What makes your dining special?

What makes a dining table special?  With a world of designers creating new slick modern or contemporary chic industrial looks, it seems this is a bit of an open ended question, however we've set out to explore some answers.. 
After asking this question to some of the Modish Living friends, we found everyone had a different message to give. Some like the Scandinavian look seen on this Gothenburg table above.
Some friends preferred one of our best selling dining table, the Moss Reclaimed Dining Table, as seen above.  
When we asked why, the words that seem to be repeated by many were, the amount of character and history you can see and feel in the table.  Other comments were more around the natural feel of the table (being waxed, you can feel the grain, unlike mass produced ones which have a thick varnish coating protecting the wood).
But with modern city chic design going full strong on steel and wood, our Vardo range got the most comments.  There seems to be a big move towards mixing steel and wood.  Why?  "It seems this industrial look is a hot cool trend"  "Made to last" "Versatile" "look fabulous!".

Love the huge farmhouse taelbs too!! Hold out for what you love! I’ve got a huge table which I don’t love, (it’s orange, but was only $200!!) but may be able to improve it with some paint when I get inspired!
