Traditionally, a dining room consists of the central dining table either rectangular or round, dining chairs with or without arms and a sideboard or credenza for functional serving and storage. In many contemporary homes, the dining room is predominantly used for special occasions with more casual dining spaces allocated in a kitchen or open-plan living area. These key gathering spaces for your household need to be functional and pleasant to inspire people to gather together frequently. A good rule for a contemporary dining area is to allow plenty of room for movement around the space. Don’t clutter your room, instead style it with essential pieces of Danish furniture available at The Modern Furniture Store.
