The Best Furniture for Entertaining Guests

I’m a very sociable person – I love to go out with my friends and cook dinner for family. But I rarely invite people for dinner – I just don’t have the space or furniture for entertaining. If you’re finding that you have the same problem as me, read on because I’ve compiled a list of the best furniture for entertaining, whether it be friends, family, or even the in-laws!

Langli Extending Dining Table

Living in a flat, I don’t have loads of space to spare. This means that I don’t want a huge, cumbersome table taking up all the room. The Langli Extending Dining Table is perfect for me though; the design is simple and Scandi-influenced which fits in with my scheme, not a heavy, overpowering piece. The table can comfortably seat 6 people when closed and 10 when extended for entertaining the whole family. The table contains 2 leaves, extending it from 180cm to 270cm. The end extending mechanism means that I can extend the table without any help too.

Ludlow Drinks Cabinet

If you like wine, you’ll love the Ludlow Drinks Cabinet. It has plenty of storage for some great nights in, with space for 20 bottles of your favourite tipple, and the cupboard above features a wooden shelf and a rack to store your wine glasses. A drawer situated below the cupboard offers storage for corkscrews or your favourite wine tasting guides, as well as a handy detachable tray for preparing and serving drinks.

Statesman Wine Table

If you don’t have the space for a drinks cabinet, take a look at the Statesman Wine Table. This table has an elegant turned centre with three stable legs to avoid wobbling and spillage. The natural chalk finished top shows the grain of the wood, and the centre pedestal body is available in 5 colours: Natural Chalk, Dove, Otter, Hare and Raven. This is a great focal point in a room, and a great place to display and serve.

Langli Extending Coffee Table

Perhaps it’s too early for wine (is it ever too early for wine?), or you prefer a hot drink, in which case we’ve got something for you too. The Langli Extending Coffee Table offers ample space for your remotes, magazines and a cuppa when closed, but when friends come over, it can extend to offer space for those extra cups and a pack of biscuits or two! The middle also offers some internal storage when closed.

Elise Upholstered Dining Chair

If you are dining with friends, the Elise is a wonderfully comfortable dining chair. The seat is webbed for a firm, comfortable sit, and the buttoned back adds a charming detail. These elegantly curved chairs work in any setting, but work particularly well when paired with the Elise Extending Dining Table.

The Elise Dining Chairs are available in a large range of fabrics from the Jasper & Tallow swatch to suit your home.

Now that we’ve taken the hard work out of choosing the right furniture, you can have all you need for the perfect afternoon tea, girls night in or family meal!
