Black can definitely add a dash of sophistication to a space and help to introduce a more contemporary feel. Black oak dining tables and chairs can use the colour to varying degrees, from upholstery on the chairs and a dark metal framing around the oak surfaces to full-on painted.
Too much black in a space can perhaps be overwhelming, and it is famously a colour that will make a room feel smaller – white achieving the opposite. But whether you prefer black oak dining tables and chairs that include a solid oak table, or a rectangular, circular or extendable version, black can be a colour that works well with others. Add grey and white touches for instant depth.
Complement your black oak dining tables and chairs with furniture in the industrial style, with black metal frames embracing the finished wood. Try a rug with a black and white pattern to play with a monochrome theme, with framed black and white photos among your choice of wall art.
