Why Dining Room Tables are still the centerpiece in today's modern family home

Family Dinner
Modern Families GATHER IN The dining Room

 "  April's air stirs in 
    Willow-leaves...a butterfly
    Floats and balances "

It's 2017.  Your family likely spends a majority of their at home time looking at some kind of a digitized screen, absorbing what we consider too much eye-straining liquid crystal display light.  This all changes the moment you place a delicious home cooked meal down on the dining room table, call in your family, and create real moments together that aren't measured in social media likes.    

Let's face it, these days modern families congregate in two places- the living room to watch TV or gaze into their smartphones, and the Dining Room.  Family dinners have been a mainstay in our society for quite a long time now, and aren't going anywhere.  Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, built in 1772, was one of the first American homes created with the dining room in mind.  In the United States, this cultural fixture grew stronger in the post-WWII era as families sitting down to spend time with each other were regularly portrayed in popular TV shows such as Leave it to Beaver, The Brady Brunch, and just about every family sitcom aired since.

 

Choosing the Right Dining Room Table for your Home

Not all dining room tables are alike.  Your home needs a table that provides enough space for your family to eat, play games, do school projects, and set cumbersome laptops on top of.  It must fit into the unique aesthetic of your home while providing a sense of community when your family sits down at it.  That is why we offer an extensive line of natural dining room tables so you can find the perfect match!
