You know as you’re slowly getting into your own space, you go through that all too familiar progression of furniture. Just out of college it’s a combination of family furniture and inexpensive finds. Then you slowly start to replace those pieces as you move into new places, develop your style, and care far more about the space you call home. While my husband and I bought most of our furniture at this point (with some inexpensive pieces still mixed in), our kitchen table was the only family furniture hold out.
Really it’s a great table – sturdy, expandable with the leaf, and perfect for an intimate crowd. You know what drove me crazy about it though (sorry, mom) was the color. It was an oak color, but in all in my photos it just looked yellow. One of those great things in real life, not so great things in pictures though. Recently, Article reached out about reviewing their kitchen table and chairs and I couldn’t say yes fast enough.
Article Oscuro Table Review
My husband and I went back and forth about which table and chairs set up we wanted. As similar as he and I are, our home decor styles don’t often align. We know that if we both love a piece, then it’s perfect, otherwise, it’s pretty much a no-go! Scouring Article’s website, we actually both fell in love with a lot of the same pieces, so that’s a good sign, right?!
Because our dining area isn’t that big, we opted for the 70″ Oscuro table and just four Chanel chairs. Article delivered the products themselves and I opted to have them set it all up for me! (They have two other delivery services for $49 and $99 if you don’t think you’ll need help assembling your furniture – but we were so glad to have it all set up for us). I’m happy to say it all fits perfectly and we’re so excited to sit at our new table!!
Chicken Chile Verde in the Pressure Cooker
As with any new thing, you want to share it with friends and family. So, I invited a couple over for dinner and decided to also test out my newly discovered pressure cooker skills. I’m always big on easy entertaining, including dinners for four, and this couldn’t have been any easier. I made rice in the rice cooker, followed this easy recipe for chicken chili verde in the pressure cooker, and then added in the accoutrements for tasty tacos. Everyone loved our new table setup and the food, so I think we may end up hosting dinner again soon!
Thank you to Article for gifting us the table and chairs for review. As always, all opinions are my own.
