Modern Dining Redefined: Unique Table Design Concepts

Blox Social
Posted on
Oct 28, 2023

Some of our most memorable times at home are centred around mealtimes. Whether a quiet dinner with the family or a festive feast with friends, your dining table is at the centre of fun times and beautiful memories.

Picking a unique but classy dining table can add a whole new dimension to this and act as a conversation starter when you host parties at home. 

Design Concepts to Explore

Here are six unique dining table designs that can add beauty and elegance to your mealtimes.  

  1. The rectangular dining table is a classic. But it is also one of the most common. Add a unique twist to this timeless form with gold trimmings or rounded edges. A wooden rectangular dining table with a resin centre strip can do away with the need for a table runner.
  2. Circular dining tables are a favourite with homeowners looking at a distinctive piece of furniture for a small space. Picking an oval dining table with tapering edges will help save space while giving you a piece-de-resistance.
  3. ‘When in doubt, go with square’ is recommended by most interior design experts. A square dining table with angular chairs or a single central leg or stump holding it up can add a quirky dimension to your dining space.
  4. Dining tables in odd geometric shapes are often avoided because they do not fit into the contours of most homes. But this is precisely the reason these tables can be attractive and make a great addition. Triangular dining tables are all the rage. Wavy and multisided dining tables are also growing popular. These are showstoppers that you must have if you like out-of-the-box style furniture.
  5. Dining tables with nesting chairs or a bench-style seating arrangement can be a blessing for a small flat or apartment. A low table with upholstered seats can blend in with Japanese or Korean-themed interiors and look quite elegant as well.
  6. Collapsible dining tables are practical and compact. Picking one can be a good idea if you are looking for a low-maintenance, space-saving option. Expanding circular dining tables are very popular these days. You may also pick one with sides that can be propped open when you need to accommodate guests.

Functionality Vs. Aesthetics

  • Space matters – Picking out the perfect dining table design requires a clear understanding of the available space and your home layout. The dining area is built into the hall in most modern flats and apartments. Your choice of dining table should complement the overall flow and not stick out as an intrusive addition.
  • Material elegance – Modern dining tables are available in a variety of materials. You can pick from wood and epoxy, glass, marble, granite, and wood veneer, to mention a few. It is a good idea to base your choice on two factors – ease of maintenance and overall aesthetics. Form and functionality – Pick a dining table design that will elevate the aesthetics and functionality of the space. Make everyday dining an exercise in elegance and refinement with your choice of dining furniture. However, ensuring that your dining space blends in with the rest of your home décor is also important.
  • The little extras – When searching for a one-of-a-kind dining table, it is worth dedicating time and effort to look for a true masterpiece. For instance, a wooden table with black epoxy and gold trim can turn a dull dining area into a truly magnificent space. Similarly, you may want to consider a green or pink marble dining table instead of a grey one to add some colour to your home.
  • Seating with grace – We often overlook the importance of comfortable chairs at the dining table, focusing solely on the table itself. This mistake can ruin the beauty and function of your dining table. The chairs can either complement or contrast with the table. For instance, a metal and fabric chair would pair well with a marble-top dining table. Ensure this is a well-considered decision.


The dining table is an essential piece of furniture in any household. It is also one of the most frequently used pieces. It is the focal point of family meals and the centrepiece of any parties you host. Choosing a distinctive table can enhance the elegance and sophistication of your home.
