Update your dining room in time for Christmas with Ideal Home and Very

Our stunning table, chairs, crockery, cutlery AND glasses come to less than £355 in total!

With two months to go, you might already be salivating at the thought of a Christmas dinner and all the trimmings. But if you’re doing the honours this year, there could be a few things that need your attention before you can start the festive food shopping list. For example, have you got enough crockery to serve it on? Is your glassware worthy of bubbles? Do you even have somewhere to sit down to eat?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, don’t worry, there’s no need to panic. Our Ideal Home collection at Very has some great pieces to save your Christmas. And they should leave you with enough in the kitty to spend on food, fizz and gifts for your guests.

You don’t need oodles of space to create a smart dining area. This compact, country-style table and chairs will fit in almost anywhere. It seats four, and we think it’s perfect for a kitchen diner or an open-plan living room. You could even use it as a separate place to serve a festive breakfast, or use it as an extra work surface when the pots, pans and trays are mounting up on your kitchen countertops.


Made from rubber wood, we love how the X of the table frame is echoed in the backs of the chairs.
