One point to keep in mind when choosing a table is how it will influence the social factor of your dining room. A round table is perfect for when you want to encourage conversation around the dining table. Also, it doesn’t allow anybody to sit at the head of the table, which is perfect for when you want to avoid any type of hierarchy.The same is true for square tables; however, square tables take up more space than round ones. And for the same number of diners, it’s better to opt for a rectangular one, as it offers more seating areas.
The space that your dining table inhabits should have a natural impact on the chairs you choose. For example, if you have a tall table in a contemporary kitchen area, you might prefer some tall bar stools, to give a breakfast bar look. Whereas, if your table is in an open-plan room, you'll want chairs that align with your sofa choice and other decorative touches!
