Perhaps the most obvious difference between the formal dining furniture and kitchen furniture is that there are no benches in the formal room. Breakfast nook benches are quite common. In fact, the corner breakfast nook set is particularly popular with many homeowners. Benches offer many advantages of chair seating. First, you can seat more people in the same amount of square footage. Generally you can fit one and a half people on a bench for every chair that you replace. In addition, under the seat storage compartments give homeowners places to store things that they want to have conveniently located close to the kitchen without actually taking up valuable counter or cabinet space.
A more unique version of a retro set is a style that looks like a soda shop booth. With a rectangular table sitting in the midst of chairs shaped to fit inside a corner and another bench for the outside seats, this one will add a huge amount of attitude to any dining area. Besides the retro sets with their bright primary colors, today's small table and chair sets are made of a variety of materials, including stained, painted or natural wood, tables with round or square glass tops, and sets featuring wrought iron and upholstery.
The style is probably the most important factor when it comes to finding the perfect modern kitchen nook set. Some decorators will give generalizations like you cannot use bench seating in a modern kitchen and that is simply not true. Benches can have a place in a modern nook if they are done right. The only general rule that applies universally to all modern furniture is that the lines and design need to be simple. The table and chairs will have simple straight legs rather than ornately carved ones. The tops of breakfast nook chairs and benches will be straight lines rather than arched ones.
