An open plan dining room for two, four and six

Center your dinner parties around an extendable table that has plenty of room for a couple or a crowd. And if you have last-minute guests? Unstack a chair and let them have a seat!

An extendable table like EKEDALEN helps make room for many, or a few. So you can host large parties or parties just for you, whenever you want some “me” time.

Choose a set of dining chairs that will last you a lifetime. These leather chairs are stackable and stylish, with a material that gets better with age.

A dining room doesn’t design itself. The beauty of an open space is being able to coordinate different colours in different areas. Here we used bolder colours in the dining area and reserved calming grey shades and plush textiles for the living room to create a softer mood.

Candles and other small accessories can set the mood around the table, near a couch, or somewhere in between.

Keep seasonal decorations, runners, and extra napkins close to the table for an easy dining room refresh. The storage unit’s pattern also adds a subtle hint of style to the room.
