The round table is a classic! Almost a must have in the kitchen and a very elegant decorative element when placed in a dining room. The round table goes well with everything, it has no edges and therefore the capacity is larger.

Thanks to the absence of edges in the central area there is more space for storing food and dishes. The round table is ideal for large families, for those who often invite guests home or for those who like to live in a very chic but not too sophisticated environment.

If you opt for a round table for 6 people we recommend to choose the size with a diameter of 120 cm so that each guest or family member will have enough space to enjoy the meal.

Since every diner will have the same exact space at their disposal, they will feel more comfortable without the embarrassment of deciding who should sit at the head of the table, as happens with rectangular tables but also with oval-shaped ones.

The Potential of the Square Table

The potential of the square table: square tables are less common than other shapes but they’re actually more versatile.

The square table is less common in our houses than the rectangular or round one. This is because in order to perform at its best (and not remember the small bar tables) it must have the side of a certain width (at least 90 cm).

Why you should choose a square table.

If the shape of the room is square instead of rectangular, the square table proves to be an appropriate and also original choice. Moreover, it is the shape that best suits interiors that wink to the East, with minimalist and very trendy furnishings. The square table fills the room with extreme elegance without being too invasive, which is why many young couples opt for this solution.

If you are more than four people in the family or if you often invite friends home, opt for a square extendable table; when everyone has left it can be closed without the slightest effort.

How to place a square table.

The same positioning guidelines apply to square tables as to round tables: they fit well in unstretched spaces. Scenographic and impact, if large they require a suitable area.

Positioned at 45° to the walls, instead of parallel, the square tables make the chairs more comfortable. Since the four sides are equal, calculate that the minimum space per diner is 70 cm (the proximity to the corners would cause annoying overlaps). To put 8 people at the table, you need tops over 140 cm on each side.

The ideal location of the dining area is next to a window, to enjoy maximum natural light. A light source should then be provided in the centre, with a single chandelier or several suspensions however grouped, depending on the size of the top.
