Your dining table is the centerpiece of all your meals. It should be sturdy, yet fashionable, reflecting your personal taste and unique style. Yet, if youve been using the same dining table for years, maybe its time for an update. Here are the latest contemporary trends to rock the world of dining tables.
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.
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.
Secret Dining Table: A couple in the woodsy foothills of Idaho built their 836 square-feet dream house out of passive solar straw bales and materials salvaged from the local landfill. This eco-house is on the small side, so theyve actually constructed a hidden dining table; its in point of fact, sunk into the living room floor, with built in seating. When not in use, the space is covered up with planks.
There are however a number of things that need to be considered when choosing a dining table for your home. Perhaps the most important aspect to consider foremost is the size of the table. Based on where you will be placing the dining table you need to determine what kind of size would be proportionate with the surrounding room.
Today you will be able to find these tables in many different colors and designs. Modern dining tables can actually serve as a great work of art that will not only serve the intended purpose but will also work wonders for your interior decoration.
