The Beauty of Round Dining Tables and Some Fun Entertainment


Round dining tables are great for conversation and 
they fit nicely in rooms with a 
more square shape or with angled windows or in a corner.
We are looking at them for two clients,
one with a square dining room and another 
for a small breakfast nook.
Makes me want one, too!
See the round-up at the end of the post...


A 60" round can fit eight small-ish dining chairs...and a 48" round can seat six.  A lot of 48" rounds have extensions to seat a couple more people.



They can cosy-up a breakfast banquette....

EVERY one gets to sit at the head of the table.

This should keep you busy...in a good way!  
We just saw two good movies, The Big Sick (funny, poignant and with good acting) and Dunkirk (keeps you on the edge of your seat).  Both are true stories.  

We also just got hooked on the television series,
The Last Tycoon on Amazon by F. Scott Fitzergerald.  

My friend JoAnn and I went to the 
Degas, Impressionists and French Millinery 
exhibit here in SF.  It's amazing!  You can see the art and vintage French hats while getting a feel for the hardships on the labor force that produced them, the high society that could afford them... and the artists that observed it all.

    1. Try your existing chairs with the new table.

  2. We have a round antique table with a leaf in our vacation rental. The base has a fox, a ram, a buck and a boar--each elaborately carved and about the size of a cat. They don't make 'em like they used to.

  3. Love round for intimate conversations and a feeling of informality! We have round tables in both the kitchen and dining room (the farm table moved into my in-progress studio). Great inspiration to pin and savor! xox

  6. Our round dining table has 4 leaves so it works for all occasions around here. We have had this table for over 30 years, solid wood, weighs a ton, Nichols and Stone. Its old enough now that the wood has a beautiful satin patina. I love round tables, they just work as beautifully illustrated in your post!!

  7. When I redid my dining room, I gave away my 4'x8' dining table and bought this: http://charlotteandivy.com/furniture/dining-tables/left-bank-black-pedestal-table. The finish is beautiful and it comes in that very elusive 54" which gives a little more room for its most common use these days, my library table. It also comes with leaves. and Charlotte and Ivy have terrific customer service.
