When I was in my early twenties I always thought things like a dining room table or leather ottoman were for adults with real homes, then we bought our first condo and all of a sudden I was an adult with a real home. That happened too fast!
One of the things I was most excited to search for when we went furniture shopping at Crate and Barrel was a dinning room table, I have not had one in many years because apartments don’t usually have the space for one, so this was my highlight! Originally I was thinking something classic and wood, something we could continue to grow into, then I saw it – the one! I have always wanted a table that had a raw natural wood edge, and I am so in love that it has a modern style when combined with the steel matte black angled legs. I always had the impression that a table like this was too cool for me, haha maybe it is but lets go with it. I also thought it was too modern for me to buy. Honestly, I love a mix of modern and contemporary style and always go towards a classic style when shopping for furniture because I am too afraid of going too wild. This time I decided, why not! While we were having fun, we decided to let our true style fly and threw in some fun iron dining chairs with leather chair cushions. I am a huge fan of mixing materials and this dining table allows me to show that off!
