If you want something bigger, you can go less formal with oak pine and ladderback chairs. In contrast, a sleek black table with matching chairs, art deco buffet and open cabinet give a modern look to any room. An alternative is white or antiqued gold.
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.
The addition of various sofas, ottomans and easy chairs as part of the dining room set, lends a softness to the dining room area, as well as making it feel like a living and dining area. These pieces of furniture can provide the color, texture and light to maintain a balance in the overall picture. Dark or light fabric will be determined by the wall covering or paintings.
