A stunning statement table always stands at the centre of a stylish dining room. The Brothers have a knack for finding spectacular pieces that immediately elevate the space.
Wooden You Know It
A thick, live-edge wood dining-room table not only provides a steady surface for formal dining but also adds visual interest with its natural knots and attractive grains. Find more creative ways to use reclaimed wood in your kitchen.
Take a Seat
Having plush seating around the dining table is also at the top of the list for the Brothers. Providing a comfortable environment for communal eating and lively conversation is key.
Jonathan and Drew know that have entertaining supplies close at hand is helpful when in the throes of a dinner party, so having a special spot in the dining room to store extra glasses, cocktail accessories and other party accoutrement is a priority.
