The texture of the rugs, draperies and upholstered furniture gives the dining room in this antique home a warm and inviting feeling.  Since rooms that serve more than one function are more likely to be used, we off-centered the table.  This gave us the space to create a separate fireplace seating area. 

Even if your dining room is much smaller and less formal than the one in this photograph, an off centered table will make it feel more spacious and give you a place for a desk, bookcase or piano on the opposite side of the room.

Notice that the back of the bookcase has been painted the same color as the walls.  This helps to create a more comfortable sense of relationship between the bookcase and the room.
