Consider an Extendable Table

Extendable dining tables are the ultimate entertaining solution. Versatile and easy to adjust, most extendable tables feature hidden leaves that open effortlessly to allow you and your guests to spread out around the table with ease. No matter your style, we have plenty of options that will satisfy all your holiday entertaining needs.

Gather ‘Round

If a large rectangular table or one that extends doesn’t work within your space, a round dining table is the perfect way to go. You’ll find that round dining tables allow for a more intimate setting, encouraging conversation since everyone can see and hear one another. This allows for a smaller gathering and an overall warm and inviting atmosphere.

Pull Up a Bench

Adding a bench to your dining room is a great space-saving option that also allows for less people crowding around the dining table. The best part about benches is that they’re versatile and multi-functional, so when you’re not entertaining, you can easily move it to the bedroom, living room, or entryway for extra seating or an additional surface to place personal belongings.

Add a Storage Piece to Serve Double Duty

In addition to providing a convenient and nearby home for all of your serving pieces, dishes and glassware, a buffet or sideboard can also provide extra surface space for serving your close group of friends and family this holiday season. Use the top to arrange a buffet of food, a drink station, or even a station for delectable desserts.
