A well-curated dining set not only serves as a functional space for meals but also adds character and style to your home. Whether you have a spacious dining room or a cosy dining nook, investing in the right dining set can elevate your dining experience and make your home feel more inviting.
Depending on the style or function you’re going for, we’ve grouped these dining sets into a few categories: modern, Scandinavian, mid-century modern, and space-saving.
Whether you’re moving into a new space or looking to refresh your dining room, let’s explore 8 of the best dining sets and why they would make the perfect choice for you!
The modern and minimalist style has gained immense popularity in recent years, with its sleek lines, clean design, and emphasis on functionality. If you appreciate the simplicity and prefer a dining set that exudes modern minimalism, the Sloane Dining Set would make a good choice.
The Sloane Dining Table Set is ideal for a modern home.
The dining table’s slabbed legs create a substantial presence in the dining room, and its fluted panel design accentuates the modern look. You can choose from matching leather benches and chairs, or performance fabric chairs to go with the table.
The Scandinavian design is known for its minimalist and natural aesthetic. A dining set with a light-coloured wooden table, such as oak or beech, paired with chairs featuring clean lines, organic shapes, and a mix of natural materials like wood and leather, can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your dining area.
The Kelsey Marble Dining Table Set is the ideal choice if you’re going for a Scandinavian look. The sophisticated Carrara marble table top paired with warm wood tones creates an inviting mood.

The table base comes in two different colours, a walnut stain and natural ash, to create different looks. If you’re planning to create a more intimate dining space, the walnut stain would be a better fit. For a brighter and airier setting, natural ash would be perfect.
The mid-century modern style, characterised by its clean lines and organic shapes, continues to be a popular choice for those who appreciate retro aesthetics. For this category, we have a few options that would work great in your dining space.
