How to choose your ideal table

The two main factors that should determine the shape of your dining room table should be the shape and size of your dining room area and the number of people who will normally be seated around the dining table. You will find that certain shapes lend themselves better to certain conditions. When you combine the two, a flow is created that makes the space work and look better. 

According to the size of the dining room

When you choose furniture for your home, the availability of space must be studied. Inspect the size of your dining room or open kitchen area where your dining room set will reside. This will give you an idea of ​​the dimensions you will need. Ideally, the distance between the edge of your dining table set and the wall, or any other furniture, should be around 90cm. This will allow you to have enough room to move your chair and enough room to walk around the table.

How many people do you want to seat? How do you use the dining table? For example, when you eat, are there only plates and cutlery, or will you also have many plates to serve? Each person needs about 60 cm of space to eat, and a minimum of 80 cm between the table and what is behind it (furniture, wall ...), but in this case more is better. If you don't have enough room for a large dining table, consider a extending table.

The perfect shape

Let your room decide. The rectangular tables They are great for busy dining areas and also great for bench seating. They also offer a lot of space because you can use all 4 sides. Round or oval tables generally require a larger room, but they work well to balance a square room and often allow more people to sit around them. The square tables they are good for conversation as they are all facing each other.

The size of the dining room influences the shape and dimension of the table. If you have a small space, a square dining table 4 seats from 90 to 100 cm or one round dining table diameter 90 to 120 cm will prevent the space from looking cramped.

Rectangular, oval or circular shaped dining tables are ideal for more formal spaces, the latter being better suited to classic styles. If you have enough room for circulation flow, a 180cm long table will be an ideal choice to accommodate six people, while a rectangular table 240 cm long it can comfortably accommodate eight people. 

Material and finishes

Choosing a high-quality, durable material such as solid oak is directly related to the long-term maintenance of your dining table. If you choose a wooden dining table, always opt for hard woods such as oak.

If you have children or a dining table that multitasks as a desk, choose a table made of durable material such as sturdy, solid wood.
All of our solid oak dining tables are treated with tung oil.                                                                     


Before making the purchase, consider how you use your dining table. For example, if the dining table is constantly used by the whole family, choose a medium to large size table made of a strong and durable material such as oak.

A good option is dining tables with folding leaves or extensible, where the tabletop can be extended according to your requirements.



When it comes to choosing your dining table, you can also combine seating options with a booth and different chairs. Adding a bench to our dining table set adds a fresh and modern touch.

Dining style

Having a dining room of one style or another does not condition the possibility of having a solid wood dining table since all the well-combined elements will give us a style in harmony.
The Scandinavian style tables have different designs with more rustic, modern, classic or contemporary trends.

The Nordic style is found in our dining tables, being elegant, linear, minimalist pieces, aspects that give a lighter feeling to this piece that will stand out in your dining room. The boards are thinner, the legs either straight or at an angle but thin. An example of this is our model table France.

The country style is characterized by being visually heavy. The dining tables have large legs, as do the tops that compose them. And details, like those of our table Maurice 3, make them have a distinctive touch.
