Coastal kitchen with a dining nook and pedestal tablePedestal tables offer a lot more than meets the eye. They offer more space, both in actual table top space and seating options, and give everyone a seat at the table. That means everyone gets enough room and there isn’t an awkward person trying to lean in to be a part of the conversation.

A pedestal table is nice change of pace from traditional dining table options. They help out in those tight spots by creating extra space and give you a little wiggle room in the corners.

These tables, like most tables, come in two sizes: large and small. A large pedestal table is great way to entertain more than two to three people. They offer the space you need and give everyone the opportunity to comfortably interact with one another at the table. For those of you with small nook or kitchen space, you’d be more interested in a small pedestal table. They seat two to three comfortably and create a person and intimate experience while filling the small amount of space provided.

Take a look at these great pedestal tables below! See how they are used and how the designers placed them in the space!

Modern coastal living room with unique furnitureA good coffee table can set the tone and feel for any living room. It gives the space a spark while letting people know you’re not afraid to get creative and flex your design muscles. A living room is typically formed with a sofa, a chair of sorts, a side table or two, a rug and a coffee table. And usually they’re all arranged so that the coffee table is in the center. We say usually because we have seen a few interesting living room arrangements, but everyone has their style and that’s what keeps design fun.
