Functionality - How many people regularly dine at your home? Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.
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.
Having your light source off to the side of the room a little helps in creating different layout options that you would not normally have from a room that has a centered light. You also need to keep in mind that you need to keep adequate room behind the table and chairs so your guests or family members that sit back there will not feel crowded. Placing your china cabinets against a wall away from the table may be a better option if you have adequate space. If your guests feel jammed into a corner they will not have a positive experience and may not want to come back as easily next time.
