Material wise - Wicker tables can be made purely from organic materials or a combination of synthetic and natural. Wicker fibers and rattan are durable material that might require some maintenance if left in the outdoors. However they are more flexible and comfortable.
Keep in mind that the table should be in proportion to your dining room size. Since you are the host it is important for you guests to sit comfortably and have free space to walk around. Try to leave a maximum of 42 to 48 inches and a minimum of 36 inches between your tables and the walls. About two feet of eating space is required for a person to eat comfortably. When sitting at the table try to have at least 30 to 36 inches from your knee to the back of the chair.
Apart from budget the area of the dining space the material and the design of the furniture should be taken into account while selecting dining tables and chairs.
It’s also important to pay attention to the height of the tables. While sitting people should have ample space for their legs to move. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the table top and top of the seat. While many of them are about 30 inches in style it will still vary depending upon your style and need.
Suspended Dining Table: This is sort of a concept piece but it works well for the more avant- garde minded. A suspended dining table hangs from the ceiling; rather than having legs it has wires. The setup is more difficult than your average table but this does give your place some edge.
The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
