Wine glasses or flutes? Red wine or white? Large forks on the inside or exterior? China plates or casual? Many people wonder about these numerous nuances of dining that come as second nature to others. Dining, a necessary lifelong ritual, may very well be the greatest adventure of all.
The one thing to remember is that a meal is never scripted. Though it may be served on a traditional wooden mahogany dining room set complete with four chairs (six if there are guests), dining still promises to be an adventure for the palate in the least.
Different cultures serve food differently and the roles at the table are dictated ergo. While some cultures prefer rounded tables to create a circle of trust ambiance, squared or rectangular tables, though formal, are equally as popular and at times considered more desirable.
Glass tables are elegant as are rich wood ones, and while glass records every touch, wood already has a history inset in each groove. Most wood tables are very unique in that they have visible predetermined knots, while glass tables are often beveled on the edges. Sometimes metal is chosen to complement glass, at other times innovators tried to integrate natural wood with a glass element to serve decorators and buyers the illusion of both elegance and informality. Why the charade? Because more often than not, people prefer pieces with the versatility to go in either direction without sacrificing one feature or another.
Etiquette serves quite a purpose at the dinner table, or so Miss Manners has been swearing for years. The disposition at the table is very important in the sense of relaxing guests or maintaining a business-like air. Formal dining table sets almost long for work related functions, but if it's a social mixer you'll host, contemporary casual may be the better direction. The ideal dinner table will offer a combination of both and perhaps best reflect your tastes and preferences.
While others are trying to decipher whether glass and steel is a better fit than wood and glass or even fabric and wood, the consumer must choose a style that personifies the room, the personality and the idea of the meal.
Innately meals are to be shared, it's up to the owner to rediscover what he or she wants to communicate in the event of table talk chats.
