The festive year-end season is the perfect opportunity for many social gatherings, including of course, family reunions. Reunions are always special; catching up with our intergenerational family members strengthens bonds, preserves traditions and creates that sense of connection and belonging.
When it comes to bringing the whole family together, there’s no better place to make it happen than the dining table. After all, for the Asian culture, nothing is more important than sharing a meal together.
More than just a flat surface upon which to dine, the dining table can be the heartbeat of a family. It’s a place to gather, to talk and to reconnect. Whether you realize it or not, chances are family customs and traditions have been revolving around the dining tables, and they are the stuff memories are made of.
Parents look back on the times spent around the dining table as they grew up and long to recreate those memories with their children. When extended family members share a meal together, they sit a little closer to each other around the table. The table works to bring families back into a comfortable distance to share a conversation and to share their lives with one another.
Delicious food aside, the only thing that matters is that the family is taking time to be with one another over a meal.
Thus, the dining table is an essential piece of furniture that plays the part of the main centerpiece when you hold family reunions, when you entertain guests and throw dinner parties.

Since the dining table falls in one of the most-used furniture categories, it should be a one-time investment that reflects the homeowner’s taste and personality. Only the best should be bought.
A dining table can make or break your dining room, which is why its selection – from aesthetic and functionality to quality and durability - must be taken seriously into consideration.
This is why we know that a marble dining table would never go wrong.
A marble dining table is a natural beauty. It can light up a room with its elegant and sophisticated appearance, immediately enhancing the space's look and feel and creating a luxurious atmosphere. Marble dining tables never go out of style with their classic yet contemporary appeal.
A big benefit of having marble dining tables is that they are very durable. They are the highest and most sought-after beauty option for a kitchen countertop. If taken care of properly, a marble dining table can last for a very long time and even outlasts other furniture.
Designs are not limited to rectangular or round dining tables. Think tables that have been carved entirely out of marble and look ethereal with their lustrous earthy form; or a marble table in combination with other materials such as glass, wrought iron, wood, steel, brass and even silver.
From the traditional to contemporary and avant-garde, surely there is a complimenting marble dining table to suit your dining room and house decoration.
