Serve up new dining looks

PinkNews Staff Writer June 28, 2008

When people think about giving their home interior a makeover, it’s often about a new colour scheme and replacing the three-piece suite with something a bit more up to date. But if you are a dinner party sort of person who likes to make an impression on guests, it makes sense to look at the dining room particularly.

More than just the decor on the walls, thinking about the furniture can help you update and personalise your dining space with a brand new look. Furniture Village has recently unveiled a selection of four very different dining styles, one of which could be just what you are looking for, whether that be sleek and contemporary, traditional or rustic. All dining sets are perfect for entertaining at home whatever the occasion.

The New York range is all about inject style and vibrancy into your dining experience. With contemporary light reflective chrome and a choice of lively colours, you can effortlessly recreate that seventies retro look. Its use of smooth sleek lines and high gloss finish will instantly help define your dining area into a stylish contemporary space – perfect for socialising. The New York set is also ideal for stylish kitchens or compact apartments.

A more traditional feel can be had with the Hawthorn theme. Handcrafted from solid oak and oak veneers and luxuriously upholstered in stylish brown leather, Hawthorn will bring contemporary elegance to any dining space.

This suite offers the perfect blend of modern design, combining stunning craftsmanship with practicality and comfort. Perfect for a large family gathering, the table can extend to seat 10 and forms the centrepiece to modern family living. The look can be completed with a matching three-door sideboard featuring soft close drawers.

The Rossini set, by contrast, is all about transporting designer glamour straight to your dining room. This collection from Italy was designed by Giorgio Soressi. A sleek cosmopolitan range of furniture, it is characterised by a glossy dark walnut veneer to give an elegant and high glamour finish.

The table is extendable with additional leaves and features a unique solid centre wood block with inlaid grooves. Chair seats are beautifully upholstered in luxurious soft cream, offering a wonderful contrast to the high gloss deep walnut. Furnish your room with the rest of the range to create a seductively enticing dining experience.

But if you feel that rustic charm is the feel you want to create in your dining room, the Avignon range may be just what you need. Handcrafted from solid Acacia hardwood, it will bring an immediate impression of smart country living.

The quality crafted country style dining table is available in two sizes and comes with four chairs, all hand waxed to a beautiful finish. Elegant and yet beautifully practical and solid, the Avignon set will withstand the toughest rigours of family life.
Avignon is truly a triumph of design that’s perfectly formed to create a warm and inviting dining space. The range of matching pieces can be used to complete the look in more than one room.

All these ranges can be seen at any of Furniture Village’s 35 stores around the country or you can go online and order from Furniture Village can also professionally install your purchase into your home, remove all packaging and even old furniture if required. All items come with a five-year guarantee with up to three years’ interest free credit.
