A blog on modern living

Create a dedicated eating and entertaining space in a small dining room or kitchen with functional, modern furniture. Take a look at the best small dining room ideas and some of our favorite tiny tips and products.

Use artisanal cutting boards for prep and later for presentation

Hosting dinner in a small kitchen? Use cutting boards for prep and later for presentation or serving (after a quick wash, of course!).

Define space with a rug

The right size rug can help define a small dining space. Bonus for flat-weaves or other short pile options – they make it easy to smoothly move chairs over the rug and to vacuum. Need help choosing the right size rug? We’ve got you (and your floor) covered with this helpful rug size guide.

Make stools and benches extra cozy

Throw pillows and blankets add a modern, cozy touch to any bench or stool and help round out the look. This is especially helpful in open concept spaces or studios where you want every space to feel inviting.

Drop-leaf and extension tables

A drop-leaf table is the easiest way to get more surface area in a hurry. This is a great solution for hosting guests and it can double as a flexible food prep station. You can also easily accommodate more guests on the fly with an extension table. Extra points if the table features self-storing leaves!
