When people sit around that automatically creates more intimate and pleasant atmosphere.
In this article the dining table isn’t necessarily the table that's in the dining space. It can stand in a kitchen, guest room or, as you’ll see in one of the examples, in porch. The essence is that it’s round and people eat there.
The round table, of course, takes more space, as no its part can be fended off the wall, but now there’re tables of different diameters, therefore, it’s not necessary to resist having a wish to have a table. Probably nobody would deny that oval tables look much cozier. It is as it is – people sit around that automatically creates more intimate and pleasant atmosphere and there aren’t very big distances among them, therefore, communication is more usual and pleasant.
In addition, the round dining table with the chairs placed around and the hanging lamp above look very nice. Most usually that is the nicest place at least for me.
