My dad has a little breakfast nook at his house where I often ate most of my meals growing up. It’s too small for a normal dining set though, so we’ve always had a dinette set instead. This specific dinette set was super old — my dad bought it used about seven years before I was born. So more than twenty years later, you can imagine that this thing was on its last leg (pun intended).
Well, about a month ago the table cracked right across the middle. My dad came home, dropped a package on it, and it just broke. So, since I work for a furniture company, he called me up to ask for help. He has a more country-style kitchen and nook, so we shopped around looking for that style. Okay, I was the one who cared more about style continuity, because my dad doesn’t really know much about style or type. He just knows what he likes and doesn’t like. However, we were able to agree that it should be a wood table, with lighter coloring and classic spindle-back chairs. I almost convinced him to get a counter-height set, but he overruled me.
After several days of searching, we finally found one that fit both his criteria and country-style standards. It was a little stressful, as all furniture shopping can be, but his new Market Square Boyne 5-Piece Drop Leaf Dining Set looks great in his breakfast nook. And now he once again has somewhere to eat (and put his mail), so everyone’s happy.
