Formal Dining - When you have a more substantial home or have a tendency to do a lot of entertaining, a far more formal table may suit your design aesthetic. Select a large table with a dark wood for a traditional and upscale look or choose an elegant set with grand tufted chairs and ornate woodwork to impress your guests. If you need a more modern look, an all-white design will exude the modern-day sophistication you crave.
If you're buying chairs to complement a table in your home gauge the distance from the floor to the table apron to calculate if a chair will fit. (The table apron is a rail that runs between your legs to support the table top.) If you are buying a table to complement chairs in your house, measure from the ground to the seat of the chair and add eight inches to figure out how much space you need under the apron. This will ensure that a person sitting in the chair can actually get their legs under the table. Chairs with arms are another consideration. If you have a good space, then you will probably want the arm chair to tuck completely under the table, therefore you will want to be sure that the arm will fit under the apron, but be careful. In the event the chair arms regularly make contact with the table apron, the final may be marred. When contemplating arm chairs, also look at the distance between the table legs and the length between the arms of the chair to ensure they'll fit together easily.
