The Family Table

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

The Family table… a gathering place, the heart of a kitchen, dining room or patio. For late night snacks or holiday festivities, the family table is a chameleon that can transform itself with china, linens and glassware from casual to formal. Take a look at the family tables and their settings below and see if you don’t come up with quite a few of your own decorating ideas.

A Family at Table, by Ivan Kulikov (1938), is a gorgeous depiction of a family dinner. Love the bounty and elegant serving pieces on the table but how odd that no one is engaging with anyone else or even eating! We love to talk and eat.

A zinc top outdoor table is perfect for family gatherings… no worries about spills or stains. Nice version of the Thonet chairs in metal.

A casual family table with colorful paper cups and fresh cut flowers from the garden creates an inviting space to linger and catch up.

A family table can be a simple round table in a breakfast nook with a variety of seating options. A small table is perfect for breakfast or family lunch.

Comfortable seating, included a pillow covered banquette, is a must for a family table. Benches or banquettes provide flexible seating for large or small groups. Kitchen designs such as this one really inspire us to go home and spend time around our own tables with the family.

Lovely mix of simple white china and colorful florals, vintage glassware, and vintage linens. It feels like a mix of heirloom hand-me-downs and new pieces—things most families have in their cupboards. Designed by Amy Ephron, Writer and Founder oneforthetable.com, Los Angeles.

An eat-in kitchen with a long gathering table creates a wonderful family eating space. This long table is narrow for close conversation and long enough to spread out homework assignments or baking projects.

White with bright accent colors, like red chairs, creates a cheerful gathering place. A white table is a great backdrop for bright colored china or linens too.

Whether inside or outside family table is very important for family gathering. We can organize mini picnic or birthday party even in our home. Decorative or artistic table can add value in home. Artistic table looks very beautiful. There is rumor about Nashville Patio Furniture in my neighbor. So I am planning to furnish my garden with furniture. If we love to decorate our home, then the home give us respect.
