2023 Dining Table Trends & Styling Tips

2023 Dining Table Trends & Styling Tips

Dining table furniture styles are just important as the styling and décor elements that go on top of them, and there are several exciting trends emerging in 2023.
Here are some of the top trends to watch for:



Simplicity and minimalism are key trends in dining table furniture styles for 2023. Expect to see clean lines, simple silhouettes, and sleek, uncluttered designs. Materials such as metal, glass, and polished wood are all popular choices for modern minimalist dining tables, and chairs with thin, streamlined frames are a great complement to this style. Essops Home has a selection of beautiful Modern Minimalistic dining options such as the Diablo Dining Table ,the Hana  or the Genovia


On the other end of the spectrum from modern minimalism, rustic charm is another key trend in dining table furniture styles for 2023. This trend emphasizes natural materials such as wood, stone, and iron, and incorporates distressed or weathered finishes to give pieces a sense of age and character. Look for dining tables with rough-hewn edges, chunky legs, and a warm, welcoming feel. Amongst our Favourites at Essops Home are the Oslo and the Chelsea .



Mixing materials is a trend that's set to continue in 2023 dining table furniture styles. This trend involves combining different materials such as wood and metal, or glass and stone, to create pieces that feel eclectic and unique. The key to pulling off this trend is to find pieces that balance each other out, with one material providing a warm, natural feel while the other adds a sleek, modern touch. Perfect examples of these are the Scarlett, Luson and Elite Dining Tables at Essops Home.



Curved shapes are set to make a big impact on dining table furniture styles in 2023. These shapes can add a sense of softness and fluidity to your dining space and help to create a more welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Look for dining tables with curved edges, chairs with rounded backs, and benches with gently arched seats. The stunning Eleanor, Castello, Mavi, Genovia, and Hakimi Velvet chairs are amongst the Essops Home dining chair collection that characterises the curved appeal strikingly!



Bold and vibrant colours are another trend that's set to take off this year with dining table furniture styles. Look for dining tables in unexpected hues such as bright yellow, rich purple, or deep teal, or chairs with bold patterns or colours. This trend is all about adding a sense of fun and playfulness to your dining area and creating a real sense of energy and excitement. The Essops Home Prisma dining chairs capture this trend perfectly with their bold colours and striking design .



Multi-functional pieces are a trend that's been gaining momentum in recent years and is set to continue into this year. Dining tables that can double as workspaces or game tables are becoming more popular, as are chairs that can be used in different rooms of the house. This trend is all about making the most of your space and ensuring that every piece of furniture serves a purpose.



Sustainability is becoming more than a trend and is also finding it’s way into furniture categories like dining. Look for pieces made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, cork, and reclaimed wood, or pieces that are designed to be long-lasting and durable. This trend is all about reducing waste and minimizing your environmental impact, while still creating a beautiful and functional dining space. The Essops Home Cass Motorcycle bar table is a perfect take on the sustainability trend, upcycled from an old motorcycle and topped with reclaimed wood – it creates both design interest and ticks the sustainability box in your dining area.



Now that you have your perfect dining table and furniture it’s time to make your dining table the centrepiece of your home, and in 2023, it's poised to become even more stylish and versatile than ever before. From statement-making dinner wear to eco-friendly materials and bold colour palettes, here are some of the top dining table styling trends to watch for in the coming year.




Bold and vibrant colour palettes are set to dominate dining table styling in 2023. Expect to see a lot of rich jewel tones such as emerald-green, sapphire blue, and deep burgundy. These colours can be used to create a dramatic and luxurious feel, adding depth and interest to your dining space.



Texture is an important element in 2023 dining table styling trends, with designers focusing on creating a tactile experience for diners. Expect to see a lot of textured tableware, such as stoneware plates and bowls, woven placemats, and linen napkins. These pieces add a sense of warmth and coziness to your dining table, making it feel more inviting and comfortable.



Sustainability is a key theme in 2023 dining table styling trends, with a focus on using eco-friendly and sustainable materials. Look for pieces made from materials such as bamboo, cork, and recycled glass, which not only look great but also help to reduce your carbon footprint.



Mix-and-match tableware is a fun and playful trend that's set to become more popular in 2023. This trend involves mixing different patterns, colours, and materials to create a unique and eclectic look on your dining table. You might pair a floral dinner plate with a geometric salad plate, for example, or use a different colour napkin for each place setting.



Bringing natural elements into your dining space is a key trend for 2023. This might involve incorporating natural materials such as wood, stone, and plants into your table styling, or using earthy colours such as terracotta and olive green. These elements help to create a sense of warmth and connection to the natural world, making your dining space feel more relaxed and welcoming.



Tableware is set to become more of a statement piece in 2023, with designers creating pieces that are as much about the aesthetic as they are about function. Expect to see bold, sculptural shapes, unusual textures, and unexpected colours in the dining tableware market. These pieces can be used to create a real sense of drama and excitement on your dining table.



Vintage-inspired pieces are a trend that's set to continue into 2023, with designers drawing inspiration from the past to create pieces that feel both nostalgic and modern. Look for vintage-inspired glasses, cutlery, and tableware, as well as retro-inspired table linens and decor items. These pieces can add a sense of history and personality to your dining space, making it feel more unique and special.


Finally, 2023 dining table styling trends are all about personalization and individuality. Expect to see a lot of personalized place settings, with guests' names or initials engraved on plates or napkin rings. This trend is all about creating a sense of intimacy and connection at the dining table and can be a great way to make your guests feel truly special.

In conclusion, 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for dining table styling, with a wide range of trends and styles to choose from.
