Sturdy, versatile, and true to form, traditional wood dining tables—be it a long and narrow walnut stunner or a round reclaimed antique—are favorites for a reason. Often taking a back seat so a loud wallpaper print
or striking statement light fixture
can shine, dining tables
have long been thought of in terms of function. But what if, for once, the table itself was the star of the room?
Luckily, inspired alternatives exist—and, we have to admit, we’re loving the fresh perspectives they quite literally bring to the table. Unwaveringly bold and intensely hued, the fearless surfaces ahead serve as a reminder that color is best served alongside the main course.Cabo Indoor/Outdoor Dining Table, Anthropologie, $798.00
