Lighting above your table is something you can't do without. The proper type of light is also a bonus to the comfort level of the room.. Try placing your table in different directions to get a new look and feel in your room. Rearrange the furniture and see what kind of neat layout you can create. Try to keep it fun and you'll have a dining room to enjoy.
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.
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.
