perfect for a house that has little more than one room to use for a smaller library and the table with chairs in the center allows for plenty of room to use with a laptop or a good quiet space for a child to go and do homework or cuddle up with a good book.

The element of design used is proportion. The chairs are proportionate to the table. The chairs are also proportionate as a whole, the backs work with the rest of the chair. The proportion in this room will make you feel satisfied while you're in the room.

I like books in the dining area. Not sure why. Perhaps books lend themselves to conversation and food does too. Perhaps that is the common intersection.
