Description

A large counter height table in a square design is a beautiful choice in contemporary rooms (just look at its clean, symmetrical lines!) and particularly in apartments where space isn’t always a luxury.

A popular and versatile combination is that of a table in a streamlined design and some simple upholstered chairs in neutral colors.

Description

Wish to keep it varied? Choosing a counter height dining set for 8 doesn’t necessarily have to mean ‘eight chairs’. For example, have you considered benches?

Long benches for four might be a bit rarer to find in a counter-height design, but you can easily look for sets that include a mixture of chairs and a smaller but higher bench.

This is also a practical choice if you have kids, as it’ll allow them to sit right next to each other comfortably and potentially squeeze a third one in when needed.

Steelside™

Description

Perfect For: Large family gatherings and intimate holiday dinners

What We Like: It’s a beautiful blend of sleek modern and farmhouse style

This counter-height table is crafted from solid acacia wood with unfinished natural wood grain edges. It stands on two curved, black iron supports and can comfortably seat up to eight.

Designer Advice

With its sleek, curved supports and live-edge finish, this dining table would make a fantastic addition to a modern industrial or cozy farmhouse space. Pair it with chairs or stools with a height of around 24-25 inches to complement the height, and look for pieces with a rustic or industrial feel to complement your theme.

What Users Say

Gorgeous table. Really heavy (needed someone strong to bring it in and set it up) but looks and feels very high quality and sturdy. Love the live edge. This is a solid piece of wood – not pieced together. It’s a beautiful focal point for the room.

Designer Advice

Accent this table with a wooden centerpiece bowl or a ceramic base to add warmth and a touch of rustic charm. Alternatively, opt for a vase of fresh flowers or a potted plant centerpiece and hang a pendant light overhead to illuminate your soirees.

Perfect For: A small apartment

What We Like: It features two storage shelves on the pedestal

Complete your living room setup with this grand counter-height dining table. Crafted from solid and manufactured wood, it features four turned legs on a pedestal base with two convenient shelves for puzzles and board games.

Designer Advice

This table’s rich wooden finish could add a beautiful contrast to a white or neutral background. Think alabaster walls, beige linen curtains, and whitewashed wooden floors. Incorporate elements like woven placemats, linen table runners, or a patterned rug underneath for a warm, cozy feel.

What Users Say

Very nice table!! The legs are super heavy duty and the shelves are very useful.

If, to you, comfort comes before style… well, you can still find plenty of options that favor both!

Softer upholstered chairs are especially recommended if you’re going to be using them for longer periods of time (big dinners or events) or if some of your household members suffer from back pain or mobility issues.

Well, if you’ve got enough room for it, there’s no reason not to choose a majestic long table (unless you’d personally prefer a more intimate square design, of course).

But what if you’re torn between six and eight chairs as you’d like to accommodate more guests but also gain a bit more space?

Easy: look for a dining set for 6 that includes a leaf. That way, you’ll only need to sacrifice some extra space when you actually have guests around.

Let’s be honest: we could always do with more storage, couldn’t we? We guess your dining room isn’t an exception to the rule.

If you’d like to have an additional surface to keep some magazines or functional items like a cloth, look for a dining set for 8 with a table that includes this magical feature in the middle.

Description

Fairly small room? Choosing the right shape for it is key, but colors play just as much of a role in the final result. In fact, darker wood finishes or dark hues in general tend to create a heavier feel, which is why we only recommend them in particularly large dining rooms.

Lighter finishes, on the contrary, will help small or medium-sized settings look airier and bigger than they actually are.

Did you draw inspiration from the countryside when furnishing your beautiful home? Whether you’ve opted for farmhouse, French country or cottage-style interiors, you’ll want to reinforce your rustic vision when choosing your new counter height dining set for 8.

The key is to stick to wooden designs, either entirely or by combining natural wood and a finish that matches your palette.

Slatted frames or designs featuring some minor decorative elements will also work wonders.

Majestic rectangular tables are the most natural choice in antique interiors. However, space matters, too: if you think you’d end up feeling a bit too cramped, a round or square design will do just fine, as long as you maintain your decor’s signature features.

Some popular antique elements for tables include a dark wood finish, tufted leather, wood carvings, and harmonious shapes in general, from your table legs to the back of your chairs.
