When it comes to kitchen and dining spaces, there are so many ways to design them, to style them, and these days, to use them!

In the spirit of getting the most out of our spaces, today we’re putting the Studio McGee spin on things and rounding up our favorite kitchen and dining design tips in one place.

If you’re finding yourself spending more time at your countertops, here’s everything you need to make the view more beautiful:

“The Reeves Collection is our take on a classic spindle design. We just launched the chair and the counter stool but the bench will be launching soon! It’s made of solid oak wood with a black stain, and I love the classic and timeless design.”

Team Favorite: In The McGee Home, we chose an alternative to a matching dining set with our upholstered Laurie Chairs at either end, for an added element of interest and asymmetry. 

Crafted with a streamlined, classic feel, the Laurie Dining Chair is the perfect end chair for both traditional and modern design styles. Narrow, tapered legs finished in a dark, warm stain, contrast the light cream hue of its cotton/poly fabric, bringing just the right amount of dimension without overwhelming your space.
