Elevate the Elegance. When you think of a modern style dining room think of it in terms of a woman's favorite little black dress. A simple black dress can be elevated in elegance with the addition of some shimmering silver or sparkling diamonds. You can create an atmosphere of grandeur in a modern designed dining room with the addition of some shimmering lights and sparkling accessories. Pendant lights work well in a dining room. They can be placed throughout the room to highlight areas of interest. They can also provide the perfect amount of light above the dining room table. The reflection of the light on the glass table top makes the surface sparkle like diamonds. A large silver mirror placed on an accent wall will add a shimmering affect to the entire room.
Just utilize an expansive dining table in the event that you have a requirement for central space for such things as a candles and centerpiece.

Traditionally dining room sets were composed of a large rectangular table surrounded by chairs. The two chairs at either head had arms while the chairs along the sides were armless.

Here is a look at some of the more common styles of tables and chairs that are available today.
