Get inspiration for your own holiday table from these lovely New York apartments

A creative Crown Heights couple traded in their former “stuffy” dining room table for this “inviting” one by modern furniture designer Milo Baughman. The playful rug, chandelier, and surrounding artwork add to the room’s overall coziness.

New York City apartments aren’t exactly known for their spacious square footage, and dining rooms are often more of a bonus than a common feature. But that doesn’t mean a decent space to host a dinner party—or a holiday feast—can’t be found. Curbed has had the pleasure of featuring a few lovely homes that were lucky enough to have the space to spare for an entertaining space that leans on the larger size and will surely come in handy this holiday season.

Perhaps some of these dining rooms, gathered from our House Calls column, will spark some decor inspiration for your own space, whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering or a party for 30. (Hey, it can be done.)

House Calls NYC East Elmhurst July 2016
This modern, open kitchen and dining area is located in a renovated, once-dated Queens townhouse. While the dining space isn’t huge, it’s nice that the kitchen island is, allowing for additional room to display a full holiday feast.

This isn’t exactly a traditional dining room—in fact, the converted Clinton Hill carriage house as a whole is pretty quirky—the atmosphere is fun and free-spirited, and far less formal than a more polished space.

Regina and Billy Mariano Jersey House Calls
This Jersey City loft sports a warm, inviting dining room concocted by interior designer Regina Mariano, who lives in the space along with her husband Billy.
When architects Max Worrell and Jejon Yeung opted for their Carroll Gardens co-op, they had their work cut out for them. After a gut renovation, the open kitchen and dining room has just enough space to host an intimate dinner—and its minimalist design certainly wouldn’t detract from the holiday meal.
