Setting the Table this Holiday Season

Setting the Table this Holiday Season

It may still technically be summer, but it’s never too early to start planning for the holiday season. Of course this goes beyond refining your Thanksgiving menu and determining your guest list. If you are thinking about redesigning your dining room, consider stopping by Mum’s Place to learn all about the dining tables we carry. Some of our brands like Nest Home Collections and Moe’s offer dining options ranging in style and size, while Canadel has five distinct collections that allow you to totally customize your table’s size, finish, shape, and details. No matter what style or size constraints you may have, Mum’s Place will help you set the table in time for the holidays.

Emma Dining Table by Nest Home Collections

This Emma Dining Table by Nest Home Collections is a beautiful piece made of solid wood. This table features a beautiful reclaimed extra thick top with decorative and sculptural pedestal base. The carved pedestals are designed with sharp geometric details that contrast with the curving feet at the base, giving off a sturdy but elegant look. And you can feel good about this table too because while it looks great in your home, it’s made out of eco-friendly reclaimed wood!

We would classify this table as French Country because of the shape of the pedestal, the natural wood, and beautiful distressing of the piece. But of course you can pair this with many different styles and accessories including coastal furniture for that naturally relaxed look or modern dining chairs for a more eclectic space. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to finding the perfect chairs, Nest Home Collection also offers matching chairs and benches that compliment the dining table. We recommend pairing this beautiful table with some upholstered dining chairs like the Lucy upholstered chairs by Nest. What makes this reclaimed pine and elm wood table even better is that it is available in a 40” square, 72” and 94” long rectangular table or at counter height, so you know you can fit this beautiful piece in your home!

Champlain Dining Table by Canadel

The Champlain Collection by Canadel mixes timeless elegance with rustic style by combining refined lines with distressed accents. One of our favorite tables is the rectangular Champlain Dining Table that we customize with a distressed black base and a rich walnut stained top. One of the simpler tables available in this collection, this table features simple straight lines with some minor elegant accents. Pair this table with equally customizable chairs that are available as simple wood pieces or upholstered. 

Of course, if you aren’t totally sold on our favorite table, you can design this table to meet all of your style needs by changing the rectangle top to a circular beveled edge, adding a beautifully detailed pedestal base or carved wooden legs, or completing it with a lighter and more natural finish. Beyond these changes, you can switch to a different collection like Downtown for a mid century modern look, Eastside for modern industrial, Gourmet which is perfect for entertaining, Loft for a more natural industrial look, Canadel for a range of styles like classic, farmhouse chic, core, and contemporary, and Signature for a totally bespoke dining room. 

Classic Collection by Canadel

This Classic Collection falls under the umbrella of the Canadel Collection. While the Canadel Collection ranges from classic to contemporary to chic, the Classic Collection is a sophisticated and timeless group. Like the rest of the collections by Canadel, the Classic Collection is available in many different configurations and finishes. One of our favorite tables is the elegant yet simple rectangular dining table. With a beautiful beveled edge to the table top, this piece brings sophistication to any formal dining room. The cylindrical legs add an unusual flair that contrasts the overall shape of the rectangular shape, while complimenting the curved corners of top. The Hazelnut Wash finish has understated color with iridescent brown and grey undertones, allowing you to pair this table with almost any color scheme. 

Surround the Classic Dining Table with complementary upholstered chairs from the same collection, or play with the detailed elements of the table by pairing it with a carved wooden chair and upholstered seat. As always, Canadel offers china cabinets, hutches and consoles within their collections, allowing you complete your dining room with effortless style. 

Bent Dining Table by Moe’s

One of our all time favorite tables (and one of our most popular tables) is the Bent Dining Table by Moe’s. It never stays on our Monterey Showroom floor for very long, and you’ll understand why! This table is an incredible combination of industrial and natural materials. The rustic table features a live edge solid wood table top with two bent steel legs in a dark iron colored finish. The top is made out of Acacia wood, a slow growing tree native to Australia and Hawaii, and because this tree grows slowly, the grain is very fine and the wood is very hard, making it both beautiful and resistant to wear and tear. The wood has some iridescence when oiled and finished, contrasting beautifully with the dark textured steel legs. 

This table (available in sizes extra small, small, large and at counter height) is a part of the Bent Collection which also features a bench seat for the dining table, a coffee table, a console table, and a sideboard, allowing you to fill your dining room with exclusively live-edge furniture. The wide variety of dining room pieces also allows you to use the same motif around your house. Simply use the bench at the entrance to your home, the console table in a hallway or under the TV, and use the sideboard as a vanity in your bedroom.
