Tori’s Top Picks- Dining Sets

What recent college graduate online shops for dining tables? This one does. My parents are looking to move into a new home this Spring and I have been more than helpful sending out subtle hints that their soon to be dining room could use a little TLC.  With a very large family and a mother who loves being a host, the dining room takes center stage. After looking through the different dining tables and chairs that Sheely’s has to offer, I believe I found my top three favorites in this edition of Tori’s Top Picks.

The first dining set I fell head over heels for is this beautiful Stanley Furniture Coastal Living Retreat collection. A perfect mix between 20th century cottage and 21st century design, this formal dining group brings contemporary costal design to the Midwest. The gentle curves of the soft Wayfarer Side chairs are in resemblance to the rolling sea and ocean waves. The rectangular ceruse oak top table extends from 72 inches to 112 inches, perfect for a family affair! The table itself is available in a total of six different finishes to please anyone’s personal taste. (Sailbox White, Spanish Orange, Belize Teal, English Blue, Gloucester Grey and Cerused Oak)


Although this dining set falls more into the casual side rather than formal, I am obsessed with this look! The Magnussen Home Karlin Dining Room Group includes elements such as casters and metal plates which provide an industrial, modern look.  Mission style slat back chairs pair beautifully with the tall, upholstered, sophisticated chairs with nail head studs which sit at the head of the table. If the tightly upholstered back chairs are too fancy for your liking, opt for the church pew bench style seating!  The extended leaves in this modern and casual dining table allow you to create a space perfect for any family size!


How classy and sophisticated is this dining set from American Drew Jessica McClinton’s Boutique Collection? This richly ornamented and very detailed dining group screams romance and charm. Crafted from Oak and Pecan Veneers, Silver Leaf, Metal and Marble, this table is the center piece to any dining room. The unique accents of ornate traditional forms are reminiscent of the past and inspired by the present. The upholstered arm chairs are dressed with tufted buttons, S scroll arms and are the definition of class. This dining group is sure to fill any space with charm and sophistication!

  1. number 3 looks lovely… BUT, if I sat in those chairs, my chin would be level with the table… (pun intended!), and this is a problem I find with most ‘high end’ dining sets… totally impractical!!!
