The ideal solution is to opt for a table with extendable or flexible that will just open for large tables and fold for everyday use. As for the material, go for the naturalness of the wood, the modernity of the glass or the industrial spirit of the wood-metal mix. Form side, you have the choice between a round or rectangular model. Square tables are also popular and ultra-trendy.
To accompany the table, it is important to choose comfortable seating. Indeed, meals taken around the dining room are often longer and should be conducive to relaxation. Choose the foam seats or plan chair cushions. The big trend is also at mix of styles. Why not choose chairs in different styles and colors? For tight spaces, prefer stools or benches that will slide under the table after use. They are however less comfortable and do not allow to rest the back especially if the meal drags a little.
