Ad – Family Dining with Habitat

In collaboration with Habitat 

Coming from a family of five children I know only too well how important eating together as a family was to my parents. It was a time we were all certain to be in the same place at the same time. A time to recount stories of our day and enjoy each other’s company. When Habitat got in touch to ask if we would like to try out some of their dining furniture for our own family dining times, I was more than happy to get on board.

As a brand, we have used Habitat pieces in our home for over a decade (and going either further back to before we met Tom, who used to work in their Bristol store!). We’ve always known that the quality of their products is held to a really high standard and from a design point of view are always on point and definitely to our taste.

We chose the Belami table which is perfect for a family of four. We didn’t want to go for an overly large table as we like to keep this middle room quite clear and felt that anything larger would crowd it (and be an excuse to dump things on the table more!). It’s an ash table which then has a clear lacquer coating on top. I love how light the wood is as our home doesn’t get a huge amount of light, so I feel like it somehow brightens the room. We paired it with the Belami benches that you can also get in this range rather than dining room chairs. You can buy the table as a dining table set or with or without the benches, but I think they work perfectly, and you can also store them under the table to create even more space in the room if needed.

To decorate our beautiful new tableware, I went with the dark linen table runner and napkins. We then chose the Maddox plates and pasta bowls which are made from grey speckled stoneware. For the cutlery, we chose the Turini in satin which I particularly love as it had a more matte effect than the usual shine you get with crockery (it’s also great to photograph for this reason too!)

One of my favourite pieces is the Oliver pink speckled oven dish. It feels like a real display piece as well as being perfect to cook those firm family favourites in. I love the speckled effect on the cream side of the dish against the pink which will match against the grey of the Maddox plates.

The clock above the table is the Spektrum brown clock which I think goes perfectly with our slightly retro / Scandinavian themed home.

Lastly, we chose the Klein gold brushed brass tea light candelabra as a bit of a centerpiece for when we are entertaining. For the drinking glasses, we opted for Dora pink glass tumblers and the Vienna champagne flutes.

We absolutely love all our new Habitat dining pieces. Perfect for family meals and also for special occasions!

Thanks so much to Habitat for sponsoring this post.
