There are always exceptions, of course, but for the most part, this difference holds true. The use of engineered wood has increased over the last ten to twenty years and this has also had an effect on the look of dining room furniture. The veneers that are used so often now give the pieces a sleek, shiny finish, usually with no wood grain showing at all.
Tables, being the centerpiece of the room, can have a significant effect on the overall personality of the dining area, and this is affected greatly by its very shape and style. There are the oval tables, which lend a certain elegance to the room. There is also the oblong table, but with rounded corners, giving it a softer, gentler impression. A round or square table is fairly conventional, but functional, and with appropriate accoutrements, produces the desired effect in the room.
There are many styles and types from which to choose, to suit all tastes and generations. Modern furniture may include glass-topped tables, adding a certain amount of glamour to the environment. Glass can be clear, or opaque with engraved decorative patterns and symbols. Some have even taken advantage of the family coat of arms, having it displayed audaciously in the center of the dining table.
