Traditionally, dining room sets were composed of a large rectangular table surrounded by chairs. The two chairs at either head had arms, while the chairs along the sides were armless. The furniture is almost always made of wood, and prior to the 19th century, unique to each home. While custom pieces are still available today, they can be prohibitively expensive. Here is a look at some of the more common styles of tables and chairs that are available today.
Consider Shape. You have several shapes from which to choose. The two most common shapes are rectangular and circular. Some people prefer a circle shape, believing that this shape facilitates better conversation. It's easier to fit more people around the table with a rectangular shape. If you add leaves to a circular table, it will become an oval. An octagonal table is another option.
It is quite easy for your dining room to become an artistic masterpiece. The abundant selection of modern dining room furniture will allow your creativity to soar once you decide to spice up your dining decor. Modern furniture is designed to look sleek and sophisticated. If your dining area currently has any other style of furniture, the room may very well appear over crowded or possibly congested. Often, the only furniture pieces you need in a dining room is a table and chairs. If storage space is limited in your home, you might consider placing an additional piece of modern designed furniture such as a glass curio or lacquered buffet in the room.
