Storage and Serving

Now that you have tables and chairs you should consider storage and display for your dining room. Below is a list of different storage pieces that you may want to add to your dining room.

Curio Cabinet: This cabinet is a free standing display case that has a glass front and sides without any enclosed cabinet space. Many styles include interior lights, glass shelves and mirrored backs.

China Cabinet: These cabinets are normally part display and part storage. The top half of the china cabinet resembles a curio cabinet and possibly contains a railing to allow you to display plates, while the bottom contains cabinets for the storage of other commonly used items.

Buffet: Buffets are storage pieces, very often a cupboard or “dresser” of sorts to store serving dishes and platters. The upper surface is used as a service area.

Hutch: A frequent addition to a buffet, a hutch can provide both display and storage, leaving room for food service as well.

Sideboard: A sideboard is a table with a wide drawer in the center that is flanked by drawers and cupboards on the sides and is used for storing serving dishes and platters as well as for serving food.

Server: Similar to a sideboard, a server is a shallow table with drawers and is intended to hold food before it is placed on the table. The primary difference is that a server doesn’t have cabinet space.

Common Wood Chair Styles

Windsor chairs are a style of chair that features turned spindles along that back of the chair, turned and angled legs, and turned stretchers between the legs as well as a carved saddle seat. The chairs were named because of the origination in the town of Windsor England.

Arrow back chairs are a variant of the Windsor chair in the pieces supporting in the back of the chair resemble arrows. They tend to be round at both ends but flattened in the middle to resemble arrows.

Slat back chairs have backs that contain at least one, possibly several, wide, flat, vertical supports.

Ladder back chairs are chairs that feature horizontal supports in the upper section of the chair, often resembling a ladder.

Parsons is a tall dining room chair that features a rectangular back and seat that are both upholstered.

Common Table Styles

Pedestal Table: This type of table usually has a round top with a single center support rather than four legs.

Leg Table: A leg table is a more traditional table featuring 4 legs.

Trestle Table: This table consists of two sets of legs that are connected by a horizontal beam. These tables are often good in dining spaces that are longer instead of square.

Drop Leaf Table: A table with hinged leaves that are unfolded for table extension.
