One point to keep in mind when choosing a table is how it will influence the social factor of your dining room. A round table is perfect for when you want to encourage conversation around the dining table. Also, it doesn’t allow anybody to sit at the head of the table, which is perfect for when you want to avoid any type of hierarchy.The same is true for square tables; however, square tables take up more space than round ones. And for the same number of diners, it’s better to opt for a rectangular one, as it offers more seating areas.
A simple wooden table, surrounded by dining chairs in lively colors add a lot of texture and style to the dining area, making the room look contemporary and informal.Dark table and light kitchen form a division, and create a nice contrast in the open dining space highlighted by the hanging subtle lamps.
Finally, we had to lavish some well deserved praise on farmhouse dining chairs, as they naturally exude a certain homely charm that is impossible to resist. Usually made from simple pine and with an unfussy design, a coat of shabby chic pastel paint and a coat of furniture wax can really make them come alive. Tie-on cushion pads complete the look and add an extra level of comfort as well.
While upholstered seats might sound a little traditional or old fashioned, they are actually just exceptionally classic, elegant and beautiful. To modernise traditional dining chairs, grey fabric is a very on-trend choice that will never date or look anything other than sumptuous and stylish. For a really luxurious choice, deep velvets and stunning brocades should be at the top of the potential fabrics list.
