Dining room furniture typically includes the actual dining set (dining table and an appropriate number of chairs), a cupboard with or without a display section, and of course serving trolleys. The dining set is the star of this ensemble since most of the action happens here. Dining tables made of rosewood, teak, and pinewood lend a lot of character to the space. Glass tops enable protection of the underlying wooden surfaces. Table legs may be kept simple or ornate, to match the setting of the room. In smaller dining rooms, drawers may be fitted under the table for storage of cutlery, napkin rings and the like. There are tables with carousels for placing cutlery and sauces. Chairs are also made of the same material, with or without upholstery. Chairs may also be made of less expensive kinds of wood and stained or veneered to match the table. This enables to reduce cost and also keeps the chairs lightweight for easy movement. Dining chairs stained in a shade, contrasting that of the table is a new trend in the design of dining sets.
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.
Having your light source off to the side of the room a little helps in creating different layout options that you would not normally have from a room that has a centered light. You also need to keep in mind that you need to keep adequate room behind the table and chairs so your guests or family members that sit back there will not feel crowded. Placing your china cabinets against a wall away from the table may be a better option if you have adequate space. If your guests feel jammed into a corner they will not have a positive experience and may not want to come back as easily next time.
