Seating for Round Dining Tables

| Molly at James+James

A round dining table can help create a tone of intimacy in your kitchen or dining room. Everyone is on equal ground, so to speak. Since everyone is the same distance from each other, there's no straining to hear convesation at the other end of a long table. Round tables can also pull double duty for family fun - eat dinner, then move straight onto game night!
