What could be more straightforward than counting the number of people in the family and then buying a dinning room table suitable to seat everyone at the same time?

The initial trick is, as stated above, is to choose one that will seat all your family members. The next decision to make is the style and this will depend on the type of home your have created. When it comes to modern dinning room furniture the boundaries of design, style and functionality are always being pushed in the pursuit of making the dinning room more interesting, more comfortable and able to blend in with style of your home.
I had a really good look around the web just to see what was available and how designers strive to make the humble dinning room a focal point of the home where family members and friends can relax and enjoy good food. Below are some of my favorites and while you may like some and not others you will realize that a quick online search will provide much more in the way of choice.
Notice how well the dinning room above fits so well with the other furnishings. It is in complete harmony, which is essential if you err on the side of open-plan living. I really like the whole appearance of this dinning room, as the furniture is a clever blend of pure and simple functionality while adding style with an almost industrial look with the chairs.
If you like the simplistic look that oozes chic then the above dinning set will be just your thing. I love the way the designer softened its impact on the room by creating a piece of furniture that is waif like with slim pillars and a glass top that would blend well with almost any type of furnishing style you have. This is one of those designs that would fit well into an open-plan living space because it commands no real attention but is still a beautiful piece of furniture when viewed upon.
This has to be one of my favorites because of its stunning natural beauty. I’m a real lover of wood and the way the designer has opened up the design by splaying the large timber legs is truly a work of art. The designer here really knows their stuff – look at how the chairs take a back seat to the design with their slender appearance, while allowing the center piece, the table, to dominate and command the overall design. This is one dinning room set I could certainly live with. If I had one beef with this furniture it would have to be the black vinyl looking seat coverings – for me this downgrades an upmarket piece of furniture to a 60′s thrift shop offering – if it was available in fabric, I’d definitely change it.
If you really like the Black & White then the above dinning room set will certainly appeal. This is one of those designs that could easy fit into any open-plan space or anyone who prefers the minimal approach to furniture design. What appeals here is the shiny black surface that is beautifully contrasted with the matt-finish brilliant white. I also like the idea that the chairs compliment the table perfectly with the two-tone effect.
If I had to interpret the above furniture then I would have to say that the designer had a Beach Condo in mind for the perfect setting of this beautiful dinning room set. The legs take on the appearance of cleaned and polished drift-wood and I’m positive this furniture would look right at home for anyone living by the ocean. The contrast of the wonderful tones in the wood is perfectly complimented with the soft rounded white chairs with a glass table top that doesn’t interfere with the other elements.
The focal point for this dinning room furniture is its top and this is enhanced through the clever use of a simply singular central pillar that holds the table. The seating, in its dark chocolate tone, also perfectly compliments its wood surface table counter-part. This type of design would most definitely sit well with deep mahogany or cedar flooring.
This dinning furniture does provide the impression of a ‘Canteen Style’ dinning area, however, with the right setting, such as depicted in the photo, it really works well because it is able to blend into the open-plan, minimalist style of living.
This dinning set strikes a commanding pose with its chunky feel, due the the thickness of the table top and minimalist leg design. With its deep mahogany wood and dark chocolate seating this dinning room furniture design stands out and is a wonderful piece of furniture to behold. I like the boldness to this design and I particularly like the deep color of the wood and the seating and it would fit well into any home that uses soft pastel shades on the walls. Note how well this furniture sits on the natural tone of the contrasting wood floor – one to consider when shopping for a new dinning set.
The simplicity of this dinning set comes into its own with the use of bold Black & White with powerful strong construction. The design is purposeful in that it represents a very bold statement with the thickness of the table top and legs. The use of standard spindle seating does soften the effect but the bench is certainly a powerful influence to the overall design. For this to fit well into a home the style of the interior would have to be equally as bold and ultra-modern.
The perfection combination of natural elements, stone and wood, make this a very chic dinning room set. The stone itself is carved to look like the winding of a tree trunk that is perfectly married with the table by the stone appearing through the wood. You could place this dinning room set in almost any style of home and its natural beauty would blend well. I am assuming from the photograph above that those chairs were never really meant to accompany the table – hence they only feature slightly in the background. I would hope that the designer here does provide chairs that match the beauty of the table.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that my first impression, when viewing this dinning room furniture, is that the designer was influenced by the Easter Island sculptures. For me it just has that type of look and appeal and the use of the heavy set glass top ensures that the beauty of the stone carved legs are not masked in any way. Maybe I’m wrong – maybe its a Stonehenge influence – either way there is something ancient in the carving and I personally find this type of dinning room furniture extremely appealing because of the minimal look and use of beautiful, natural materials.
This one of those dinning room furniture designs that really stands out. The unusual way in which the designer created a ribbon to support the table top is very unique and provides soft pleasing curves. In contrast the table top carries sharp reflective lines that overall provides for a soft, but bold look.
If your taste runs to the ‘Ultra-Modern’ with a minimalist, contemporary interior design then this stunning creation will be just what you’ve been looking for. I adore the sweeping ribbon singular table leg where the simple oval glass table top is perfectly balanced. The chairs here perfectly compliment the overall design with stainless steel legs and the bold use of color for the back and seat covering.
In my final selection of unusual and stunning designs I would have to say this is the most unusual of the pick. I really can’t make up my mind if I like it or not, but one thing is clear, the designer has managed to make a definitive statement with the bold use of the metal frame work. What is really nice about this design, and maybe easy to miss at first glance, is the use of curved glass for the table top. With the ends of the table top curving down, this is without doubt an unusual feature – let’s hope that your dinner doesn’t slide off the table and into your lap.
I really enjoyed putting this article together and giving you my short interpretation and views on each of the Modern Dinning Room Furniture Designs above.
