If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
The earliest memories of childhood often revolve around family and food. Most of us remember the aromas of our favorite foods wafting through the house as mom wove magic into meals. We do remember the cupboard in the corner, where she stored her special china and the book rack that was a treasure trove of her recipe books. Dad's special dining chair is a key memory mealtimes, long past. The empty spot at the dining table reminded us of a sibling who had moved to college.
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.
