Dining chairs: As societies developed so did their need for tables. Writing, art and craftsmanship that required one to sit up found a need for tables. As labour refined so did the wealth of society providing a new meaning to the table. Formal dining tables became popular and a range of dining chairs from simple to elegant began to be manufactured around the world. Though East and West cultures viewed dining differently, chairs in one form or another became the standard when eating. Formal dining began in the castles and manors of Europe where tables were extremely long and narrow providing uses during feasts and banquets. Dining chairs started as narrow ridge forms with high backs popular for such events. During modern times the dining chair has evolved into many forms and many new materials and being used to create them from plastic and metals to more traditional materials such as wood.

Formal – Separate Dining Room. When styling your separate dining space, you've got a blank canvass to work with. First consider how you'll use it; generally this room would be reserved for formal dining but if this isn't your style, you can easily make the room more relaxed so it serves multiple purposes. A formal iron dining table is the height of elegance; use plenty of candles for soft lighting, a crisp white table cloth and introduce hints of colour with a feature vase, wall art and table ware. You should also base choices around the existing features in the room. If you have a fireplace or beamed ceiling; work with this. Perhaps create a more dramatic space, an iron dining table with wrought iron wall sconces and candelabras and a rich colour scheme.
The good news is that no you don't, although I know of several people who have used this as a handy excuse to treat themselves to a brand new dining room set. There are several ways in which you can enhance or cure a dining table to ensure it promotes positive energy, and as with all cures or enhancements the one you choose will be the one that most appeals to you. The most common problems with tables and the ways in which they can be overcome are highlighted below. A square or rectangular table. If you have a square or rectangular table, to ensure everyone at the table can see each other clearly make sure the room is well lit and place mirrors on the walls. One of the unfortunate side effects of having a square or rectangular table is that the sharp corners create poison arrows which create negative energy. To minimize the disruptive effects of these, disguise them by placing a long, thick, highly patterned and decorative cloth over the table so that it touches the floor. Ensure that the areas of the room that the corners are pointing at are well lit with lamps. Enhance the room with natural plants and flowers as these will also help to counteract any negative energy.
A dining table that is too large. If there are only a few of you eating it can be quite daunting and relatively uncomfortable if you are seated at a large table. A simple cure for this is to set just one area of the table and create a decorative display at the other side. When creating a decorative display it is always best to represent the bagua area that the dining room or dining area is situated in. If for example the dining room is in the relationship area of the house, then an attractive display of pink and cream roses in a crystal vase, pretty pink stones and crystals scattered across the table and candles in pairs at either side of the flowers can make a stunning visual display. A glass table. A glass table causes energy to move very fast over the surface. To slow the energy down consider covering the table with a cloth. If you have bought a glass table because you like the design and do not want to hide it, place a large table decoration in the middle of the table top. The best decoration is one that utilizes wood or water or both, as this will help to bring about a calming effect.
