Breakfast Nook Pairings

This weekend our design planning for the new house began to take shape. Of all the rooms in the house, I can already tell you that my favorite is going to be what I’m calling the breakfast nook.


While its purpose will be much larger – I plan to have shelves for books and secondary table or built-in that will be our place for mail, calendars, etc. – the focus of the space is to have a secondary area for us to eat small meals, for the little one to do her homework, and for me to have a place for my laptop when I’m working from home.

I haven’t yet decided if we’ll do a bench or not – I really want to. But regardless, the most fun part of putting together a little nook like this is the endless possibilities for pairing small tables and chairs together! And, because it’s not a main space, I get to be more playful in my selections!

Any obvious duo of course, won’t do. So I’ve dreamed up a few scenarios that would satiate my appetite for contrasting styles and unexpected pairings…

1. White Drop Chair, Design Within Reach + 2. Lombard Table, Jan Showers // 3. Copper Real Good Chair, Blu Dot + 4. White Salt Table, Design Within Reach // 5. Ghost Chair + 6. Marble + Wood Dining Table

I’m mildly obsessed with the adorable shape of the ‘drop’ chair – a more unique option to the egg chair with a much smaller footprint. I love the idea of it being paired with something traditional, but just as sweet and whimsical in it’s own way.

The benefit of a super simple table is that it allows for a chair that’s gone a bit more crazy with personality. And of course you can’t go wrong with a ghost chair matched with something a little more country.
