This is because your dining set must be completely in tandem with the decor of your dining room. If the both are not in sync then the result can be disastrous. If your entire dining room is decorated with modern objects (like crystal show pieces) then you must not get an antique dining table set. This would look out of place and would be a complete mismatch.
Inspect the Table Top and Pedestal Base A genuine Saarinen Dining Table comes with table top and a base, each made with two different materials. The base is made of heavy molded cast aluminum that is covered with a thick protective coating called rilsan. The rilsan comes in white, black or platinum. The table top is beautifully crafted from either of the material -laminate, wood veneer, natural granite, or coated or natural marble in a wide range of colors. If either the table top or the base is made of plastic, then it is definitely not a genuine Saarinen Dining Table.
Counter Height Dining Tables: With these tables, you feel like youre dining at a bar. Its definitely a contemporary look, that works great with open, loft-like spaces. High dining tables can also be used in the kitchen to seat 2 or 3 people for breakfast. Beware though, this isnt for the shorter among us.
With regards to the looks and styles of dining tables you will be able to find a plethora of options out there in the market. The old school conventional dining table is still a popular choice that can work well for your interior. But interested individuals have a host of modern style such tables that have a lot more convenience and style to offer.
Table Top Made of Arabescato Marble Closely inspect the marble used for the table top. Especially, if the table top is finished with white marble, check for the grey vein pattern on it. This is original Arabescato marble, common choice for a SaarinenDining table. In order to replicate the look, cheaper marbles like Carrara marble is used. Though both the marbles look similar you can easily differentiate them from the grey vein pattern. The grey pattern on the Carrara marble looksfuzzier, since the grains of the marble are of low quality. Hence, you definitely know these are not the genuine ones that you are looking for.
High and Low: Mixing high end dining tables with low costing chairs will not only save you some money, it will also create a stylish and eye-catching look that will add charm to any dining room. Dining Tables in the Kitchen: Many people are opting to place their dining tables smack in the middle of their kitchens, merging kitchen space with dining space. These homeowners arent afraid to place full sized tables in the midst of their open kitchens. Its an ingenious idea, which adds a sense of community and sharing to the kitchen. Of course, this only really works if youve got a large, ample kitchen to begin with.
