Editor's Notes

June 18, 2020:

Dining tables haven't changed much since their popularization by the Greeks, who were known for their admiration of large feasts. While these selections aren't crafted from the solid marble of antiquity, they are made with varied, quality materials that will be sure to match your decor and complement your home. Our list includes several types of designs, including those with drop leaves, pedestal-styles, contemporary looks, and large banquet tables for big families or those entertaining company.

If you have many diners, the Ashley Signature Design Flynter, A-America Bristol Point, and Ashley Signature Design Moriville are all great options. The latter two both come with drop-in leaves, which you can use when company is over or keep stored when it's just the family, and the Ashley Signature Design Flynter features drawers to conveniently hold your silverware sets before you dine.

If you're looking for something that will fit a family of four, but could also be used as a computer or art desk, check out the Zinus Juliet, Zinus Jen, and Ironck Industrial. They all have minimalist styles, are easy to assemble, and are not hard to pick up and move if necessary.

The East West Furniture DLB-05 is a perfect choice for an apartment or studio because it's relatively small, and the sides can fold down, which allows it to be pushed into a corner or up against a wall when you need more space.

Special Honors

English Breadboard Table Harp Design Co. is committed to using reclaimed wood and very old crafting techniques, resulting in some of the highest quality tables around. This particular selection is crafted from recycled pine, and the top is fit together using the tongue-and-groove technique, while the legs are attached using mortise-and-tenon joinery. This piece may have an expensive price tag, but it is handmade with the utmost care in Texas, and built to last.

Seb Collection Dining Set This table is crafted entirely from solid acacia wood and designed with clean lines and rounded corners, which give it a mid-century modern style. It comes with two matching chairs, and its long, cushioned bench seat is upholstered with comfortable dark grey fabric. It's also available in an extendable model for those who often entertain guests.

Aztec Round Pedestal If you are seeking a table that stands out, then the Aztec Round Pedestal is a great choice. It has an aluminum powder-coated base and a satin white lacquer top, which give it a sleek, futuristic look. It seats up to four people comfortably, and is quite easy to assemble because of its few parts.
