Midcentury

White tulip-style round dining table by CB2.
CB2 Odyssey Tulip Dining Table $369
Shop

Because its tabletop is composed of lacquered composite and its base is powder-coated steel, its price stays well below that of the midcentury Eero Saarinen-designed original ($3478) upon which this four-seater version was modeled. A beveled edge around its circumference is it yet another cool detail.

Organic Modern

An ample, polystone (polyurethane resin mixed with powdered stone additives) top looks just like poured concrete, although it's much lighter and waterproof. Strong, tapered acacia-wood legs only add to its quality of construction. It's also versatile enough for use as an outdoor dining table; take it outside it for alfresco meals under the stars.

Farmhouse

Grain Wood Furniture Valerie Solid Wood Dining Table $460 $426
Shop

A real wood dining table for under $1,000 is hard to come by but the construction of this hardy, solid pine version—sourced from renewable forests in Southern Brazil— has us impressed. Its driftwood-tone finish highlights its natural knots and grain and its surface has been stylishly distressed.

Bohemian

While on the smaller side—at 24-inches square it seats two—this gorgeous Moroccan dining table is a statement piece, perfect for small-apartment dwellers who are tight on space. Intricate hand-carved bone inlay detailing throughout make it a showpiece for those who love its relaxed, bohemian spirit.

Coastal

A round wood drop-leaf dining table with a carved, urn-style base and four splayed legs.
Haverty's Furniture Avondale II Round Dining Table $1,100
Shop

Featuring one leaf that converts the table to a 52x69-inch oval, this round dining table still seats four while sliding into narrow spaces like nobody's business. It's composed of a blend of sturdy ash solids and white oak veneer, while the trestle leg base provides its sturdy support.

Art Deco

A round glass-top dining table with gold tone legs that meet on the floor.
CB2 Silverado Brass 47" Round Dining Table $349
Shop

The boldness of its geometric brass-plated frame coupled with the utter simplicity of the tempered-glass tabletop is directly inspired by the glamourous, symmetrical furniture produced during the Art Deco period. It's also elegant enough to host a formal gathering and seats four with ease.

Industrial

A red metal rectangular dining table with four legs connected by an X base.
Vecelo Industrial Dining Table $214
Shop

A waterproof and scratch-resistant kid-friendly dining table—that seats six in a pinch—is a boon for families who need multipurpose furniture. (Think: dining table, plus an impromptu desktop workspace and arts-and-crafts table in one.) Its X-brace shores up its sturdiness and its candy-apple red finish give an otherwise neutral industrial space an unexpected dose of color.

Traditional

An antique brown dining table.
Casa Florentina Farnese Extension Dining Table $2,399

Distinctive antique walnut wood table—with three leaves comfortably seats eight. The curved trestle leg design adds class to style. It's constructed in Italy of beechwood and tanganika walnut veneer.

Global

An oval carved-wood coffee table with bun feet.
World Market Oval Tribal Carved Wood Coffee Table $400 $200

Yes, technically this one's a coffee table. But those partial to the global design style will appreciate its intimate, low-slung stature and ability to seat up to five people. Surround this hand-carved mango wood piece with a bevy of Moroccan leather poufs and comfy floor cushions, order some African takeout, and pretend you're lazing the day away somewhere in Marrakech.

Transitional

A round wood table with four tapered and splayed legs.
Progressive Furniture Barcelona Oak Dining Table $454 $349

Rubberwood is an oft-misunderstood material: It's actual, solid wood that's harvested sustainably from Asia. Stained with a light oak finish, this rubberwood dining table is a great example of the transitional interior design style—it rides that fine line between being modern and traditional.
