1. Tables

Whether it’s just you or the whole family, the dining table is where a good evening starts (and sometimes ends). Picking the right one all depends on your space and needs. A large table like Jenson is great for bigger households. Its solid oak will serve you well for years to come, and it can seat up to eight thanks to its handy extension leaves. If you’re after something smaller, we’ve got plenty of options – Fjord fits right into Nordic nests, while Haku will feel at home in more modern surroundings. 

2. Chairs

If anything elevates the everyday, it’s velvet. Julietta ensures softness all-round, plus the curved back and sides make it a supportive perch for long sessions around the table. Rumana’s got that revival look down, and taps into this season’s natural cane trend (more on that here). But if you’re a traditionalist at heart, we’re betting that Amalyn will be your chair of choice. The dark walnut wood makes a luxurious statement – and did we mention that brass detailing? 

3. Sideboards

Nothing elevates a dining space more than a statement sideboard. Whether you’re into a contemporary look or have a thing for retro rattan, we’ve got one to suit every design scheme. One of our enduring favourites? Lali. Polished brass handles + mahogany-red wraparound = so elegant. And we’ve got to mention Mellor, too. That sleek oak top is perfect for your favourite accessories and a bunch of dried flowers – think host with the most vibes. 

4. Dinnerware

Now you’ve got the big things sorted, it’s time to sweat the small stuff. Take your humble beans on toast to new heights with Daxten’s unique green and blue reactive glaze. After something more minimal? Caelyn’s calming colour scheme reminds us of Nordic nights, while Xeina’s glossy black glaze will make your cooking look Michelin-starred (we can’t help you with the taste though). And don’t forget the cutlery. Try a pared-back set like Salla – it’s a true classic.
