The Deal: Dining tables, chairs, place mats and more

November 6, 2010 |  6:00 am


It's that time of year when dinner hosts start obsessing over things like gravy boats and seating and stemware for 12. Give thanks that a new round of sales can help get that dining room in shape.

Let's start with the main event: the dining room table. Why throw your grandmother's damask tablecloth over a card table when Crate & Barrel is offering 15% off its Basque dining furniture (pictured above) through Nov. 15. The affordable table comes in four sizes, from 40 inches square to 104 inches long, ranging from $449 to $899 on sale. Two hues too: honey and java. (The 82-inch dining table shown above in honey, normally $799, is now $699.) Matching side chairs, regularly $199 each, are $179; counter stools, regularly $259, are now $229 apiece. Benches are $260 to $349 after the discount. Table runners, tablecloths and napkins are 25% off through Nov. 29. Look for select stemware and bar ware to be discounted 25% starting Wednesday.

At Williams-Sonoma Home's dining room event online and in its Beverly Hills store, look for a 20% discount on dining tables, chairs, sideboards, chandeliers and rugs through Nov. 16.

Chilewich At AllModern.com, Modloft dining sets are discounted by 20% through Friday. The modern Delancy dining table and six chairs, regularly $2,200, is now $1,760.

Sur la Table's entertaining sale, running through the end of the month, features 20% off Revol French porcelain, 20% off flatware, 20% to 40% off the store's own Whitewear dinnerware collection, and 20% off metallic chargers, roasting tools and Chilewich place mats, including woven circles like the one at right.
