Round tables are an important aesthetic option, with some clear advantages. They are more welcoming, versatile, social and less annoying for diners: the legs are less uncomfortable and because there are no corners, we can avoid painful encounters. However, they require a very special space and are not suitable for crowded parties.
When there's barely enough room for even a very small dining table, a breakfast bar can be a more practical dining furniture option, which is why we are including bar stools in this guide. Chic, fun and a little less formal than regular 'sit down' chairs, stools put the glamour back into mealtimes and simply tuck away, under the counter, when not in use. They really are ideal for modest homes where every spare inch of space counts.
This simple dining area is created right inside the living room, and is adds to the beauty and texture of the room with its subtle colors and simplicity. When it comes to dining rooms, ideas have no limits.
As mentioned, rectangular tables present a certain advantage in terms of capacity that round- and square ones do not. Imagine having to place all the diners to be seated at this elongated table at a round one – you’d have to have a pretty big round table!. For big dinner parties, it’s best to opt for an elongated/rectangular table, as you get more space for chairs and guests.
