It’s that time of year again, when ketupat, rendang, and the rest of the family squeeze into your 3-bedroom home.

While Raya food and festivities keep people happy, they don’t necessarily keep them comfortable. We scoured furniture stores for functional and stylish furniture pieces that will proof to be very useful this season:

When you’re serving a party of 20, the coffee table just won’t do. Add side tables that double up as storage or seating.

This will sit a cousin as well as a planter.

Add-on Dining Chairs

Additional guests are a staple during large gatherings. Buy loose dining chairs to add to the table or the living area.

These ones are still trendy, and they come in this lovely blue.
