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.
There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
The earliest memories of childhood often revolve around family and food. Most of us remember the aromas of our favorite foods wafting through the house as mom wove magic into meals. We do remember the cupboard in the corner, where she stored her special china and the book rack that was a treasure trove of her recipe books. Dad's special dining chair is a key memory mealtimes, long past. The empty spot at the dining table reminded us of a sibling who had moved to college.
