5-Piece indoor wicker dining sets with glass tops fit kitchen nooks, sunrooms and smaller spaces without overcrowding. Typically, these five-piece ensembles include a table and four chairs. Ranging in style from casual and country to upscale or formal, they offer a cozier seating arrangement with plenty of room for serving and eating. Among featured rattan wicker dinette sets, table shapes include rounds and squares with glass or wood tops. Tempered glass adds a greater sense of space and brightness while wood is a classic choice that exudes natural warmth. Leg and pedestal table bases offer a greater range of style choices in wood or rattan cane and woven fibers. Pedestals can be open with decorative supports crafted from steam-bent rattan, they can showcase lattice and basket inlays or they can feature spindling inspired by rattan furniture from the early 1900s. Bamboo is another style choice that brings tropical flair to dining rooms or open spaces like sunrooms.
Chairs included with rattan and bamboo dinettes offer an appealingly casual view from every angle. Side chairs and armchairs are available in styles to complement every decor. Wingbacks and parsons-inspired chairs offer a hint of the islands and will fit well into upscale surroundings. Some feature seat cushions only while others include back support. Fabrics and patterns finish the selection process while adding just the right balance in color to complement finish choices.
Natural weaves crafted from rattan fibers feature natural color variances and characteristics that are unique to each piece. They add warmth and dimension in woven texturing along with a mix of wood and cane framing depending on table styles. Distressed and antiqued finishes hold vintage appeal while trendier brights and dramatic dark hues offer ways to spice up drab spaces. In between, neutrals and pastels provide even more decorating choices.
Among the more popular choices, coastal dinette sets in rattan will always be in demand. Their distinctive features include stick wicker in diamond patterns and aprons around bases that flare and arch for a more graceful profile. Wide arms and domed backs are also among the more comfortable aspects. Cottage wicker dining sets maintain the same open profiles with vertical spindling, cane arms and decorative arching crests.
Most kitchen wicker dining sets are for indoor use only. However, some featured rattan groupings can go outdoors in well-protected areas with full roof coverage. Finish options with these selections include an acrylic sealer that will require reapplication at home for full protection.
