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.
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.
Space - Consider the space where you dine carefully. Does your home have a dining room, or do you dine in the kitchen? For some without a dining room, the comfort of a living room becomes our primary place for dining. If you have a dining room, you want a set that builds a strong presence; more ornate sets, accompanied by the right lighting, can create a customized aesthetic in your dining room. If you dine in your kitchen, you will probably want a solid hardwood table top, built to endure the multi-functional uses of the space. If you prefer allotting dining space in your living room, you need to make sure that the dining and living room furniture blends well.
