Although the traditional table for meals is long and rectangular, more and more families are moving away from this trend. In some cases, it is due to the restraints that a smaller living area places on the size of the furniture. More often than not, however, families simply prefer sitting closer to each other. This has led to the rise in popularity of small round or square dining room sets. These accommodations usually seat four to six people at most, and they allow for easy interaction and conversation.
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.
It's not just design where we see differences, however. There has also been a fundamental change in the finishes and textures and how the wood is treated and used in modern dining furniture compared to its ancestors. Older pieces tend to accentuate the wood grain with finishes in the medium to dark range, like cherry and mahogany. Today's dining furniture styles tend to go more to extremes as far as finishes go. For the most part, modern dining sets are either really dark, from espresso to black, or really pale, with shades of white to lighter natural finishes.
