Choosing the Right Wood Type for Your Dining Table

Wood's natural versatility means it can adapt to various design preferences, from rustic to contemporary. Its ability to be shaped, stained or painted ensures a wooden dining table matches any dĂ©cor style. For its longevity and beauty, wood remains a top choice for dining table styles in any era. Explore the options below. 


Known for its strength and durability, it is a classic choice that complements traditional and modern designs. Its pronounced grain pattern adds character and warmth to any dining area. The Alpine 85” Modern Dining Table is a perfect example of this traditional style.


The material of your dining table should reflect and complement your home's design theme. Solid wood or reclaimed wood tables anchor a space with warmth and rustic charm. Consider how the texture, color, and finish of the material can enhance your room’s design.


Versatile and easily incorporated into various design schemes, offering a lighter color palette.

Sustainable Materials for Stunning Dining Tables

At World Interiors, we utilize sustainably sourced wood to craft eco-friendly dining tables that elevate your home.

Types of Dining Room Tables

Reclaimed Wood

One of our primary materials, reclaimed wood, not only brings a piece of history into your home but also reduces the demand for new lumber. Each dining table crafted from reclaimed wood is unique, featuring textures and patinas that tell a story. The Cordoba Vintage Reclaimed Dining Table provides a casual charm to any dining space. The weathered look provides a versatile look suitable for a kitchen table.

Mango Wood

Another of our favorite materials. As a fast-growing, sustainable wood, mango is another favorite of ours. Once the trees no longer produce fruit, they are repurposed into stunning furniture, giving new life to what otherwise would be waste. Browse our Bondi 80” Dining Table and add a vintage touch to any style home.

Acacia Wood

Known for its durability and striking patterns, acacia is a sustainable choice due to its rapid growth rate. Using acacia wood for our dining tables allows us to offer hardwearing and beautiful pieces without depleting slower-growing resources. Add a Belfrie 72” Acacia Wood Dining Table that complements any décor style and accents your dining space with a modern touch.

FAQs About the Types of Dining Room Tables

Whether you're furnishing a new home or updating your current space, it's common to have questions about choosing the perfect dining table style that meets both your aesthetic preferences and practical needs. To help simplify your decision-making process, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions.

How Do I Choose the Right Style of Dining Table for My Room?

Choosing the right style involves considering the overall aesthetic of your dining room and how you intend to use the table. Select a table that complements your room's décor for a cohesive look. Consider round dining tables for more intimate spaces or to create a cozy atmosphere. Rustic dining tables add warmth and character, perfect for a more casual, welcoming setting. If your home features a modern or contemporary design, trestle tables or options that mimic mid-century modern style can offer functionality and style.

What Are the Most Durable Materials for a Dining Table?

The durability of a dining table often depends on the material. Hardwoods such as oak, teak and acacia are renowned for their longevity and resistance to wear, making them excellent choices for dining tables. These materials ensure durability and bring natural beauty and warmth to your dining area.

How Can I Tell if a Table is the Right size for My Space?

To determine the right size, measure your dining area and ensure enough space around the table for chairs and movement (typically, 3 feet of clearance on all sides). Consider the number of people you plan to seat regularly and choose a table size that accommodates your needs without overcrowding.

Can I Mix and Match Dining Tables and Chairs?

Absolutely! Mixing and matching dining tables and chairs can add a dynamic and personalized touch to your dining space. When pairing different styles, consider the color scheme or material type to maintain a cohesive look. Explore our dining chairs collection to find chairs that complement your table and enhance your room's overall aesthetic.

The Timeless Influence of Mid-Century Modern on Dining Tables

The mid-century modern design movement has left an indelible mark on the world of furniture, with its emphasis on clean lines, organic shapes and functional beauty. This iconic style flourished from the mid-1940s to the late 1960s and continues to influence contemporary furniture design, including dining tables.

Dining Room Table Styles

At World Interiors, we celebrate the enduring appeal of mid-century modern design by incorporating its aesthetic principles into our dining tables while embedding modern innovations and a commitment to sustainability.

One of the hallmarks of mid-century modern furniture design is the creative use of legs. Tapered, splayed or pedestal legs provide a distinct aesthetic characteristic of the era and enhance the sense of space and openness in dining areas. One of the accomplishments of the mid-century modern style is that it highlights past style features in a unique light, showcasing the furniture in a whole new light.

Pedestal tables are so versatile they can appear in a classic Victorian-style home or a more modern-style Cape Cod. Plus, you can blend unique materials, such as wood and cast iron, giving a table a whole new texture, which is just one of the many benefits of choosing mid-century modern furniture.
