Apart from budget, the area of the dining space, the material and the design of the furniture should be taken into account while selecting dining tables and chairs.
Caring for your dining table In terms of the building materials you will be able to find everything from wood to wrought iron and glass. Each of these building materials has a completely different look and feel to offer. Irrespective of the particular building material you go for you need to make sure you take good care of it so that it lasts you for year. Protecting your dining table from scratches and dents is essential if you want to retain its beauty. Constantly shifting your dining table can also loosen its foundation hence it is ideally recommended that you keep it in a fixed location and make changes only when necessary.
Round Glass Table: Glass tables arent just for the living room or nightstand any longer. With a designer base, e.g. the Mensa table, with its birch plywood pattern reflecting a hanging pendant, the focus will be on the immaculate design. Its another case of form and function.
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.
Convertible Dining Tables: Many people these days dont actually sit down and eat in their dining rooms anymore. They end up sitting in front of the TV and eating on the couch. If you find yourself in this situation, consider a convertible coffee table which can double as your dining table. There are actually a wide variety of height adjustable tables on the market; these can be raised and often expanded to dining height when you want to chow down.
Inspect the Joint of the Base and the Table Top The original Saarinen table screws down onto a single threaded rod on the top of the base. There should be no visible screws between the top and the base. In order to check, you have to inspect the area of the table where the pedestal base meets the table top.
