I introduce you to the farmhouse kitchen island:
We're completely aware that this wouldn't necessarily work or fit into any given kitchen, but if it does, don't you just love! We're totally having a KJM...Kitchen Jealousy Moment..BTW, we're all about the acronyms,
(we blame text messaging). For the rest of us that don't have this option, there's more :) How about alternating the seating around the table. Anything goes with this piece. so mix it up and be sure not to go matchy-matchy. A wood bench (even if it's just from your backyard picnic table), on one side of the table with a couple pillows thrown on it, paired with some slipcovered wingback chairs at each end, and a couple random chairs for the other long side, will totally get you on the pages of the home style mags! Or you can add some metal or lucite chairs to this rustic piece for a super modern-meets-the mountains look.
Truly the best part of this table trend is that this piece it totally durable and can take a beating from the most rambuncious kids and messy eaters...like these three hulligans of mine (Jett 5, Evyn & Hattie 2)
We understand that furniture needs to be low maintenance since we as women are high maitenance and we have better things to do than stress about furniture, clean it, fix it, then repeat! So you know when you're getting a La Dolce Villa piece you're getting furniture that's been pampered to perfection along the way and protected to the gills! Our tables have several layers of commercial grade clear coat on them so wiping them up is so easy you can give your toddler the task to do. Also it's protected enough to withsrtand the elements, so go ahead..take it outside back to where it originally came from, and use it for your big summer soiree or even your everyday outdoor dining a la fresca! How Itallian villa would that be! (Picture your neighbors peering through the slats in the fence, green with envy, wondering when they are going to get an invite)!
