We will lightly touch base where each of these dining table shapes looks best and how many people can sit around it, to help you further understand and ease your decision. 

Now, everyone loves a round table because it exhumes warmth and closeness. This is because round dining tables take up less space than any other shapes of dining tables. They are perfect for small apartments where rooms may be limited. It is crucial to not place a round table in rectangular rooms, trust us it will not look good. Because of their round edges, round tables look best in the center of a square room instead. 

Rectangular tables are long in length and short in width so they are best to be placed in rectangular rooms. They do not work well inside a square room since it’ll feel cramped and oversized. Many people do not favor oval-shaped dining tables because they don’t know how to style them, but that is because oval-shaped tables look best in modern and contemporary spaces. Oval tables are like a cousin of the square table, they are long and short in width therefore they too fit well in rectangular rooms. 

Lastly, square tables are also small and look best in small spaces just like the round table. So square tables look best in square rooms. And last but certainly not least we have the freeform table. Freeform tables are exactly what you think they are, they come in various irregular shapes and sizes so they fit best in large spaces.
