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.
Space is a big thing and if you don't have it you need to try to figure out how you can get it. Remove a wall to expand your space is always an option you may want to consider. Try to find a dining room set that fits your space properly. If you have something that is too big or too small it you'll run into problems. Having the extra space at a big table is nice, but if people feel crowded they won't be comfortable.
Another feature that really stands out in a dining room set, is the hutch, especially if it is one of elegance and tradition. Such hutches can house all manner of glassware, glasses for spirits, wines, aperitifs and champagne. With appropriate glass-fronted doors, such a display sets off the impression of the entire piece of furniture. It can be made of dark or light hardwoods, of teak or oak, and finished with the correct waxing and polishing, will stand out in any room.
