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.
A functional table does just that: adds function to the room. It is in easy reach of the main pieces of furniture, will usually support a lamp, and should have enough space for performing whatever activities take place in that space: holding the remotes, drinks, books, food, accessories, etc. It is difficult to accomplish this with a table of less than 24 inch.
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.
