Searching for a Round Dining Table

Now that our kitchen is almost done, my eyes have been wandering over to the dining room. We have way too much furniture crammed in the 13×13 room, that’s it’s high time we downsize.  I’m looking for a round or oval table around 60-65″ wide. I’d love to be able to have six chairs and Evie’s tripp trapp all fit comfortably.

I’ve been thinking about this 60″ round arch table from West Elm (which is 15% off right now!). It looks nice in person, though I’d probably end up painting it or faux liming the finish to work better with my new chairs.

I am going to check out this vintage Saarinen style oval table today. I would love to buy a real vintage Saarinen, but the rounds are too small and the oval tops are way too long. This one has the perfect dimensions (60×45″), but I’m a little nervous about the thickness of the table top. I want sleek here, like the original. I’ll let you guys know how it goes!

And in the DREAM table category, I would give anything for one of these Robsjohn-Gibbings for Widdicomb arch tables.

The dimensions are spot-on perfect and I could not love the design more (arches and octagons!?). If you see one at auction, please please please let me know!

Do you know of any other amazing round tables on the market right now? I’m itching to make some process here and would be willing to just buy something as a place holder. Not my favorite design approach, but I’m going a little crazy here. :)

  1. Thanks for post I like it me also share with you some tips hope you Hand designed furniture is built to fit your space. Traditional cabinets are built to standardized sizes and homeowners with rooms that have unusual angles have a hard time finding pieces that fit their space while improving the function of the space.Handmade Furniture

  3. Hi Jenny!!

    I am a long time reader, so oddly enough, I feel like you are one of my friends! I pretty much stalk Craigs List daily, sending my friends the good stuff, begging them to buy it and let me redo it for them. So being that we are friends even though you don't know it, I found this awesome table. It's a little smaller than you are looking for, but too gorgeous not to share! If it were me I'd haggle my way out of the hutch and chairs (MCM overload=retro kitschy). Minor detail: I live in Dallas. Haha so that makes this info pretty useless!! Oh well! Enjoy my dear!!

  4. Most of the dining tables that I saw have round shape. But some says that cornered tables are better specially if we have small space. We know that not only the space have to be considered in choosing the right dining table. We have to be consider also our budget.
