Round Dining Tables

When faced with the choice between round and square, I always choose the latter. Square corners over round corners, rectangular mirrors over circular mirrors, a long farm table over a round dining table, anything except a circular coffee table – I can go on. But now that we are finally getting around to decorating our dining room, which happens to be perfectly square in it’s layout, I’m developing a serious crush on large, circular dining tables. For someone who loves to entertain, round tables feel far more communal, don’t they? So perhaps, soon enough, I’ll be coming full circle . . .

  1. Advice I’ve received is that everyone who goes for square wishes they picked round… so I’m taking the plunge too. Good luck!
