The Essentials: Dining Room


Whether you are throwing a grand feast for every single one of your kin, or simply eating for one, you can’t argue that the dining room is an integral part of any home. And so for the third part of our series, we will be presenting you key essentials into making a dining room. From hosting fancy dinner parties to ordering takeouts for one, a good dining room holds many moments in life that will eventually turn into fond memories. Truly a room that needs as much effort and love as the people you sit around the dining table with.


Let’s take a trip down dining room history lane with this excerpt from Dr. Christine Baumgarthuber’s article, “The Greeks were among the first to recognize that eating in secluded comfort reinforced status and class cohesion. Elite men of the most powerful poleis gathered on fragrant evenings in rooms especially designed for feasting. These rooms accommodated no more than eleven couches of stone or wood, each of which in turn accommodated no more than two men. Youths sat on the ground. Young and old alike quaffed diluted wine and munched honey cakes and chestnuts — all fuel for ribald and learned discussions of matters philosophical and romantic.”. How crazy is that?


You don’t need to worry though, we will not be bombarding you with crazy, over the top, items. As promised, we will only list down the very bare necessities:


Dining Table

The heart of it all, the dining table. Where the whole family comes around and get together, where friends catch up, where you set up that romantic dinner with your partner, or where you simply enjoy a bowl of cereal in the morning with just yourself. The dining table will always bring out memories and stories, so better make sure that it’s a good one.

The supporting character, yet equally important. Comfortability, blendability, and durability are some of the key factors in choosing the right dining chairs.You want you and your guests' butts comfortably always. It needs to blend with the dining table of course. And it needs to be able to carry your life, for life.
