The addition of various sofas, ottomans and easy chairs as part of the dining room set, lends a softness to the dining room area, as well as making it feel like a living and dining area. These pieces of furniture can provide the color, texture and light to maintain a balance in the overall picture. Dark or light fabric will be determined by the wall covering or paintings.
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.
There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
