Upgrading your home from college crash pad shabby to grownup chic can be an exciting process. The cost of high quality furniture, however, can be rather intimidating. Here are a few suggestions on how to choose an oak dining room table that will compliment your home for decades to come.
Proportion: An end table should neither overwhelm the furniture it sits with, nor be swallowed by it. Is it to be grouped with a main piece of furniture (see functional table above), or is it more for show (see accent table)? Alongside a sofa, the depth of the table should be relative to the depth of the arm. Most sofas are at least 34 inch deep, with many topping 40 inch. A reasonable end table for this purpose will be around 20x27 inch rectangular, or 28 inch round. A big, beefy club chair will need a big, beefy table, and your petite antique wing chairs will need something much smaller, with more delicate lines.
Depending on the intended use, tables will these days come with additional features like drawer compartments. The tabletops also have additional features like sliding trays. People are increasingly settling for simpler but still elegant designs of tables meant for just one specific task. For example, one may buy a table meant for studying. You could also have a picnic table. Anyway, there is still much fancy for the bigger, more conventional tables with elegant design.
