At least on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS fresh install, create and select a table. If you try to change table border you will find with a menu very difficult to differentiate one from each other.
This screenshot show the problem pretty clear: http://i.imgur.com/n215L8C.png
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a table on LibreOffice Write
2. Select the table
3. On Table toolbar, press the Borders icon
A menu that on older versions (beside bug #66008) clearly diferntiates one alternative from each other to toogle the borders of the cells.
Right now (at least Ubuntu 16.04) you find this: http://i.imgur.com/n215L8C.png
I use a 32" monitor and no need of glasses and is difficult for me to see which button toggle which border.

So how should it look like? Please include a visual proposal (attach the image to this report).

Visual proposal for Borders menu
Trying to be coherent with the new _flat_ design I suggest: http://i.imgur.com/yaCQ4OZ.png
I remove 3D borders and increase luminance of the inside gray from 70 to 82 (more contrast of the lines with the background).
At least maybe like [older versions](1) (the [border menu](2), the [Default area](3) of Table Format > Borders is also difficult to see).
It depends on your icon theme. Oxygen icons have an indicator that is easy to identify. Breeze, however, might need some improvements. Andreas, please check this.
Btw. There have been issues with these icons and dark themes reported and solved in bug 86472. Not sure if the solution is still true (running a bright Gtk theme atmo).

writer border style on mouse hover
I like your flat layout a lot.
attached is the tango icon theme (it's the second default theme in LibreOffice) do you know on mouse hover which border you will fill.
I can change the breeze icons, no problem, but the hover issue is still there. So if you can submitt a patch. I think it's very welcome.
I'm not a LibreOffice developer, I just file the bug. I don't understand the mouseover issue.
On Ubuntu 16.04 fresh install I've installed only Breeze and Galaxy icon themes.
Looking at [this article]: I have libreoffice-gtk -gnome -style-breeze -style-galaxy packages installed, which make sense.
Installing and enabling Tango (or Galaxy) themes are workarounds.
For regular millions of people using default theme (Breeze, at least on Ubuntu) this fixed would be a great improvement.
