Dining Table & Furniture
Dining tables are normally sold in dining sets in Dubai. Of course, you have the chance to find solely dining tables too, but anyhow, you will need some chairs to pass with them so you can also think about buying a smaller or larger dining set in your home. In the UAE, apartments are bigger and normally also feature an alone standing dining corner which is not in the kitchen.
It is quite important to note for expats when furnishing their homes and wish to invite also local friends for dinner that Arabic people never eat in their kitchens. Never, ever! The kitchen is the women's place where they prepare the dishes, chitchat or play with the children while the men are having some pleasant talk in the living room or the living rooms separate dining area. Even if you have place in the kitchen where they put a table, it is for the kids normally or the woman to deal with cooking and that is it. So do not place the dining set in the kitchen this time unless you will not be having any Arabic guests.
