    What Does Your Table Design Say About You?

    From the clothes you put on in the morning to the table you dine on at night, you’re making design decisions all day – whether you know it or not. You make thousands of these decisions throughout the course of a day without even thinking about it. There’s an interior designer inside of you. No need to hire one!

    But there’s one piece of furniture in your house which tells your guests everything they need to know: your dining room table, the main table in your home. This is probably the largest, priciest table you own, and it lives in a communal space where you spend loads of time. You eat here, you socialize here, you live here.

    To help you get in touch with your inner designer, we’ve put together this quick handy guide. You may be surprised how much the character of this table says about you. Which of these styles are you drawn to?
