There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
There are many styles and types from which to choose, to suit all tastes and generations. Modern furniture may include glass-topped tables, adding a certain amount of glamour to the environment. Glass can be clear, or opaque with engraved decorative patterns and symbols. Some have even taken advantage of the family coat of arms, having it displayed audaciously in the center of the dining table.
The dining room set is a treasure to behold, when all the coordinates have been expertly matched and placed. For those who are not familiar with the 'dining room set,' it consists of the dining room table and comfortable chairs, relaxing sofa, corner chairs if space allows and a hutch to house all the crockery and supplementary items like table mats and cutlery. We might also find end tables, lamps, ottomans and other small foot rests. The beauty of the set is that each component has been matched to enhance the ambiance and mood of the room.
