Dinner parties are one of my favorite ways to entertain.  I love the planning, the table-setting, and the cooking.  I like to plan ahead so that I can enjoy the evening and relax with friends over a long, leisurely meal.  If you are a city-dweller, it is a luxury to have a dedicated dining room.  But, it is usually possible to create a dining space as part of your living room or kitchen.  When I am thinking about dining spaces that do double duty, I prefer contemporary spaces with clean lines that do not create a lot of visual clutter.  I love the space above from Lonny in March 2015.  It is lovely as a stand-alone room, but it could also tuck nicely into a kitchen nook or the corner of a living room.  If it were in my home, I’d probably use it as an office as well because I love having a large work table.  I would also probably buy six chairs and keep two elsewhere in my home so that I could bring them out as needed.  Here is how we break it down.
