A chest of drawers that doubles as a buffet is another great option. The storage in the drawers is perfect for table linens and this is a great place to store your silverware, dining accessories and serving platters and yet they will be handy for when you need to use them. If you have the space, you can add a lovely hutch to your chest of drawers and showcase that heirloom china and still store the other dining accessories. If a hutch is too large and in charge for your space consider adding some floating shelves to your dining room décor. Also a great way to display those just for looks pieces.
The dining room furniture we have today would be immediately recognizable by anyone that happened to pop back from Medieval Britain! Let’s face it a table is a table, four legs or a pedestal to rest the tabletop on. That said it makes the table sound purely function over form but that is certainly not the case. Furniture for dining these days is extremely stylish and beautiful. We probably don’t use our tables ever day to eat at, but many of us do use the table for our traditional Sunday lunch gathering.
Another important area to consider in a southwest dining room is the lighting. Lighting creates mood and should not be overlooked. Most homes, no matter the type of decor used, have a center light over the table. Consider using either an antique looking wagon wheel light or an antler chandelier in your southwest dining room. Be sure to include a dimmer switch no matter what choice you make for your room’s lighting. By using dim lighting, you will create a formal or romantic environment in your southwest dining room. To create a cheerful environment, turn your lighting to the brightest setting.
During ancient times, people generally ate in the kitchen sitting on the floor. It was more convenient to serve the food near the kitchen. When there were parties, people ate in the living hall. The dining room was often on an entirely different floor level. Historically, it is furnished with a large dining table and chairs. The most common table shape is rectangular with two armed end chairs and an even number of unarmed side chairs along the long sides.
