Dining Table @ Haus

I think I found the dining table that fits my dining room. It was kinda like a love -hate relationship at first but after I saw this particular table, I just had some feeling for it. I kinda felt like it just fits in well.

Dining tables over here are usually round or rectangular. But recently the trend has been square tables. When I first spotted them around the furniture malls, my first impression was ... they looked like mahjong table! I didnt like the concept.

We visited Haus at both their outlets in Puchong and Damansara Mutiara. They now have a much larger showroom at Tropicana Mall.


As an alternative, we also spotted this rectangular table. This will be our 2nd choice.

Both the dining tables are made from MDF (medium density fibreboard) material and not chipboard of ABS material, so its quite sturdy and solid. Of course, if you compare it to solid wood (like teak) its nothing great.

From what I have observed, they would usually have a 40% discount during their sale time to clear existing stock and colors and once cleared, they would bring in new stock and some new colors but hey, how different can colors of dining tables be, right? So I really dont mind "old stock".

Do you believe in Feng Shui? All I know is the smoother the surface, the faster your "fortune" or "luck" will slip off! So most fengshui masters would actually recommend wood-based dining tables. And the dining table is one big element that matters in our life. Err .. me not fengshui believer or master .. just reading up for fun here & there *smile*.

Feng Shui....
No wonder my mom bought marble table. I think it is becos of it's smooth top...

Why rectangle and not round one?
I thought round means "yuin yuin moon moon".....

If u are getting the square one, make sure u buy the edges protector. So, that it wont hurt lil monster if he accidentally bump into it.

actually i like the square table, very cosy for small families, the long rectangle table will be nice for big families :)

the colours are very neutral, great for other decos!

personally I think rectangular dining table would be more practical ie more leg space under table :-)

hmm.....about feng shui....read it somewhere also but not so much on smooth top that slips your wealth or fortune away....but more on "chi".....wood based promotes more calm and harmonious atmosphere at home....so do you feel calm, cozy when visiting my place hah??? hahahaha

Anyway, to me both choices are not bad....most importing thing is it fits nicely and practical into the dining area.
