Banks Dining Room

Drama and presentation are high on the list with the Banks Dining Room Collection we have available at Pottery Barn. When your friends and family gather around our oval dining table, they are sure to appreciate the rugged details and antique feel of this piece. Subtle distressing of the kiln-dried poplar gives the table a distinctively rustic feel. Adding the collection’s buffet table to your dining room will provide ample storage space for all of your dining and entertaining essentials.

The oval shape of the Banks dining table fits easily in most dining areas. Baluster posts support the tabletop easily, and you can extend the table size up to a full 118 inches with an additional leaf. This would be plenty of room to set a full table, complete with beautiful chargers in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials.

When you’re planning guests for dinner, you might wish to add napkin rings and place card holders to your table settings. The deep color and sheen of the Banks table lend itself easily to many different napkin ring and place card holder styles. In fact, the resonating color of the table is thanks to the multiple steps involved in the hand application of the wood finish.

A dramatic light fixture above the table could set an impressive stage. Chandeliers provide just the right amount of mood lighting for dining, and they add an elegant touch to any dining area. With the bold lines and deep color of the table, you might wish to choose an equally grand light fixture. Antique crystals, beads, shells and even sea glass help create unforgettable illumination above a dining room table. Chandeliers are available in a wide array of sizes, styles and shapes to fit any room size and decor.

Adding candleholders to your tabletop can be a beautiful finishing touch. Set an elegant mood with glass hurricane candleholders with brass accents. Clear pillar holders are also a delightful touch to fit either a casual or formal meal. Candleholders in mercury glass could be the ideal complement for the old-fashioned style of the Banks dining table.

As you build your dining room adding table, chairs and more, you’ll appreciate the flexibility of the Banks dining room pieces. They mix and match nicely with other pieces, thanks to the simple lines of the furnishings. You can even update various elements of your dining ensemble to keep your room fresh and exciting.
