One of the most popular styles is the round pedestal table. These are made for smaller rooms and designed to seat six or less people. Most come with a leaf that will expand the table by about eighteen inches to seat at least two more. The pedestal on these tables expands as well with a plain wheeled leg to hold the center of the table up. These give a more antique look to your dining room and usually have a carved apron around the outer edge of the surface.
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.
Chairs are the pieces of furniture that get most of the abuse. They are scooted across carpet and rugs to loosen the legs, items that are in pockets scratch them and many times the backs become loose as well. Some people even end up mismatching their dining sets by buying mismatched chairs. If this happens to you, consider using slipcovers to cover them up during a dinner party. Slipcovers hide the little imperfections your chairs may display while making a beautiful setting for your dining room.
