The days of formal dining rooms might be nearing an end, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to forsake the table too.

Shopping for a dining table that fits your lifestyle, space, and budget can be as tedious and all-consuming as the search for the perfect sofa. One minute you can’t decide if you’re the round or rectangular type, and the next you’re promising yourself you’ll host more dinner parties if you can just get your hands on that stunning 12-seater. Of course, the hardest question always seems to be: Where do I even begin?

With so many retailers, styles, and price points to sort through, we’re here to help you narrow down the hunt with an essential list of the stores we swear by—and what to know before you shop.

Here’s exactly where to shop for dining tables, according to the Domino team.

Anthropologie

Price range: $650–$2,300

Signature style: Reimagined antiques

What to know: Not unlike its apparel, Anthropologie’s furniture collection focuses on unique, ornamental details. While the brand’s smaller tables are slightly more affordable than most of its offerings (which range upward of $1,000), they’re worth the investment if you want the look and feel of a storied statement piece without dropping a fortune at a vintage store.

Muuto

Price range: $1,700–$2,800

Signature style: Danish luxe

What to know: You won’t find glitzy brass accents or live-edge silhouettes in Muuto’s dining selection. Instead, its pieces are all about structure and silky-smooth surfaces. The sheer cleanness of its tables will prove to be a refreshing conversation-starter.

CB2

Ikea

Price range: $70–$500

Signature style: Scandinavian simplicity

What to know: Ikea is the ultimate furniture source for first apartments for a reason. While none of its dining tables fall under the statement-worthy category, per se, its lineup stays true to the retailer’s Nordic-inspired aesthetic and affordable ethos. If you want to cover the basics but don’t want to come off cheap, start your search here.

Restoration Hardware

Price range: $2,000–$6,000

Signature style: Farmhouse grandeur

What to know: RH is known for its long and large wood dining tables with enough room for your entire extended family (and then some) to gather. You know the type you’d only find in a glamorous country estate in the hills of Virginia? While certainly beautiful, beware: Dining on reclaimed Russian oak and organic bamboo comes at a cost.
