From mealtime to playtime to work-from-home time, our dining spaces do it all. Schumacher enlisted a trio of talents from across the globe to dream up a capsule collection of tables and chairs that combine high craftsmanship and authentic design for a celebration of everyday living.
Studio Kaksikko, Helsinki, Finland
With their clean wood frames and playful ski-like legs, the Mokki dining table and chairs offer a nod to the iconic midcentury designs of the homeland of Studio Kaksikko founders, Salla Luhtasela and Wesley Walters, reimagined for modern family living. Patterned upholstery, in fabrics like Schumacher’s Huxley (center) and Exotic Butterfly, enlivens the simple shapes. Table, chairs and fabrics, fschumacher.com. Plates, Arabia.

Charlotte Høncke Design, Højbjerg, Denmark
Applying the Danish concept of hygge to multifunctional living, Charlotte Høncke’s cocoon-like Puffin chairs and dining table are as suited to long dinners with friends as they are to an afternoon of work (or homework). The upholstery’s soft pleats, shown in Schumacher’s Marco Performance Linen, are a hallmark of the designer’s attention to detail. Table, chairs and fabric, fschumacher.com.

Moving Mountains Design Studio, Brooklyn, New York
Whether she’s working with plush upholstery or hardwoods, Moving Mountains founder Syrette Lew fosters a sense of intimacy in every piece she creates. Case in point: The Rocco chairs offer dining chair functionality with the sink-right-in feeling of a lounger; up the comfort with Schumacher’s Ogden Boucle. The Stella dining table is sized just so for a cozy gathering. Table, chairs and fabric, fschumacher.com. Gerrits rug by Patterson Flynn, pattersonflynn.com.
