Not Your Grandma’s Dining Room

A few years ago I was in Boston at my boyfriends grandma’s home. She was about to reach 100 years in age and insisted on making us dinner. She proceeds to remove her vintage silverware, plates, cups and saucers, fabric napkins with a beautiful floral tablecloth, all from a Victorian style buffet chest. The candlesticks were lit, the matching table and chairs were filled with hungry family members and dinner was served. 

It seems like gone are the days of making a production out of dinner time but I do love the unique style everyone is using to assemble a dining set. Apparently anything goes when it comes to tables and chairs. Benches, crates and mix-matched metal and wood chairs are the new farmhouse look and I love it!
