Dining table: All round but which one?
Lorene Frank Farrior
December 6, 2012 in Design Dilemma
My new flat has an open concept living area. The dining table will be a work space a great majority of the time.The room is grand and I'm using eclectic items. My 4 choices for a dining table: 1) a black table with little girth. Modern. Seats 4, 35" round. 2) Blond wood, handcarved, rustic. Seats 6. 55" round. 3) Original Arts and Crafts 1930's antique. Dark. Seats 4-24. 42" round. Thick beveled glass 40" round. No base at this time. I'm leaning to a comfy wingback for daily use or a country French armchair. Hardwood floors are medium in stain color and walls are vanilla. Cathedral church like-ceiling. Room is approximately 20x20. Seldom entertain on a large scale. Prefer intimate dinners. Unfortunately I'm unable to test them all. I have to get it right the first time. Opinion please:)

Hi Lory, Do you have any photos of the space you can share to get a better idea of what might for you?

The 55" table, if you wish to put a rug under it, will need a rug that is at lease 8 1/2 feet around to allow for chair scoot and sit space. I think you can go even bigger if you want to. What is the style of your place? Would the A&C table that extends work in with your style? Of course, if you don't entertain, you don't need the length but you'd have great work space.

Here are some photos. I'm hoping the landlord will let me replace the fan or remove it altogether.
Ceiling carries all the way across to kitchen.
