Vintage Dining Room Sets
All of a sudden, your grandparents' dining room set seems very appealing. Vintage and retro pieces have the character of furniture used 20 or more years ago and are still favourites among buyers. Pick out the set that fits your space in terms of material, shape, and colour. Many on the market remain timeless examples of quality. You can also find accessory pieces to go with it.Dining Room Accessory Pieces
Drink and tea trolleys are practical accent pieces that serve a purpose. Serve wine and other beverages using the cart to deliver drinks to your guests, whether in the dining room, kitchen, or other living space. Vintage and retro sideboards and buffets have drawers for silverware and linens as well as multiple cabinets with doors to house serving dishes and other items. Place vintage dining room chairs beside accessory furniture to provide additional seating.Materials
Vintage teak dining furniture sets as well as ask, beech, and other hardwoods, are hard-wearing and hold up to day-to-day use. Older specimens may also have unique finishes, such as chrome, fabric, and glass, that exude charm characteristic of their age.Shapes
If your dining room is longer than it is wide, vintage rectangular-shaped dining furniture sets fit into the space so that everyone feels at ease while dining. Depending on the table's length, you should be able to seat four to eight guests comfortably. A round dining set along with oval and square-shaped tables works well in any location. Mid-century modern examples may include built-in table extensions that pull out from underneath. Some extensions hinge on each side of the table and pull up to increase the table's surface area. When measuring your space, allow for 91 centimetres from the table edge to the wall or another piece of furniture so people have plenty of room to move around. Moreover, provide a minimum of 61 centimetres of space between each person seated at the table.Colours
Some vintage dining sets may be made from light, medium, or dark-toned wood or laminate and include matching chairs covered in retro-looking fabric designs, such as pink or green florals. You can refurbish seat cushions as well to create a different design. Retro-looking pieces may have black, white, and other coloured finishes.
