By definition, a table is a piece of furniture that has a flat surface (usually round or square) with attached legs that hold it upright. A table is used to hold a variety of objects ranging from food to boxes, merchandise, or an endless variety of things for various purposes. We are all familiar with the modern table and how they are used, but the question is can you define a table based on the types of chairs that is uses, if it even uses chairs at all. Many early table designs incorporated drawers. This was common as the table could be used for additional storage area and would not typically utilize chairs. Today, a table that uses drawers is commonly referred to as a desk, which may have one or more drawers in its base.
If you like the traditional style but you want a little bit more comfort for your guests you might want to opt for a padded bench. You can still keep it traditional with the rest of the bench being made out of wood, without a back of course, but you do not need your guests to be uncomfortable just to keep a specific style. Usually you can find the padded bench seats in multiple colors so you can match the décor and style already found in your dining area.
For fabric, we highly recommend that you go with an upholstery weight fabric instead of a lighter material that will have a tendency to stretch over time, wrinkle and even rip. Upholstery fabrics can be purchased in most fabric stores and come in all the popular colors, weaves and patterns so you can easily match the other décor and fabrics in your home.
