If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
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.
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.
