What Houzzers are commenting on:
Round tables were first used to create a sense of equality among dining guests. This was the purpose behind the Knights of the Round Table. It was so different and distinct from the traditional elevated head table of the Middle Ages. The king and queen essentially sat in their thrones at the heads of the table. To create a sense of brotherhood the Knights of the Round Table did not distinguish one "head" of the table. Thus, all of the chairs should be the same. Round tables are also ideal for conversation and fit better in smaller dining rooms.
