Please my my previous post below but I couldn't sort out my profile. Rejoined in the hope it will now work. Here's hoping

We are getting so fed up in trying to choose a kitchen table so wondered if anyone out there could help. Please see the photo on my profile of our new kitchen, we moved in 2 weeks ago.
The floor is grey tile, work surfaces brown earth stone, units off white with faint wood grain. Hob and extractor fan black glass.
Now the question is do we go glass, if so clear or black or wood ? We are worried the wood wouldn't be modern enough but glass to stark. We have been looking at extendable tables as normally it will just be the 3 of us want want the option of 6+. Then the question is what chairs? Arghhhhh
There is a snug area off the kitchen which has chocolate walls and a brown leather sofa.
Any advice or thoughts would help massively. Thank you
We have white matt units and island, wood floor and had a table made for us by a joiner using elm we salvaged from the front of the house. Most joiners can supply wood if you don't have your own, and then you can make the design and size exactly to your spec. Ours is v modern. It's not as expensive as it sounds, either.
We have ended up making or having made a lot of items in the house eg desks bookcases shelving etc as the right size or shape is not available.
I have read one of your posts before taffeta and your table sounds perfect. The only other wood we have, hope you can now see, is a wooden window sill and blinds. So not sure if it would look out of place.
How hard is it to find reasonably price nice furniture. This is only the first room we have the rest to do yet. I will end up driving myself mac
I can't see the photo of your kitchen, but a furniture maker once told me that any wood goes with any wood. I've always stuck by that and mix my woods in every room, ie some oak, some cherry etc. But then I don't like matchy matchy interiors and think they look too twee and too planned.
So I'd be inclined to go for something that didn't match and a black glass table would be like you'd got it to match the cooker and extractor fan. You could get a modern wooden table, in a light oak maybe?
Thank you for all of your ideas. Going to look into the dark wooden table and light modern chair. May have to search long and hard as we need 6 chairs. I am sure I will be back once we begin on our next room. Thank you
