It seems that the trending style in dining tables and chairs have slowly become more casual. Gone are the very formal large tables with the high back chairs. Instead now you are seeing what is called the dining benches – which is a dining table that is lower and more casual. These dining benches can have sides the fold down and then folds up if more people are at the table. The chairs or low stools bring the entire dining experience down a bit making it more casual and comfortable.
All the dining furniture is lower and can just barely be noticed but when you are eating dinner. These are a more causal feel about all the dining furniture. Dining furniture includes multi-functional servers and buffets, chairs and low stools. The tables come in a variety of round or rectangular dining benches all of which can be expanded to fit the entire whole family and then folded back up, for causal meal for just two.
All of this has trended to match the homes that are becoming small, often with no dining room. These dining benches and low stools can make any room a dining area such as part of the living area. Gone are the day of the grand, formal dining rooms used only for special occasions; today’s dining areas are far more casual and used much more often. Wood styles, finishes, table shapes and chair types all show this more relaxed feel, where comfort and usability are most important.
