Wayfair’s First-Ever Save Big, Give Back Sale Has Tons of Small-Space Dining Room Finds
Anyone living in a small apartment will tell you: It’s not uncommon to eat dinner at a coffee table or kitchen counter. But whether dining solo or with your family, you don’t need a formal dining room or eat-in-kitchen to enjoy mealtime at home; you just need the right furnishings! And if you’re short on precious space, those furnishings need to be multi-functional. Thankfully, Wayfair has tons of smart, space-saving decor, and it’s up to 80% off during their Save Big, Give Back event. From now through April 30, you can score deals on a space-saving dining set, a multi-purpose buffet, and even a bar cart, and Wayfair will donate 10% of the profits to Feeding America’s COVID-19 response fund. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorite small-but-smart dining solutions below, but you can browse all of the savings here.
1. Frida 3-Piece Dining Set
If you’re thinking, I don’t have room for a table and two benches, look a little closer and you’ll see that the benches in this dining set can be cleverly tucked under the table. The dining table itself has a long, narrow design — reminiscent of a writing desk — so it takes up minimal space. Don’t need two benches at the table? Use one as occasional seating in a bedroom or living area, or to display plants or design books. The set comes in three neutral colors that will complement almost any decor. Looking for something a little more glamorous? Here’s another option we love.

2. Raabe Kitchen Cart
Wheeled furniture is often overlooked but can be a gamechanger in small spaces. Think of this classic rolling cart as an extension of your kitchen or pantry. It has two wide bottom shelves that can hold appliances, storage baskets, dishware, or your cookbook collection, and the wood topper resembles a butcher block, making it perfect as a prepping or serving station.

3. Gracie Upholstered Side Chair (Set of 2)
If you love mid-century modern aesthetics without the hefty price tag, then you’ll want to snap up these gorgeous dining chairs. The sleek wooden frame looks attractive while the cushy padded seat makes it comfortable for long dinners or for your WFH setup. If you don’t have quite enough room for two full-sized dining chairs, Wayfair has lots of stackable chairs that take up minimal floor space.

4. Dostie 48-inch Wide Buffet Table
If you need extra storage for your growing dinnerware or barware collection and have a few feet of space along a wall, this 16-inch deep buffet table is a stylish solution. With a mix of wood, glass, and dark metalwork, the unit’s lowest level has three doors that open to adjustable shelves for storing serving plates or decorative objects. The area between the lower storage and the buffet top is tall enough to hold glasses, stacked plates, or storage bins. Display framed photos or a small bar on top, or, for a different look, use it as an entertainment stand.

Store your favorite stemware and spirits in this rolling bar cart. With spots for four bottles and a rack to hang glasses, you can (literally) bring the party to you! A caged storage area above the wheels can securely hold additional bottles of wine or mixers, an ice bucket, or cocktail-making tools. Line up low-ball glasses or stack appetizer plates and napkins on the middle shelf. Want to enjoy breakfast in bed? The tray is removable and can be carried using the two sturdy handles.

7. Emestine Extendable Drop Leaf Dining Table
Like a Swiss army knife, this gorgeous oak-colored table performs multiple jobs, all from one compact base. When fully extended, it can fit up to six diners, thanks to two table toppers that hinge open and flatten. When not in use, they stack discreetly so the table can be used as a buffet or console. One large drawer can store linens or serving bowls, and a generous open shelf can be used for displaying books or serveware. An integrated wine rack can hold up to seven bottles — making it the ultimate entertaining station.
