Six-Seater Dining Table Sets Are Not Commonplace
A six-seater dining table set is ideal if mealtimes are a family affair. They can also double up as an adequate buffet board for parties and larger gatherings.

Pedestal Base Dining Table Sets Are Chic
If eclectic is not your thing and you prefer a more chic look, you can go with a pedestal-base dining table that will be sure to grab eyeballs with its grandiose yet elegant appeal. High-back, ergonomic chairs will keep the conversation at the table and not have you moving to the couch for your after-supper coffee.
Four Seaters Dining Table Sets Are Versatile

It will save you a bit of space over the larger six or eight seater tables but is still adequate to accommodate the average nuclear family. Check out this set with its sleek lines and clean design. It rates high on comfort and utility without compromising on looks. With its clean white lacquered table top and wooden legs for both the table and chairs, what’s there not to like?

Stick to a simple classic style and you have yourself a winner. This solid walnut wood table albeit in a simple classic style exudes richness of its own.
Nothing Beats The Opulence And Class Of Marble Dining Table Sets

Neutral coloured marble dining table sets are also easy to work into the colour scheme of your home. This light coloured marble table top complements the darker marble flooring perfectly and stands tall on a sleek chrome-finished stand. With its uniquely designed chairs to match, it is a truly beautiful and classy modern dining table set.
The Shape Of Your Dining Table Set Matters
Though rectangular dining tables seem the most popular, dining tables come in all shapes and sizes. It’s important to choose a shape that suits your dining room and complements its décor.
Round dining table sets work well in terms of elbow room and style. With a lazy susan in the centre, they are perfect for hearty family-style meals. This beautiful pedestal-base table in wood with vintage-style upholstered chairs is wonderful for intimate dinners and long drawn-out conversations.
Square dining tables can seat eight or four depending on the size. While they offer a huge surface area for serve-ware, they are also trendy and more practical than rectangular tables for having meal-time conversations. This square four-seater dining table set has a high gloss surface supported by a sturdy metal contemporary frame and chairs to match. In soft neutral tones, it can find a natural place in any modern home.
Smaller Dining Table Sets For Compact Spaces
If space is a constraint, you could always go for a smaller dining table. Stick to sleek lines and simple designs. These small dining table sets can be placed against a wall to save space. Straightforward metal frames holding up a marble, wood or glass table with a matching set of two or four chairs is perfect for small meals and can double up as a workstation when required.
The dining table set is one piece of furniture that you are going to use at least two-three times a day if not more. So, make sure that you choose wisely because you know what they say – the best memories are made gathered round the table.
