This is where you place your drinks while in the living room entertaining a guest. When you're spending your weekend watching tv, a cocktail table is probably where your drinks and quick meals go. It's also smaller than the usual dining table and it comes with rollers so you get to bring it wherever you want. And yes, most people think this is the best type of table there is.

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.

Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.

While wood may be the most common material for tables and chairs, there are other options for the non-traditionalist. A metal table can lend a modern and minimalist style to any setting, especially when coupled with a more casual seating arrangement, such as benches and stools.

Along with the sleek style, glass and plastic also make cleaning up a breeze.

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.

The average traditional dining table is bulky, usually in the base or legs, which leads to some very heavy pieces of furniture. Another standard characteristic is some sort of ornate or embellished design feature. These can show up in the form of carved legs or bases, scrolled or up-turned legs, and tabletops with etched designs. By contrast, contemporary dining room tables can seem plain and boring, with clean lines and simple understated designs. Where traditional dining sets employ as much decoration as possible, the modern dining set goes in the complete opposite direction, eschewing ornamentation for simplicity. The modern dining room set is sleek and sophisticated with sharp angles and geometric patterns.
