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.
The Type of Dining Table: Believe it or not, furniture manufacturers actually offer different types of dining tables. But how does one differ from another when they all seem to be more or less the same; four legs holding up a flat table top. Thankfully, there are ways to differentiate one style of table to the next. First, the Accent Table. These are standard dining tables, however very ornately designed to provide a sense of classic romance. The type you might imagine inside the palaces or mansions of your favorite storybook.

Finishing: `Walnut and mahogany` always provide traditional `Wood` look to a piece of dining furniture! Finishing of a `Cherry; oak and pine, tend to look more casual to the visitors. A new technology of `Furniture Artistry` includes a term called `Extensia` which means that the length of the `Dining table` can be extended to a desired level of easy accessibility. (These featured overlapping panels can be extended to nearly double the table's length.) How concerned are you about staining and scratching? A wood tabletop is more susceptible to damage than glass, but can be refinished if needed. Traditional wood tables are a bit more forgiving, because they tend to feature carvings or figured veneers that help hide irregularities in the surface, while contemporary wood tables have little to distract you from errant scratches or water rings. Glass-topped tables are less susceptible to spills and staining, but show fingerprints more readily, so they require some diligence to maintain. Many hosts don't like glass tabletops because you can see your guests' laps and feet, but table settings will usually obscure the view and converting a `Transparent` view to `Translucent` view.

Keep in mind that the table should be in proportion to your dining room size. Since you are the host, it is important for you guests to sit comfortably and have free space to walk around. Try to leave a maximum of 42 to 48 inches and a minimum of 36 inches between your tables and the walls. About two feet of eating space is required for a person to eat comfortably. When sitting at the table try to have at least 30 to 36 inches from your knee to the back of the chair. Round Shape Table – Some people prefer round shape tables because they will add extra space around the rounded corners. While rounded corners can help accommodate additional guests around them, these tables typically need wider dining space in your room. You can also consider pedestal tables as they offer excellent leg room. Avoid large round tables as they would make it rather awkward for you to grab your favorite food on the table. However, these tables are ideal for formal dinner and playing cards and board games.
