Design lesson: UPGRADE THE TRADITIONAL HARVEST TABLE
This dining table possesses key harvest-style features like beautiful natural wood and an extra-long length. But modern updates, like its exotic sheesham wood construction (check out that whorled finish!) and picture-frame legs, make it the harvest table for a new generation of design hounds.
Style tip: UPDATE WITH PILLOWS
We love pillows in bold, graphic prints…and highly textured weaves…and bold, saturated colours…and versatile neutrals. In short, we’re pillow fanatics. You should be too: Swapping your pillows is the easiest way to refresh a space for the new season – or “just because”!
Décor hack: RECLAIM THE BUFFET
An old-school furniture piece that’s making a strong comeback, the buffet is worth considering, especially if you have a growing family or love to entertain. Dedicated dining room storage means you never have to search for the right tableware and the extra table surface comes in handy, too!
Storage tip: HOW TO STYLE A BUFFET
Glass buffets display table- and serveware collections when they’re not in use. Feel free to flaunt your fine china or your everyday pieces but be mindful that small items create a cluttered appearance. Stash cutlery and napkins in rustic baskets within the unit instead.
