When it comes to listing the things one usually searches for on Etsy, handmade dining room tables don’t necessarily come out on top. And the reasons are easy to guess: they are bulky objects with competitive price ranges which can be simply intimidating to look for online.
Well, this is about to change.
We bring you a hand-picked selection of dining tables which aren’t only a sight for sore eyes, but are also statement makers in their own right. Each of them can be quite the investment piece, so be prepared for that. However, all handcrafted, impeccably designed furniture items are somewhat costly. What we’re saying is this: if you’ve been looking for the ideal dining table for what seems like an eternity, today you’ll meet your match.
1. Red Oak Dining Table by Poppyworkspl
Hailing straight from Poland, this wooden dining table features some handy (and eye-catching!) detailing that’ll make it instantly stand out in your space. Composed of two one-of-a-kind live edge oak slabs and a red steel base, the table makes a neat first impression. Two troughs are conveniently positioned in line with the main structure and their role is to serve as side compartments that can hold everything you need for a top dining experience. Fill them with potted plants for an extra touch of greenery or use them to store cutlery, spices or napkins – anything goes as long as you’re happy. Bon appétit!

2. The Yoshi Dining Table by moderncre8ve
For a futuristic-meets-minimalistic approach to handmade dining room tables, look at this! The Yoshi table successfully blends style and functionality with its 1″ solid walnut tabletop that rests on two wireframe metallic structures.

4. River Dining Table by RainforestArtFactory
How would you like to have not just a new dining room table, but also a standout art piece? Mimicking the smooth flow of a river across a natural landscape, this table was made to impress. With an African rosewood and hardened resin top resting on remarkably thin steel legs, this is just the kind of piece that’ll make whoever comes to visit simply stop and stare. Then stop and stare some more.
The only advice when it comes to it? You don’t really have to use a traditional table cloth, lest its cool composition gets hidden away. Instead, you can rely on placemats, coasters or pot holders to do the trick – they’ll help you nail the balance between function and art.
