The average traditional dining table is bulky, usually in the base or legs, which leads to some very heavy pieces of furniture. Another standard characteristic is some sort of ornate or embellished design feature. These can show up in the form of carved legs or bases, scrolled or up-turned legs, and tabletops with etched designs. By contrast, contemporary dining room tables can seem plain and boring, with clean lines and simple understated designs. Where traditional dining sets employ as much decoration as possible, the modern dining set goes in the complete opposite direction, eschewing ornamentation for simplicity. The modern dining room set is sleek and sophisticated with sharp angles and geometric patterns.
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.
Besides room, table size and dimensions, the type of chairs that you select also have a bearing on the number of people you will be able to fit on a given dining set. While chairs with arms are rare for dining sets, they do exist. In some cases, the arm chairs are placed only at the two ends of oval or rectangular sets. It is recommended that if space is an issue, you avoid arm chairs as the arms will limit the number of chairs that can fit. You can also mix chairs, to include smaller chairs especially if you have smaller children.
