About Dining Rooms

Used Dining Room Furniture with Character & Class

More than ever before, families have adapted their way of dining to fit their ever-changing lifestyles. But eating at the coffee table in front of the TV isn’t ideal for everyone all the time. That’s why at High End Used Furniture, we like to say that assembling a dining room is about more than tables and chairs. It’s about bringing people together. Whether you’re looking to furnish a formal dining room, a kitchen dining nook, or both; high quality used furniture may be the way to go.

If you’re beginning to shop for your dining space, there are a few key things to understand. Ask yourself the following questions. Do I eat at the dinner table every night? Once a week? Once a month? Do I have company over often during mealtimes? How many people are typically in attendance? Do I have china or glasses I would like to display?

Once you have thought through the basic needs of your dining room furniture, you should next narrow down the search for the furniture itself. When shopping for used dining room furniture online, it’s important to find a shop that puts character and curation first. High End Used Furniture prides itself on its offering of dining tables and dining chairs in a variety of styles and price points, all with one thing in common—quality. In addition, we also curate additional high end dining storage pieces such as china cabinets and sideboards and servers to help you further personalize your space and show off your unique china, glassware, and other more decorative elements.

Furniture for Your Dining Room

If you’re looking for used dining room furniture, you don’t have to limit yourself to a table and chairs. Expand your options and personalize your space with pieces that reflect your individual style and aesthetic. There are many creative ways to incorporate furniture to make your dining room both beautiful and functional.

China Cabinets

Although many people associate china cabinets with valuable dinnerware, there are many other ways to use a china cabinet in your dining room. Do you have a cherished collection or decorative items you’d like to display? China cabinets are the perfect way to show off your treasures. 

China cabinets aren’t just for looks—consider using a china cabinet for extra dining room storage. Many of the china cabinets in our collection have drawers and cabinets to hold everything you need. Whether you’re looking for a place to store your extra silverware, tablecloths, or bowls, china cabinets have a place for all of your dining room necessities. 

They also add valuable counter space to your room. Consider using a china cabinet as an additional serving area for special occasions. You can even turn it into a bar, an hors d’oeuvres station, or a spot to display desserts. The possibilities are endless for your used dining room furniture.

Buffets, sideboards, and servers

If you’re looking for an additional serving area, increased storage, or a standout feature for your dining room, sideboards are the perfect addition to your space. Sideboards are traditionally used to hold plates, trays, drinks, and other serving wear, but don’t let this limit you. Servers are great to use as a bar station, a display area for collectibles, or even repurposed as a bookshelf! Thinking outside the box for your used dining room furniture can help add a unique touch to your space. 

Consider the Size of the Room

The key to selecting the perfect used dining furniture for your space is understanding the size of that space. But not only should you seek out dining pieces that physically fit; you should also consider the visual space of the room. If, for example, you have a 10×10 dining room, a 6×8 foot table would be much too large. However, even a 7×7 foot table could appear too bulky even though it gives ample space to move about the room. Deciding on the dimension of your dining room table should be the first step you take in shopping for used furniture online.

Matching Dining Chairs to a Dining Table

You may think you need to wait until you find a dining room set in order to maintain a cohesive style for your space; and this may be true if you lean towards a traditional style of furniture. However, if your style leans a bit more modern, you can try to find complementary materials and styles that work even if you purchase chairs separate from your table. This also makes it easier to find high quality used dining room furniture; you’re more likely to find a table you love and chairs you can’t pass up, rather than an entire matching set. The key is to understand complementary materials, colors, and tone to ensure your dining room feels well designed.

Matching Dining Room Table & Chairs with Other Furniture

Do you already have an armoire or china cabinet in your dining room? What color, material, and style is it? If your existing furniture is made of wood, what is its tone? For most rooms, it is ideal to match warm-toned woods with other warm tones; and cool-toned woods with other cool tones. (Even the tone of your floors factor in here, if you have hardwood floors in your dining space.) This way, even if they are not the same species of wood, they will still feel cohesive with one another.

Liquor cabinets

High-quality liquor cabinets are hard to find, but they can add significant charm and character to your space. The selection of liquor cabinets at High End Used Furniture is always changing, so be sure to check back regularly to see our latest additions. 

Liquor cabinets are the perfect storage solution for a small dining room or hallway. From displaying your bar essentials to keeping your liquor concealed, liquor cabinets are a versatile storage piece for your dining room. 


Although a chest may not be the first thing that comes to mind when looking for used dining room furniture, chests can add a functional and unique twist to your dining room. High End Used Furniture has a selection of chests in different styles, finishes, and sizes to match your aesthetic and space requirements. 

Chests are a great way to conceal your less-than-aesthetic dining room items and prevent the buildup of clutter. If you’re ready to get your dining room presentable and polished, a chest is the perfect way to elevate and organize your space. 


Mirrors can reflect light in your dining room to make it feel bigger and brighter. Strategically hanging wall mirrors can significantly impact the feel and energy of your space. Whether your mirror is functional or decorative, you don’t want to overlook mirrors in your search for used dining room furniture.
