It took me a while to wrap my head around having a concrete table in our 18th Century house. I really started to appreciate having a workhouse table with the kids. A couple of toddlers can extinguish even the strongest desire for a new dining table. For art projects, banging spoons, sticky fingers, smashed peas. So I’ve moved on to thinking about the dining room chairs.
My parents had a Mid-Century modern dining room set with leather chairs and there is something to be said for a comfortable dining chair. I’m currently looking for a vintage set to upholster, either in indoor/outdoor fabric (for practical reasons with the kids) or a combination of fabric and “engineered leather” or nylon fiber matrix (majilite is a great source).
