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.
If you want something smaller, you may go for a round glass table with modern, colorful fabric-colored chairs. There are pub tables with their bar chairs. Sometimes these tables come with attractive storage or a wine rack underneath. Matching buffets and cupboards complete the look.
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.
