The ideology of the dining area was developed in the brains of people of the Middle Age; Britons and other European dignities which were the upper class living in large manors or castles had a separate great hall as their dining area. This area had enough capacity for the seating of a large number of people to dine together. As a tradition, the family head used to sit at the head table which was a raised platform and the rest seats were occupied by the members based on the rank in the family. This tradition is still prevailing in a few joint families. The furniture that was used in the dining area was called a dining table or better say dining table set because it was a complete combination of a table and chairs together.

Traditionally, the wooden sets were introduced in the market but now you can find many new types made with different materials; some are lightweight; some are portable and even foldable. The dining table set is no more a piece of furniture for the upper class because many small homes have this furniture. The furniture industry has made this piece of furniture affordable for more and more people regardless of their class.
