IKEA’s Cleanest, Simplest Dining Table

A good dining table, in my opinion, is one that easily disappears from view. A table, after all, is meant to hold dishes and elbows and wine glasses and everything else that really makes up the business of living in the kitchen. A dining table does its job, and stays out of the way, like this lovely new one from IKEA.

This ash veneer table is utterly simple, with rounded edges and just enough of an angle to the legs to give it a little personality. I like the brightness of the wood, which keeps it feeling light and right for a small space.

And just like any good simple table, it does its job and stays out of the way.
