Does anyone else struggle to find modern furniture that doesn't break the bank?!

If you were to come to my house, you'd see a mix of nice pieces, hand-me-downs and no furniture. It's been a process! With renovating a house while also trying to furnish it, it can break the bank. I've slowly been adding furniture and decor over time as my budget permits. A dining table, in particular, was something that I searched for for months on end. I love super unique and high quality pieces but those usually come with a hefty price tag.

In an effort to not spend my savings on ONE piece of furniture, I did a lot of research and found a few options for high quality dining tables that fit a unique vision and aren't thousands of dollars.

The dining table I ended up choosing for my house was the "Blox Dining Table" from CB2. It's super simple but has that special flare to it that makes it not look like every other table for sale. Not to mention it's $500. AND it's solid wood and super heavy. FOR $500. They also have a longer version of this table that also comes in under $1,000. If you have any walnut wood in your house, this wood finish will compliment it perfectly.

Another top contender for me was the "Lola Dining Table" that is also from CB2. A cement look table that serves as a striking statement piece. It comes in white or black and is perfect for smaller spaces.

The third option is another small space table with warm tones. Sprawling at 48" in diameter in a driftwood finish from West Elm.

I feel like it can be hard to find nice quality craftsmanship, especially online. West Elm and CB2 are two brands I trust for quality; but if all else fails, Etsy is a great option to find hand crafted dining tables at a multitude of different price points. See this white washed oak table with white metal legs here. I love the lightness of this table and its simple form.

I hope this helps give you some guidance on your search for your dream dining table on budget.

Thanks for reading!
