Most happy family moments are around mealtimes when friends and family gather to share jokes, old memories, and create more memories for the future. Dining tables are should be purchased keeping in mind the needs of the family and social gatherings with family and friends that are likely to held on the table from time to time. For large joint families, dining rooms in close proximity to the kitchen are the heart of a home showcasing their wealth with heavy drapery and expensive wooden furniture.

Always keep the colour palette in mind and design of your dining area when purchasing a dining table so that it does not overwhelm other components in the area nor restrict movement of people. Though families generally prefer to have wooden dining table for its durability and elegant appearance, now there are several other options like metal, plastic and glass.

How many times have you worried about finding appropriate places for guests to eat during large family gatherings? Wouldn’t it be great if your dining table could magically become small when few people are at home and large when there are plenty of guests? With this beautiful example we   bring before you an innovative creation of our furniture designers that have created a glass topped table with teak bottoms fixed with aluminum sliders.

These wooden planks slide under the glass surface and table becomes almost square in size when not required and then becomes long and rectangular when these planks are pulled out. Delicately balanced on elegant wood planks at the center it brings sophistication and style to the area decorated with trendy industrial style chandelier. While the table is simplicity in itself with rectangular glass top above rich brown mahogany below it, the matching white chairs add class and angles to the unquestionable sophistication of the room.

Pretty Curves

Buying the right dining table for a small room that has a single entry and exit is not an easy job as it has to fulfill twin functions. One is to find the a table that meets needs of family and another is to ensure that it does not take up unnecessary space in the area. This artistic table is portable and can easily be detached and setup as per requirements where there are multiple guests around.  Built in eclectic style with fine quality mahogany wood clipped together in geometric shapes this table is sure to win admiring comments from guests. Its most unique feature is the star at its center that seems like a wooden cutout that is created by unique shapes of wood pieces that make up the entire table. This unique table's legs also do not follow the traditional four to six legs pattern that is common in most dining tables as each wooden piece is supported by a white wooden stand or leg.

If you are the kind that likes to have unusual things around the house and get compliments from guests then this lotus leaf shaped dining table should become a part of your collection. The casual yet elegant design of this rustic table allows it to be used as a free standing dining area against the wall or as a part of outdoor barbecue party. Designed by Mango Crafts the entire table has been made out of a single tree trunk to retain the unique coloring in the center and sides. Each piece has been cut out and stuck together in such a manner that they appear like several lotus leaves floating together on a pond. 

The table has not been given the usual veneer finish that is meant for unpainted furniture to bring out the rich shades and colors. This beauty should not be covered with a table cloth as that would spoil the effect but instead if it has a clear transparent glass top then you can enjoy the colors while keeping out the rough edges.
