I love Autumn, everything from the beautiful red-orange scenery to holiday preparations. I’m always excited for the long-awaited opportunity to visit with family and friends for the holidays. This year, to my surprise, we are having Thanksgiving at my brother’s apartment in Nashville, the first time, or at least as far as I can remember, that my mother didn’t host dinner at our large family home in Houston. It got me to thinking about how so many of us are under the mistaken assumption that we can’t host holiday dinners or large parties in our trendy loft style apartments or condos, although an MSNBC article I recently read confirmed that small spaces have become a popular phenomenon in the housing market, especially among Generation Y renters and buyers. So, why do we think it’s impossible to entertain in a small space?
While shopping in New York last month, I stopped in a modern furniture and décor showroom, Design Within Reach, and found the cutest set of small, contemporary dining chairs. I’m a big fan of unique style and I was immediately drawn to the sexy elliptical cutout backs, making them both high on style and easy on space – with stacking functionality that makes them appealing for our new generation of small space dwellers. The Globus Chair, designed by Jesus Gasca, is regularly priced at $298. These chairs would look fantastic with a petite round eating table and can even serve as a great desk or side chair in a small space.
So don’t be afraid to spice up your holiday plans with a dinner party of your own. Whether for dining, working, or simply entertaining, the Globus chair goes a long way in style and space-saving functionality. Who say’s you can’t host Thanksgiving at your place this year? Happy Holiday!
