If you want something bigger, you can go less formal with oak pine and ladderback chairs. In contrast, a sleek black table with matching chairs, art deco buffet and open cabinet give a modern look to any room. An alternative is white or antiqued gold.
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.
Aesthetics - With the right furniture and right lighting, you will have no trouble creating the aesthetic you want that matches your home's needs. Don't be afraid to mix and match your set; your entire dining area does not need to come from the same box. You want to give your home personal character, and that applies to all areas of the house. As long as you're not mixing your dining chairs, you can enjoy multiple pieces from multiple sets.
