Cheap (But Expensive-Looking) Dining-Room Décor You Can Buy on Amazon

Last week, we dug up the best cheap (but expensive-looking) bedroom décor you can buy on Amazon. This week, we’ve tackled the dining room, everything from napkins, to silverware, to a salad bowl, to the damn table.

Rosso Glass Paneled Glass Water Pitcher

This jadeite water pitcher is very 1950s’ TV family, but in a chic way.

Fortessa Dragonfly Stainless Steel Flatware

We like how slender and elegant this stainless-steel flatware from Fortessa is.

DII Tablecloth

This tablecloth looks like something Nancy Meyers might have prop-styled for the It’s Complicated dining room.

Celina Mancurti Wide Linen Table Runner

If you’d rather not commit to a table cloth, there’s this linen runner, with a subtle line of red stitching, from Amazon Handmade.

Note: This table runner is sold out, but you can go bigger with a tablecloth or smaller with some linen napkins.

Crow Canyon Home Enamelware Serving Bowl

It’s no secret around these parts that we love us some enamelware. This bowl is great for holding, say, a salad or a side of Brussels sprouts.

Crow Canyon Home Enamelware Tumblers, Set of 4

And pick up some matching tumblers while you’re at it.

YTC Romaine Lettuce Plate

Serve your deviled eggs on this lettuceware tray. (Lettuceware, you ask? Yes, it’s a thing.)

Tansu Aranami Blue Wave Dinner Plate

This lovely “blue wave” plate makes a good serving dish as well.

Food & Wine For Gorham Modern Farmhouse 16 Piece Dinnerware Set

A 16-piece stoneware dinnerware set from the Food & Wine for Gorham collection.

Sakura Flower Dessert Plates, Set of 5

A set of five leaf-shaped dessert plates in a lovely shade of millennial pink.

Jonathan Adler Pop Candle

Set the mood with this Champagne-scented candle from Jonathan Adler. (Here’s another candle we love.)

C.R. Gibson Jessie Steele Juice Glasses, Set of 6

How delightful are these juice glasses decorated with a pair of ripe cherries? Added bonus: They come in a reusable tin.

Chef’s Star 15 Ounce Stemless Wine Glasses, Set of 6

If you’re in the market for slightly more traditional glasses, try these stemless, shatterproof cups.

Midwest Exporters Marble Coasters, Set of 4

A set of white Carrara-marble coasters that would make a great hostess gift, incidentally.

Umbra Savore Cream and Sugar Set

If you’re serving coffee, bring out this sleek, white ceramic and beechwood cream-and-sugar set (spoon included).

LA Linen 18 by 18-Inch Napkins, Set of 10

Here’s an idea: Get these gingham napkins in a bunch of different colors, and mix and match them at your next dinner party.

Dansk Wood Classics Tulip Salad Bowl

In the world of salad bowls, there is little that is classier than a tried-and-true Dansk tulip bowl (like the one your parents got as a wedding gift in the ’70s). Pair it with these incredibly stylish Dansk salad tongs.

Note: This is almost sold out, but here’s another Dansk wood salad bowl with a slightly different shape.

Yamazaki Home Tosca 2-Tier Cake Stand

Whether you’re serving bagels, muffins, or brownies, they’ll look great atop this two-tier cake stand from Yamazaki Home.

Menu Copper Wire Bowl

This Menu wire bowl is less appropriate for a dinner party, more appropriate for displaying bananas, say, or avocados.

Thomas Paul Scrimshaw Small Bowl, Set of 4

A set of maritime-themed cereal bowls from Thomas Paul.

Note: The set of bowls is sold out, but you can still get a lobster serving tray by Thomas Paul here.

Grace Wood Salt and Pepper Grinder, Set of 2

A salt-and-pepper grinder that is designy, but not too designy.

Sagaform Oval Oak Salt and Pepper Set

A salt-and-pepper shaker (not a grinder) created by Swedish furniture, interior, and product designer Anton Björsing.

GDF Studio Helen Mid Century Modern Dining Chair, Set of 2

Heck, you can even get a dining-room table and chairs on Amazon! These chairs come with a variety of cushion options, but we are partial to the mint green.

Need Computer Desk

Most of the relatively inexpensive dining-room tables on Amazon were crummy-looking. However, this writing desk we found is handsome, and could definitely work in the dining room. (And would look great with the chairs above.)
