So here's the deal, our new house has a very traditional layout: formal dining, formal living, family room, kitchen/hearth room. We are inheriting a very large pine table for the kitchen that seats 10+ (from the amazingly kind and generous current owners). Somewhere down the line, my thought is to change the formal dining room into a dining library. We both love libraries way more than eating. Just kidding. I love eating. But I also love a beautiful library and I think that with well-placed furniture the dining library can serve multiple functions.

There are tons of examples, but the ones above are my favorites and most closely resemble what is in my head. I love each and every one of those rooms.
