Compact Dining

If you have a small space but you're big on entertaining then compact dining could be just what you need. Instead of a finger buffet, you're guests may prefer a more formal setting and be gathered around a table. Better still you can dress your table and make it a little more festive. Better still if you're making something like a bake, it can be placed on the table and leave your guests to serve themselves and leave you to enjoy the company of your guests.

Eating around the table is a more intimate way of catching up on friends and family who you've not seen in a long time and is a lot more enjoyable than a paper plate of store bought nibbles. Take a look at our three of the best compact dining furniture. Best of all we can assemble the furniture for you leaving you to enjoy the best of the festive period.



NORDEN by IKEA is a versatile table. It can fold on both sides seating 2-4 people. There are some drawers in the middle to store placemats, vases, candle stick holder or tea lights. Both sides can be folded down which make the table very compact. The table can be moved and stored beside a sofa and used as a side table.
