For many of us, the dining room is a place to socialise and catch up with our families at the end of the day or entertain friends at the weekend. As such, getting the appropriate furniture is important in creating the right environment. These are some of the pieces that you’ll want to consider for your living room and what do you need to know about each one:
Your dining table sees plenty of action, whether it’s dinner with friends, family meetings, or a simple cup of tea and the paper on a Sunday morning... It’s central to a busy home and a big investment too. We have dining tables seating from 4 to 12 people.
You can choose from dining tables in real hardwood throughout or with a glass top. We have 4 seater, 6 seater, 8 seater and 10 seater dining tables. If you’re looking for a versatile solution, extendable dining tables are always a great option for those that don’t require a large table on a daily basis.
For those looking for the convenience of buying a complete dining set together, that’s also a viable option. We have a large range of dining sets on offer, or you can build the dining set of your dreams with our bespoke Dining Set Builder tool.
Whether it’s for a modern kitchen, a breakfast bar area, or a dining room, a stylish and comfortable seat will enhance your room and make everyday family meals and dinner parties a real treat. You can choose from over 200 different combinations in our ever-popular leather, fabric or solid oak finished.
Another clever choice is to buy dining chairs that can double as a hallway seat or a bedroom chair, in order to get the most out of your investment. Fortunately, all of the chairs at Oak Furnitureland are designed to impress, regardless of the room in which you place them.
Sideboards can be used everywhere around your house, from the living room to the bedroom, including hallways, home offices and everything in-between. They are, however, quite the essential addition to any dining room.
When buying a sideboard you should always consider the size of the room (a large sideboard can easily overwhelm a small room whereas a smaller one can look lost or out of place in a space that is too big). If you’re planning to store plates and cutlery, you’ll also probably require a sideboard with more cupboards.
Dressers are one of the most well-loved and widely available units for storing cutlery, table linen and crockery. Available in small or large sizes, you can also choose from whether you prefer an open, glazed or part-glazed unit. Whatever dresser you may choose, it's quite important to invest in something that is as gorgeous as it is spacious.
Solid oak lends itself well to any interior and will complement a variety of different decors. Our dining room pieces are available in several finishes, from naturally hand-waxed to painted. Hardwood crafted dressers are the way to go if storage space, durability and style are important to you.
Display cabinets, like the name suggests, are a great way to protect your prized possessions whilst still keeping them in view. Our cabinets all are roughly the same size and offer similar storage options to showcase your possessions. As such, it’s mostly a matter of finding the one that complements the rest of your hardwood furniture. As usual, you can’t go wrong with buying furniture from the same range.
It's easy to overlook lamp tables when furnishing your dining room. However, they are incredibly useful and will easily slot into your room setting. You can choose from lamp tables with slab sides, in box designs and, of course, plenty of traditional four legged varieties, some with shelves and even drawers built in.
A nice finishing touch to your living room furniture is to include a mirror. This will give the effect of extra space and light, brightening up a dark corner.

A stylish clock can be used to liven up a bare wall, add interest to a chimney breast, or to simply keep track of your busy life. Choose from traditional or avant-garde, understated or maximalist. Whatever your preference may be, we have something for you.
