It's a commonly accepted myth that dining table and chairs have to all match absolutely perfectly, but a little variation can work terrifically well. By selecting a few different shades for seat pads, a funky and modern look can be effortlessly created and against a neutral backdrop, such as a white wall, the visual impact will be utterly incredible. Different colour palettes could even be used, seasonally.
The rectangular tables are the most common, which shows that they are a practical, functional and comfortable option. They are perfect for elongated dining rooms and they allow for more diners in less space. In a small room, a rectangular table can be shoved against the wall and still be perfectly practical.
As mentioned, rectangular tables present a certain advantage in terms of capacity that round- and square ones do not. Imagine having to place all the diners to be seated at this elongated table at a round one – you’d have to have a pretty big round table!. For big dinner parties, it’s best to opt for an elongated/rectangular table, as you get more space for chairs and guests.
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.
