This new IKEA Stornas extendable lead dining table as well as this IKEA Stornas buffet or sideboard would certainly be a nice addition to a dining room or kitchen. You can find the Stornas dining table in two different sizes: one where it's square and small, and the one below that you can expand and fit many dining guests. These IKEA dining furniture are part of their new collection and they have all the qualifications you would expect from IKEA pieces: they are sleek looking and feature a nice design and they are affordable. The Stornas dining table is listed at $400 (the smaller one goes for only $200) and the buffet is priced at $450.
These are pretty good prices, especially since these pieces are made in solid pine which not only looks great but also ages very well. It's nice to see affordable furniture made in solid wood where there isn't pressboard or plywood in sight. The buffet comes with five drawers and two cabinets so you should be able to fit quite a few things in there. This type of dining furniture piece is ideal to store nice china in or you could also place it in the living room or the hallway for other objects. The dining tables are very nice and basic and would go well with a variety of chairs: so if you currently have a nice set of chairs, however they feature a different style, then you probably still would be able to match them well and get an interesting combination in terms of design.
Either way, IKEA is certainly a good store to check out if you're looking for nice looking dining room pieces on a budget. They have a very nice selection, plus they carry pieces for all rooms of the house: the living room, dining room, bedroom, hallway and kitchen just to mention a few spaces...
