Modern. While wood may be the most common material for tables and chairs, there are other options for the non-traditionalist. A metal table can lend a modern and minimalist style to any setting, especially when coupled with a more casual seating arrangement, such as benches and stools. If you prefer a modern look, but without the metal, a glass tabletop can be found to fit any sized area. To complete the look, clear plastic chairs are available in a number of styles. Along with the sleek style, glass and plastic also make cleaning up a breeze.
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.
Softly Modern. If you want to spice up your dining area with modern style furniture but want a softer look than some styles provide, there are several ways to satisfy your desire. You could choose an oval glass tabletop for a softer focal point. Modern chairs with a curved design would also help you achieve the design you are striving for. You could place a beautiful rug in a cinnamon, nutmeg, or paprika color under the glass table to add visual warmth to the room.
