I love seeing my dining room full of happy people; the table covered in drinks and dishes and FOOD. I have one problem though: my family is outgrowing my table. My kids are getting bigger and so are their friends. The family is expanding (my sister’s baby, my niece’s new boyfriend, etc.). More and more frequently I feel like I don’t have enough space around the table. My only option is to banish some people to the kitchen but I think that would just ruin the vibe so, in the spirit of togetherness, I have started my quest for a bigger and better dining set.
Lucky for me,
Morris Home Furnishings
just uploaded their new
Fall Dining 2016 Catalogue
. O-M-WOW! I am in love with so many of them and have no clue how to pick! They are all so unique, there is definitely something for everyone. I have narrowed it down to my top five absolute favorites which I have reviewed below. I need to put the pedal to the metal because Thanksgiving is fast approaching! Hopefully this will help me decide which one to get and maybe help inspire your decision making process as well.
The Platinum Collection
the Platinum collection
would be great in almost any home. It adapts to any situation thanks to the adjustable table leaf in the middle. Its clean lines are contemporary but it still has that classic feel which I consider a good thing for my home. It will stand up to the wear and tear of my children while also staying stylish for years. No one wants their home to look dated after all! I especially love the beautiful cross grain inlay on the surface. Featured in the modern studio lifestyle at Morris, I think the Platinum collection would create a beautiful gathering place for my family.
The Providence Collection
Oh yes! I can definitely imagine my family gathered around
the Providence collection
. How special would Thanksgiving be this year? The candles glowing and the table laden with thanksgiving classics all atop the rich wood finish of this table. The plush chairs are relaxed and comfortable but the detail in the legs and the dark finish create an upscale feel that I personally love to bring into my home decor. The Providence collection is part of the Morris Heirloom Classic lifestyle. Just check out the
Morris pinterest page
dedicated to this lifestyle and I’m sure you will understand why I am so obsessed.
The Elance Collection
The Elance collection
was on the cover of the
Morris Fall Dining Catalogue
and GASP! It took my breath away! Look at those dramatic chair backs! I mean how lush can it get? It would feel like you were at a five-star hotel every time you sat down to dinner. The top of this table is as unique as the chairs too. There is an elm veneer on the surface creating a unique grain and texture that I love. The Glam lifestyle is not always suitable for a home with children but I think this dining set fits the bill. The removable table leaf in the center of the table allows for large dinner parties but once removed, creates a cozier feel I know my family will love.
The Darling Collection
I have got to give it to Paula Deen. Her charm and southern hospitality shine through in this set. She always says, “Treat family like company, and company like family.” If
the Darling collection
doesn’t inspire you to take that to heart, nothing else will! Paula is featured in the Farmhouse Chic lifestyle at Morris (of course). Look at the details on the legs of this table! Gorgeous! I’ve never seen another dining table quite like it. I also really love the mid-tone brown stain on the wood because it is warm and welcoming. Just what our growing family needs!
The Creston Collection
Last but certainly not least, is
the Creston collection
. Creston – wait for it – is MIX and MATCH! What? It’s like your own custom dining set without the cost! You can match the pieces perfectly for a more elegant appearance or mix styles to make something that’s eclectic and uniquely yours. There are so many options in the
A ‘la Carte
section of Morris’s website. I love the idea of this set because it can truly be anything I want it to be.
Aren’t they all just gorgeous? I still don’t know for sure what I will choose. I’m leaning towards the Darling dining set because of its classic charm but who knows! I will probably change my mind again by this time tomorrow. One thing is for sure: Thanksgiving this year is going to be an absolute showstopper!
Stay tuned for the next post on November 7
. It will be all about customer favorites at Morris this season!
