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.
This tablecloth looks like something Nancy Meyers might have prop-styled for the It’s Complicated dining room.
The ultimate evergreen centerpiece in these succulent-obsessed times: a row of faux succulents planted in a minimalist ceramic planter.

This blue-wave-designed bowl is a lovely option if you’re in need of a serving bowl instead.
A 16-piece stoneware dinnerware set from the Food & Wine for Gorham collection.
Or a 12-piece matte teal stoneware dinnerware set if you’re looking to channel the look of some basic-but-cool ceramic dishes.
These beeswax candles have a delicate, sweet scent that’s a bit more subtle than a truly scented candle (and a bit less jarring to light while you eat).
A set of white Carrara-marble coasters that would make a great hostess gift, incidentally.
An unglazed porcelain octopus that can be a decorative centerpiece or, more practically, a weight for your dinner napkins.
Here’s an idea: Get these gingham napkins in a bunch of different colors, and mix and match them at your next dinner party. (Just note that the price changes depending on what color you get.)
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).
