3 unique ideas for updating the dining furniture in your Chicago home or apartment

Living in Chicago makes you have a different perspective on some things.

After a really hard winter, 35 degrees can feel warm. Walking a mile can seem like an absolute breeze. And having a separate dining room? That’s a complete luxury.

But, even if you’re like most of us who have eat in kitchens (or sometimes even eat in living rooms), there’s always a solution, especially if you come to your local Chicago furniture store, Wrightwood furniture. We’ve got options for people with no designated eating space, all the way up to those lucky few with full on dining rooms.

Check out just a few of our favorite dining room furniture solutions below!

Chantal Iron Adjustable Bistro Table

Here’s what we consider the best space saving dining solution of all time (although we are a little biased). The beauty of the Chantal Iron Adjustable Bistro Table is its versatility. At 20 inches in diameter, it has a decent amount of space for eating. You can have a cozy 2-person dinner on it! And if you’re apartment doesn’t have a dining room or a kitchen that’s big enough for a dining table and dining chairs, you can keep the Chantal in your living room as either a coffee table or an end table! Simply lower or raise the height, from 31 to 37 inches depending on what you’re using it for. And besides being versatile, this little table is absolutely beautifully crafted. The solid iron base and wood tabletop really make this otherwise simple piece stand out.

Bowman Iron Leather Chair

Looking for a twist on the typical dining room chair? Our Bowman Iron Leather Chair is just what you need. Its simple silhouette combined with its unique materials really makes it stand out. The supple leather seat is not only comfortable, it’s durable! Any spill or scratch that might happen will just add to the character of the chair. The iron legs add an industrial touch to any space and their elegant shape enhances their sophistication. Get 4, 6, or 8 for a matching set or just get one or two and mix them with different styled chairs. One great current trend is to have two matching chairs on one side of the table, another matching pair on the other side, and finally two matching chairs on either end. This method allows you to have a variety of chairs without it looking disjointed or chaotic.

Shutter Sideboard

Sideboards are easily the most multifaceted piece of furniture that you can have in your kitchen or dining room. They can function simply as a buffet, or they can be combined with barstools to be turned into a breakfast bar or breakfast nook. And our Shutter Sideboard is no different. The wonderfully colored reclaimed wood adds character to any dining room.
