Dining Sets: Furniture Trends We’re Loving

We’re nearing the halfway point of 2024, so it’s a good time to review some of the trends designers predicted for this year. Whether your family eats in the kitchen or the dining room, the demand for dining sets never goes away. You need somewhere to sit while you eat, and you can go formal, casual, or somewhere in between. This furniture set is something you’re going to see every day, so you want to pick something you like and that you’ll still like a few years down the road. Design trends shouldn’t dictate your tastes, but they can give you some inspiration when you’re shopping for new furniture.


Let’s explore some of this year’s trends for dining sets that our team at Chair Fair is excited to see.


Dark Wood Is Back

When you think of a traditional dining room, the image that usually comes to mind is a big table of dark wood with matching chairs. It’s bold, it’s classic, and we’re happy it’s back. Other colors and materials have had their moment in the last few years, but the classics never really go away. While the furniture shapes and styles reflect modern sensibilities, traditional dark woods are becoming popular again.


Embrace Upholstery and Soft Furnishings

In the past few years, comfort has made its way into our dining rooms, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Upholstery also allows for countless more design possibilities. Although, in the past, families with kids or pets have shied away from soft furnishings in dining areas, design innovations have removed many difficulties. There are stain-resistant fabrics and washable covers that make cleanup easy.


Spread out with Bench Seating

Bench seating, also called baguette seating, used to be something you only saw in breakfast nooks or at kitchen tables. Recently, we’re seeing more of it in dining rooms. Bench seating is practical, space-saving, and comfortable, so it’s a great choice for homes that often have a lot of people around the table. It also gives you another chance to incorporate patterns and colors with fabric.
