Time For A New Cottage Dining Table

April 4th, 2017 Blog

The first hints of spring came early to Ontario this year, and if you’re at all like us, the promise of warm weather ahead has you dreaming about opening up the cottage. If spring continues like this, a lot of families will be planning Easter in cottage country, filled with hot cross buns and glazed hams. Others will want to wait until the back country roads are clear of snow and mud, or for the water to really warm up before heading back up to Muskoka, the Kawarthas, Haliburton, or the Rideau Lakes. And with the warm weather comes more long weekends and plans to invite guests up to your summer paradise.

Entertaining can certainly put your cottage in a new light; are the guest rooms as comfortable as you thought they were or are they drab and in need of redecorating? Do you suddenly spot all of the dents and scratches in your dining table when your loved ones are seated all around it, or do you quickly realize that you’ve cramped the seats a little too close together and that there really isn’t enough room to entertain so many people at once? Instead of trying to navigate the forest of wine glasses and fit more plates onto your table, it may be the season to upgrade your cottage dining table.

Fortunately, there’s still time to take advantage of the Woodcraft Winter Sales Event and save on new furniture, including 20% off dining tables, 25% off vintage cherry dining tables, as well as 20% off of dining room chairs. From Windsor Bent Arrow to slat back chairs, we have plenty of wood dining chairs that will fit any cottage environment perfectly, while we take pride in offering a wide range of tables from modern to rustic. For cottages, you may want to consider the natural look of wood and use materials like vintage cherry or wormy maple, with an emphasis on natural patterns. The Woodcraft 40th Anniversary Table is a great example of a Canadiana Harvest table, with its rough sawn, rough cut style.

Entertaining at the cottage doesn’t have to be stressful or embarrassing, especially not if you have all the room you need to host. Get ready for summer hosting in cottage country with some great barbecue recipes like these chili-espresso ribs and sides like roast cabbage with bacon that will truly impress your guests.
