How many people will fit at my table? This is determined by several factors like table size and shape, chair width, table leg placement, tabletop overhang, etc. You’ll need to consider all these things, but here’s a general breakdown of table sizes and corresponding seating capacities:
- We generally recommend allowing 24 inches of space per person seated at your table. You can go less, but it starts getting tight.
- Allow a minimum of 2 inches (tight) to 6+ inches (roomy) between chairs
- Consider placement of table legs and overhang (distance from tabletop edge to the legs or table base) when determining seating capacity and chair placement
Round tables make good use of space, especially in smaller spots, and allow for easy group conversation.
No corners also makes it easy to pull up another seat.
Rectangular tables shape also fits the shape and flow of most rooms and can be placed connecting to each other.
60" diameter round tables seat 6 - 8 (tight) - we currently have 12+ in inventory
5 foot (60" length, 36" width) rectangular tables seat 4 - 8 (tight and or end seating) - we currently have 80+ in inventory
