Gone are the days when you needed to leave the house to find the dining table of your dreams. Whether you're shopping for a traditional farmhouse design or something more suited to your mid-century modern tastes, there are endless options just a click away. Before you start shopping, just make sure you measure your space, says interior decorator and author of Rental Style, Chelsey Brown.
Brown encourages shoppers to “Map out (on the floor) where the table will be going with painters tape. This will give you an idea of how much space the table you’re eyeing will take up.” Don't overlook quality, either. One way to do this is by always reading reviews first.
Interior designer Diana Weinstein, of DW Designs, points out that functionality and care are also key. For example, do you need it to expand? Where are the legs and how will your chairs fit? What does it need in terms of cleaning and maintenance? Does it need to be assembled? To simplify your shopping process, we've scoured the web and read hundreds of reviews to chisel our list down to the best of the best.
Here, the most beautiful dining tables available online.
Best Industrial: Rivet Industrial Mid-Century Modern Hairpin Dining Table
Rivet, Amazon’s mid-century inspired design brand, continues to drop jaws with their distinct home furnishings. This table—a little bit retro, a little bit industrial—can function as a dining table or even a desk. A hardwood top with a walnut finish floats on black metal hairpin legs.
Reviewers attest that the table is solidly built and quite easy to assemble—taking less than 20 minutes. If you're just as obsessed with the design as we are, you can also add a matching coffee table, side table, or console to fully integrate your living space.
Best Round: Rove Concepts Tulip Table
While most of us would kill for an original Knoll Saarinen Tulip Table (view on Knoll), unfortunately, it isn’t always in the budget. Luckily, this premium reproduction—courtesy of Rove Concepts—is an affordable alternative.
The trademark single-pedestal tulip base is made from strong cast aluminum which supports a heavy, satin-finished lacquer top. While the table is the definition of mid-century design, it can work in pretty much every aesthetic so long as you put thought into the chairs you pair it with. If you do want to stay true to Sarrinen’s vision, order up the matching tulip chairs.
Best Basic: Floyd The Floyd Table
Floyd is a direct-to-consumer furniture company that's all about making our lives easier. Instead of offering tons of style choices, they focus their efforts on developing one amazing no-brainer product in each category.
The Floyd Table is a great example of this. The versatile piece can serve as a desk or dining table for up to four people. Featuring a linoleum and birch wood top and powder-coated steel legs, the coolest thing about this table is that it's available in a bunch of different color combinations—including our favorite, blush and white.
Best Oval: Article Conan Oval Dining Table
An oval dining table is a great compromise between square and round options, and it's an eye-catching way to shape up a boxy space. This mid-century table from Article pairs sculptural rubberwood legs with a veneered, starburst-style top that delivers just the retro glamour we're after.
The table is built to fit four to six people, but reviewers note that it's generously sized and could really fit more. Many people are also quick to note that it doesn't scratch or stain easily.
Best With Leaf: Birchlane Rory Extendable Dining Table
Birchlane's Rory dining table is just the romantic touch your farmhouse-style home needs. Since it's extendable, it's a great option for those with smaller dining spaces who only need extra seating on special occasions.
The antique-looking table features an extra leaf which transforms it from a dining space for six to seating for eight in a matter of minutes. The Rory table is crafted from solid poplar wood and finished with a slightly worn whitewash that lends it a shabby chic feel.
Best Budget: Zinus Jen 47 Inch Dining Table
If you're on the hunt for a simple but refined mid-century modern table and you're on a small budget, stop looking and order this Zinus Jen dining table ASAP. Buyers are blown away by the statement this small and thrifty table makes in any space.
Zinus' dining table is ideal for small dining rooms and even NYC-sized kitchens, plus it can fit a family of four. Reviewers attest to the fact that it's easy to assemble and far surpassed their expectations. It's also available in a walnut finish (for a little extra money), but the natural hue is mid-century to the bone.
Best Stone: CB2 Stone Table Round
We're mildly obsessed with CB2’s stone collection which, along with a side table and coffee table, includes this stunning dining table. Why, you ask? Well, we've seen few options more unique.
Designed by Caleb Zipperer, this vintage-inspired piece creatively layers stone, brass, and glass. While function is always the main purpose of a dining table, this dimensional piece basically doubles as an art installation.
Best Traditional: Pottery Barn Mateo Extendable Dining Table
If you already have a set of show-stopping chairs that you'd like to be the focal point of your space, opting for a simple and straightforward table is the way to go. This high-quality, classically designed wood table from Pottery Barn is pretty much a blank slate for your dining room.
The Matteo Extendable Dining Table features a weathered, distressed finish that delivers a subtle warmth and character that won't overwhelm your space. It also features a butterfly leaf which can transform the six-person table to an eight-person table in an instant.
Best Concrete: West Elm Tower Dining Table
Concrete in the dining room? Yes, please. This genius seating situation starts with a sculptural blackened brass base that's then topped off with an industrial-leaning concrete tabletop. The result? A rustic but refined table.
The overall look of West Elm's Tower Dining Table can be softened up with the addition of some upholstered seating (we suggest velvet). That said, you can also choose to embrace the table's more masculine look by purchasing the matching chairs.
Best for Small Spaces: Anthropologie Anya Travertine Dining Table
One of the more unique dining tables we've ever seen, Anthropologie’s Anya features a smooth travertine top set above cylindrical hardwood legs. It has a truly organic feel to it, so it'll add instant visual interest to your space without overwhelming your existing decor.
At 29.5 x 48 inches, the Anya is small enough for a compact dining space, but big enough to accommodate four to six people. We suggest pairing it with a statement-making upholstered chair.
Best Made-In-America: Hooker Furniture Archivist Extendable Dining Table
Hooker is one of our favorite made-in-America furniture companies and this stunning extendable dining table exemplifies their superior craftsmanship. The Archivist's timeless design is inspired by both French antiques and traditional farmhouse designs.
Of course, the table prioritizes function alongside form; it comes with two 18-inch leaves which can extend it to a whopping 122 inches long. If you've been looking for an excuse to host more dinner parties, this is certainly it.
