It’s not easy to find a dining table with a really modern aesthetic. Particularly one that suits your lifestyle. So, in this post I selected a few really modern dining tables, to set the tone for a contemporary, minimalist, Scandinavian, chic, or cool dining area. If you love perfect geometry, balanced proportions, neutral colors, clean lines, and noble materials your modern dining table is here. Seriously. Even if you are looking for a gorgeous child-proof table or the coolest bachelor table, if you are allergic to hosting or if you are the official hostess of the family/neighborhood.

For some people, the dining room is an outdated room. The contemporary open floor plans integrated the eating area with the kitchen but for many, the dining table is only used for special occasions. Our “modern” lifestyle, always in a hurry or connected to some device (odds are you’re reading my words from your phone, right?) pushed the mealtime to the kitchen island, to the couch, or (appalling) even walking. I love eating full meals at the table, so, for me, the dining table is a very special place.
