Sturdy Solution: When choosing between a table with legs or a pedestal
base, remember that pedestal tables can fit additional chairs more
easily than most leg tables. But tables with legs tend to be more stable
and less likely to tip if something heavy (like your 20 lb. turkey) is
placed near the edge.
Turn a New Leaf: When it comes to table leaves, try to keep them in the
table as much as possible. A stored leaf may not age in parallel with
its table, and is more prone to warp out of shape.
Looking Glass: They look elegant, but glass top dining tables can
require more cleaning to keep the obvious fingerprints at bay. Keep that
in mind if the glass top look is what you want.
Show Your Style: Your dining room can benefit from a little
"mix-and-match" attitude. Don't be afraid to invest in a quality dining
table and combine it with an antique buffet or coordinating -- but not
matching -- chairs.
Measurement Matters: Always measure your dining room before buying
furniture, particularly to avoid a tight fit when every chair is
occupied by a dinner guest.
Simply Stated: Remember that dining chairs can also be used as accent
pieces in other rooms. Look for chairs that suit your style, and
consider giving them a dual role in your well-designed space.
Please be Seated: When selecting dining chairs, be sure to look for good
back support and strong arms. These features not only provide comfort
but will also help ensure that guests will want to linger over coffee
