Easter is a great time of year to bring the whole family and many friends together to celebrate with a big Sunday Lunch and too many chocolate eggs! Make sure your dining room is ready for your extra guests with some of our clever dining solutions...
Here at Myakka we recognise the importance of choosing the right dining furniture for you. Dining furniture is often a significant investment and making sure that it is right for you and your family is vital to make sure you get many happy years use from it. So to help with making that decision we have put together a useful guide to our dining tables and chairs.
One of the first steps is to look at the amount of space you have available, remember to factor in the space chairs take up and the fact that people need to get in and out of the chairs and around the table.
Then you need to look at how many people will be sitting around the dining table, for special occasions such as Easter and everyday living, the important thing to remember is that it has to be practical for everyday dining.
Once you have the dimensions and the number of people the table has to sit, then you can start to look at the different styles that are available to you. All of the Mallani dining furniture is made from solid Sheesham wood and is available in sets with dining tables and chairs. We also have the Stonemill Dining Set which has been crafted from reclaimed pine wood.
If you wanted something quite traditional but have a small space the Mallani Small Dining Table may be perfect. At 90cm wide and 150cm long this table will comfortably sit four people but will easily stretch to six when needed.
If the small dining table sounds perfect for everyday use but you need something bigger from time to time, then the Mallani Extending Dining Table may make the perfect alternative. The central section is the same size as the Mallani Small Dining Table and there are two leaves that that slide into the central section to extend the surface by 90cm making it 240cm long and big enough to sit 6 very comfortably all the way up to 10 guests for those special occasions.
If you have a larger room, a big family or lots of guests the Mallani Large Dining Table may be the ideal for you. At 2m long and 1m wide this table is perfect for entertaining. Wide enough to be able to handle all the food and crockery that celebrations bring and long enough to sit 8 people comfortably. This table is perfect for busy, friendly homes.
Whatever size table suits you, the chairs are the next essential requirement. We have a selection of two different style chairs. Our most popular chairs are the Mallani Upholstered Chairs. Finished with a cotton-rich natural colour chair pad these chairs would feel at home with any décor. Both smart and comfortable these chairs are a really popular option.
If you wanted to add your own seat pad then we have three other chairs that may suit. The Delhi Dining Chairs are neat and compact. These are a design classic and will suit any décor perfectly.
The Stonemill Dining Set is the perfect alternative if you wanted something in lighter wood. Made from reclaimed pine, this table is full of character and comes with two benches – perfect for the whole family. This set would be perfect for a busy family kitchen and will fit into the family life like it has always been there.
Whatever you choose, all the Myakka dining furniture is classic in design and will last a lifetime. With an occasional wax and polish, the wood will keep giving a natural lustre and shine time and time again. Remember Mallani dining tables are available as sets with the choice of two different chair styles to suit you.
