Keep in mind that the table should be in proportion to your dining room size. Since you are the host, it is important for you guests to sit comfortably and have free space to walk around. Try to leave a maximum of 42 to 48 inches and a minimum of 36 inches between your tables and the walls. About two feet of eating space is required for a person to eat comfortably. When sitting at the table try to have at least 30 to 36 inches from your knee to the back of the chair.

Although it can be unfair to pair traditional chairs with a contemporary table, and vice versa, try to find pieces that share a common design element. If the table has a sinuous cabriole leg, look for a chair with the same line in the leg or back, or choose upholstery with swirls on it. If the table is square or rectangular, look for chairs with a square or rectangular seat but a dining table set with curvy edges and quadrilateral corners include additional sophistication to the style. A round table that's big enough to seat 10 probably won't fit in your dining room, and opposing guests will be so far away it will defeat the whole purpose of buying a round table.
