The dining room is more than just a place where family members eat together. The boundaries between the living area and the dining area are becoming increasingly blurred. The dining area is becoming the centre of family life and plays a central role in social gatherings. Hence, the dining room should be furnished accordingly.
Dining room: a combination of cosiness and functionality
The design of the dining room as a central meeting place in the home is of particular importance. The family members exchange ideas, play evening games, and have meals taken together in this space; school children also do their homework here. The art of decorating this space lies in finding a balance between comfort and functionality. If there is enough space, the dining table can be a bit bigger. If the table is too small, it seems out of place and permanently disturbs the overall impression. In larger rooms, bold colours are also in high demand. They can be stronger than in dining rooms with limited space, where light pastels work best.
A sideboard or a buffet cabinet are suitable eye-catchers for the dining room. For one, the cabinets provide storage space for dishes, home accessories or decorative items, and they don’t leave the room looking barren and lifeless. In apartments where living and dining areas merge into one another, the zones can be optically delimited. This can be done e.g. by changing the flooring. A colourful carpet under the dining table adds an accent to this space. If the dining room is too small for the placement of special eye-catchers, you can rely on cosiness. It is better to lovingly arrange the seating area than to visually enlarge the space using tricks.
## Teak dining table
The dining table is the most important piece of furniture in the dining area. It is at the heart of the meal-time family gatherings. To follow the trend towards a natural living environment, more and more households are opting for a rustic teak table made of solid wood. Dining tables made of precious hardwood are virtually indestructible and become faithful companions for many decades. A particularly atmospheric ambience is provided by teak tables made of old recycled wood. They have been made from repurposed planks, planks and squared timbers that were formerly used in Southeast Asia for the construction of residential huts and terraces. In addition to the classic rectangular shapes, the teak furniture specialist Souren Furniture also offers teak dining tables with a round tabletop. Even those looking for something unusual for the dining area will find something in the product range. An expressive monastery table with massive trestle feet lends a medieval flair to the home.
Teak chairs in the dining room
The perfect complement to a rustic dining table made of solid teak wood are the matching chairs made of fine hardwood. Teak chairs for the dining room by Souren Furniture have an ergonomically shaped backrest and fascinate with an appealing design. Whether you want simple elegance or playful shapes, high backrests, armrest or a bar stool design - you will find dining chairs that suit every taste in the teak furniture specialist range. If you’re less set on the classic version of the seating arrangement, you can opt for one or more benches made of solid teak. Equipped with a matching colour edition, they are a real eye-catcher in the dining room. For a coherent overall concept in the dining area, display cabinets, buffet cabinets or shop cabinets made from solid teak wood are perfect complements.
