinner on a weeknight, consider long dining benches for extra room, especially for young and older children.


Color is another important factor when choosing furniture for your room. Bring warmth to the space with dining room sets in mahogany, or ones that feature a deep, espresso color. For other tastes, different colors and finishes are available within different sets. A white dining set can add a bit of cheer and brightness to an eat-in kitchen or dining room, while a natural, sand-colored set offers a modern look that blends well with any color scheme. Other colors and finishes to consider include vintage spruce and “rustic,” which is a honey blonde color.
