The striking spherical legs give the furniture an eye-catching look, however, it's the bold use of stripes that really sets this space apart.

One of the most common dining trends this year is white on white. So, if you already have some shades of eggshell, ivory, pearl, or white in the room, you might want to add a white marble dining table to complete the look. These tones are known to blend together perfectly, giving you a relaxing environment, whether it's for dining, entertaining, or even studying. However, as you invest in modern dining tables, make sure you also have some eye-catching lights or unique furniture styles, such as modern dining chairs or benches, to help you tell your personal design story.

A dining table can be an expensive investment, so you'll also have to take your time searching to mark the key criteria that you expect the table to meet at home. With changes in lifestyles, demands and needs, dining tables have gone from being superficial tables to others that have much more personality.
