I blame this all on Le Pain Quotidien. Those gorgeous great big Belgian tables are haunting me. I have dreamed of having one of those very tables for years.

I guess others have a similar dream because there are versions available in lots of places now. I love that there is nothing precious about them. It’s a comfortable table where life can happen and you don’t worry about it.
So now that I don’t live in a NYC apartment, I want a table to seat at least 10 people. This is a crazy dream after living in a studio apartment for so many years. I want people to gather together in my house! Sit, eat, drink, talk, play! I even have a board on Pinterest dedicated to farm tables. These are just a few beautiful tables in wonderful settings.
Here are few tables that are in the spirit of those at Le Pain Quotidien from some of the big retailers.
