The dining room is always a space for eating, but sometimes that might mean breaking bread with friends at a home-cooked dinner party, and other days it might just mean slurping down a bowl of cereal on your way to work. Here, we’ve rounded up the best dining-room décor on Amazon for your various eating and entertainment needs — all of which is guaranteed to be cheap-but-expensive-looking. We’ve tackled everything from bowls for serving and dishes for day-to-day use, to various centerpieces, and even the dining-room table.

In the world of salad bowls, there is little that is classier than a tried-and-true wooden bowl (like the one your parents got as a wedding gift in the ’70s).
