Elevating Private Dining

Many care homes and senior living environments offer residents the opportunity to enjoy a private dining room where they can celebrate special occasions with family or catch-up with friends over a meal prepared by the in-house chef.

Having a dining space to invite friends and family round helps residents to feel at home and provides a relaxed and more enjoyable experience for everyone. Whether your private dining room is formal or informal, here is a selection of Shackletons furniture suitable for private dining.

Dining Tables

A dining table needs to be large enough to accommodate friends and family for that special occasion. It should be the focal point of the dining room but with enough space for diners to sit comfortably and for staff to be able to move around the room easily, if required.

Shackletons has a wide range of dining tables which are made using a variety of materials and finishes from wood to metal to suit both contemporary and traditional interiors. Our Fairfax, Lowell and Mendon dining tables are ideal for private dining and can comfortably seat up to 10 people.

The Fairfax is a refectory style dining table with a cross leg design. Add a touch of luxury with the Lowell and Mendon dining tables with an interesting blend of metal legs and a wood top, which would make a stylish addition to your dining space.

The Woodbury dining table features a turned pedestal base and is suitable for more traditional interiors.

Dining Chairs & Benches

There are a wide variety of dining chairs and benches to choose from with different styles to suit modern or traditional interiors.

The Brayton and Fareham are two new dining chairs launched this summer. The Brayton dining chair features a generously curved back and metal studding to accentuate the frame of the chair. The Fareham arm and side dining chairs would add a touch of sophistication to any dining environment. The classic design features a curved arm with the added benefit of  a loose cushion seat which can be easily removed for cleaning. The Westbourne is a classic spoonback dining chair which will make a statement in traditional dining rooms.

For a more informal dining experience, the Fairfax dining table could be paired with the Chatham or Rye dining benches. Each bench comfortably seats two people and the deep buttoning detail on the Chatham adds a touch of elegance. Matching dining chairs are available in both ranges.

Our full range of dining tables and chairs can be found in the dining category on our website.
