For a living room where the influences of the past echo, choose a round table in a natural material, such as wood, and combine it with seats with a sinuous line, upholstered in soft velvet.

The Scandinavian style is characterized by the use of warm materials and colors, reminiscent of those of the cozy houses of the Northern European countries. Choose a light table, with matching wooden chairs, without forgetting to arrange soft cushions in natural colors to make each guest feel comfortable.

Romantic and feminine, the Shabby Chic style is inspired by the Provencal atmosphere. One-color wins over all: white. For the dining room, opt for a round extendable table and wooden chairs with a worn look. Complete with a floral patterned tablecloth and a ceramic vase filled with fresh flowers, freshly picked from your garden.
How to choose the right table?
If you have to furnish your home from scratch or if you are thinking of a makeover, the living room and the dining room are certainly two of the areas that deserve more attention. Think about how many hours you spend in your living room, with family or friends: don’t neglect it and let it shine with a new light! If space is tight, you can opt for an extendable dining table. Are you wondering which one is right for you? Here are some useful tips.
Before purchasing, take the exact dimensions of the room to make sure you choose a model of the perfect size.
Calculate the measures of the extended table: it seems trivial, but they are not always taken into consideration.
