When I met my husband, he wined and dined me.  We found ourselves chatting for almost four hours on our first date — I like to joke that I drank so many glasses of water from constant talking {and blind date nerves} that I was hydrated for a week.

Two kids later, dinnertime is still that special time of the day to sit down with the kids and catch up on funny stories from everyone’s separate adventures.

Wherever your family congregates to celebrate the day — I believe your dining furniture should be comfortable enough to let the conversation linger as long as it likes.

Here are some of my favorite (and most comfortable!) dining furniture pieces:

All designs available to special order through Amethyst.

 Bistro inspiration overload -- the planters on tables, green chairs, endless character -- why has color become such a naughty word in interiors?  I miss it!  Let's all agree to bring back color.
