Generally, the country‐style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust. They also have an uncomplicated design suitable for most schemes, although, pleasingly, many country tables feature elegantly turned legs that support the tabletop. The only real consideration in buying this style of table is whether to go for an upmarket one, such as a French colonial table, or one with the rustic appeal of an English country farmhouse. Whatever you choose to suit your home, you can be assured that both will look drop‐dead gorgeous when they are set and dressed for a country farmhouse feast.

"When I found these, I knew they would be key pieces to the room. They are showstoppers", Ricco says. The warm bronze on the base and hardware is part of a wide variety of mixed metals in the room, while the light base stands out against the dark cabinet. The etching even mimics the artwork.

This is a terrific palette for an office or a kid's or teen's bedroom. The grays have a soothing vibe, but the heart‐racing red injects some energy into the space.

If you love hunting for vintage chairs, a great way to build a set is by keeping an eye out for chairs made of the same material, or in a distinctive shape – cane‐backed, ladder‐back, wood, metal, wicker and so on.

Buy secondhand for extra lived‐in character, or source a vintage‐look piece about town (feather‐filled cushions offer an added slouch factor). Prettify it with a floral cushion, then sit back and relax with a cuppa (or glass of port).
