We love turning to the big and silver screen for design inspiration so we've picked out 7 famous dining tables from pop culture that transcend the role of mere prop into something more iconic.

1) Downton Abbey - Elegant Dining

The Downton Abbey dining table is admittedly a smidge too large for the average dining room space but those Aristocats sure knew how to put on a spread. From a ‘simple’ breakfast served most mornings from the sideboard to the decedent multi-course evening banquets served in the formal dining room, they had a table and a setting for every occasion. You can bring a bit of Mahogany opulence to your dining room with our Canterbury Dining Range. Fancy a spot of afternoon tea, anyone?Downton Abbey (2010-2015)

2) Friends - Eclectic 90's Style

Monica Geller’s apartment in Friends is a set we are all oh-so familiar with, and one image that jumps to mind is the iconic kitchen. You can recreate the that farmhouse-chic look and live in your own piece of 90’s nostalgia with this Davenport Round TableJust tell your friends to grab a couple of chairs from their places for that eclectic, mismatched style.Freinds (1994 - 2004)

3) A Clockwork Orange - Modernist Glass Topped Table

Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1972) has very distinctive furniture to say the least. The late 1960’s modernist style is striking and the glass topped table with the exposed steel would make the perfect contemporary piece for any dining room today. This Kansas Round Table will give your home that Clockwork Orange vibe, without, y'know the utra-violence.A Clockwork Orange (1972)

4) Sex and the City 2 - Upholstered Chairs and Polished Mahogany

If there’s one thing the ladies from Sex & The City know - it is style. And Carrie Bradshaw’s Apartment just oozes style in the Sex & The City 2 (2010). The masculine, oval mahogany table is offset by the upholstered patterned chairs. This dining space creates an idyllic setting for a romantic anniversary meal between Carrie and Mr. Big. Now if only we could afford that NYC apartment.Sex and the City 2 (2010)

5) Beetlejuice - 80's Postmodernism

We love a good dinner party. The food, the drink the spontaneous renditions of "The Banana Boat Song”. Beetlejuice (1988) certainly has one of the most memorable dinner party scenes of all time and one of the most iconic contemporary dining tables. 80’s postmodernism at it’s finest might be a tad dated for our tastes today, but we can all take inspiration from the clean lines and marble top when choosing a dining table in 2018. Our Donatella Marble Range wouldn’t look out of place in a Delia Deetz makeover, fabulous!Beetlejuice (1988)

6) Bridget Jones's Diary - Quirky Dinner Party

Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) famous ‘blue soup’ dinner party scene proves that you do not need to be a Michelin Star chef to host a brilliant dinner party for your friends. All you need is a big dining table tucked under the eaves of your brilliant London flat, a lot of wine and some mood lighting and hey-presto you’ve just thrown yourself a rom-com worthy dinner bash.Bridget Jone's Diary (2001)

7) American Beauty - Dinner With The Family

American Beauty (1999) boasts one of the most infamous dinner table scenes of all time. The table acts as a barrier between the troubled married couple and their daughter. Years of repressed emotions come to the boil when Lester asks his wife to ‘pass the asparagus’. This is maybe one dinner table scene you wouldn’t want to recreate for your home.American beauty (1999)
