Kitchen

Hi
I found this dinner set (Dinette Set) : https://www.surplusfurniture.com/kin...nette-set.html at a very low price online.
I want to keep it in the kitchen. I have a traditional kitchen with both white and brown colour furniture.
How do you think this dining set will look in my kitchen?

Well opinions are a dime a dozen around here, but having said that, it will be barely ok for sitting down to eat, but not lingering.

I like the look, but probably not good for old people or long dinners.

Doesn't look comfortable. If you have a traditional kitchen, maybe you should consider more traditional furniture.

I must say that it looks a bit more like patio furniture than dining room furniture, or maybe a set for a breakfast nook.

Lollie, do you have a separate dining room? Would this just be used for breakfast/lunch?

Many of us are older here so chairs without backs are not particularly popular.
As a Dining Set, then no.

Sorry, but it is cute!

How do you think this dining set will look in my kitchen?
I tend to go with the others who say that it's very small and looks uncomfortable. There are 4 chairs - would the table be big enough to seat 4 people round it? It seems rather expensive too.

It's not to my taste but then I have a house furnished with family heirlooms going back to the 1860s (by choice) so who am I to know about modern furniture. I go with William Morris's principle - "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." It works for me and can be applied to any age or style of furniture and accessories.

Go for it if it works for you. (Mind you if you're asking us I suspect you probably have your doubts.)


(PS My home is not a set for a Gothic horror movie!!!)
