    Holiday Dining, from Classic to Modern, Belfort Furniture Has Your Style

    by Claire B

    Are you ready for holiday entertaining? Do you need a fresh new look for your dining room? If you are like most of us, your dining room is not always used for dining.

With families running in so many directions each day, many of us never step foot in our formal dining rooms, except for holidays and special occasions. Breakfast nooks or large eat-in kitchens are becoming the central hub of the house for family meals and gathering. Zillow.com reports that home sizes are decreasing and as this happens, kitchens are becoming more multipurpose. Builders are incorporating a home office and room for eating in the kitchen.
