All beautiful and great ideas. Not wanting to sound negative, but just think twice about the material you choose if you have a dog that sheds. Dog fur embedded into your column gives a totally different look than the one you think you're getting! Most vacuum cleaners are unable to cope with round columns.

I have also seen a round banquette created around a column with living room seating to one side and the dining table to the other side.
