Well, the Houston Astros just won the World Series, the NBA is off and running, and the NFL is in Week 9. Fall sports are in full swing, and likely keeping your television viewing schedule pretty jam packed. This season, try not to watch EVERY game on the couch. Up your own game by swapping out tv tables and bowls of popcorn for one of Hillsdale Furniture’s signature three-piece dining sets and try having a real game day date night. Here are a few of our favorites, plus the recipes we’d like to serve with them:
The Spencer Sofa Table with Bar Stools
Traditional in style and yet modern in function, the Spencer Sofa Table is the best of both worlds. Designed to fit alongside a wall or sofa, the Spencer Table is an ideal space for dining while watching the Sunday night game. It has a dark espresso finish, wood construction, stands to counter height, and we like it best with our cross back Spencer Stools. It also boasts three side shelving spaces to keep everything from glassware to the remote controls.
The Emmons Bistro Set
Not everyone watches games from their living room or den though, and if you prefer kitchens, bar or other dining areas, we’d also recommend Hillsdale’s Emmons Bistro Set. Featuring a unique washed gray finish and stud detailing, the wood, rectangular Emmons Bistro Table is accented by its elongated, curving legs. It is constructed of metal and can be paired with the matching Emmons swivel stools, each mirroring the table’s design while also showing off a fresh twist on the classic X back style.
This dining set up feels perfect for sharing a big plate of wings and some frosty glasses of our favorite lager. We like this recipe for the wings, and are already imagining pairing them with these brownies.
The Emerson Three Piece Set
If you prefer modern style on a modern design, we definitely recommend our Emerson Sofa Table and its matching backless stools. Ideal for small spaces, the Emerson set can go against a wall, sofa or between chairs to easily turn a living area into an instant dining (or work) space. Gray metallic U-shaped legs bring out the stunning colors in the natural sheesham table top and its manufactured live edge, giving it a rustic feel. The backless non-swivel stools feature the same finishes and live edge. When the stools aren’t being used, they can easily tuck under the table, freeing up the space.
Even if you aren’t a Cowboys fan, we think Bobby Flay’s Dallas Burger will taste even better when served at the Emerson Table. We’d enjoy with beer or a bourbon cocktail, and a batch of Martha’s chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven. Yes PLEASE.
What’s on your viewing schedule this fall, and what do you prefer to eat when it’s just the two of you on game day?
