Dining Chair options for casual spaces
Many homeowners and designers have said good-bye to the formal dining spaces that were once the norm for most homes. People finally came to the conclusion that this formal space that took up a good amount of square footage to be used maybe a few times a year, was just too valuable. I grew up with a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen, but in all the years I have been married, we have never really had a formal dining room. In some homes, we’ve had two distinct dining spaces, but both very casual. The table in the kitchen was strictly for breakfast or afterschool snacks and the “dining room” was for any meal where we set the table.

Serena & Lily has so many options for chairs to create these casual dining spaces. We currently have the Tucker chairs in our dining room with a farm table my husband built when we were first married. We used old scaffolding planks to give it the “worn” look we were going for back in the 1980s. We were living in California, so finding old barn wood was not an option. What I love about the Tucker chairs is that they really go with any style and are perfectly proportioned. They work with rustic to modern and although completely sturdy, they are easy to take outside when we move the party to the patio.
