Crucial also to this issue of space is, of course, size. Before you purchase anything at all be sure to know the specific dimensions of your space, and know the dimensions of each piece of furniture you are considering. Be sure you have enough space to comfortably house the furniture.
The dining room set is a treasure to behold, when all the coordinates have been expertly matched and placed. For those who are not familiar with the 'dining room set,' it consists of the dining room table and comfortable chairs, relaxing sofa, corner chairs if space allows and a hutch to house all the crockery and supplementary items like table mats and cutlery. We might also find end tables, lamps, ottomans and other small foot rests. The beauty of the set is that each component has been matched to enhance the ambiance and mood of the room.
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.
