Round Robin

As you may remember, we originally wanted to buy a round dining table for the Bachelor Pad but decided to keep the exisiting dining table to save money. That still doesn’t mean that I don’t notice every time I see a fabulous round or oblong table. I especially love modern tables paired with antique or vintage chairs and also the reverse of antique tables with modern chairs. It looks so interesting, modern and personal. Enjoy!

    I love a round dining table! It’s so much friendlier.

    Love the chairs in the first photo.

    I think a round dining table is so lovely, I have a beautiful antique one I’m using right now…it makes meals and get togethers so nice. I especially love the brown room with the leopard chairs and the round black table…may I ask where you found that picture?

    if the architecture of the room allows, i always prefer a round table. really like the cluster of hanging fixtures in the 3rd to last photo, too.

    happy fall, btw- i hope it is long and spectacular for you this year!

    What a chic round-up. You must have some enormous file of fabulousness. Round tables are better for conversation and are quintessential to a coveted NY Social Set.

    i love the organic shape of a circle. very inviting, leading one person sitting at the table to another and so on. i also love love love the use of art in many of these rooms. art seems to energize, while at the same time keeps a space sort of grounded. fabulous.

    Last Christmas I picked up a floor sample round black table at Pottery Barn – imperfect, but affordable. It ABSOLUTELY makes my dining room….

    Every one of these pictures is perfection–especially the first. How I wish I had an 18th Century Portrait to hang above my own dining table.

    brilliant a-
    you can find a vintage portrait or have one of you done in an 18th cent style to provide dinner conversation while dining round robin.

    Thanks for all the great comments! The first photo is from Australian Vogue Living and was designed by Cameron Kimber. He doesn’t have a website yet unfortunately.

    The photo with the leopard chairs is of a room designed by Pascal Boyer. He has an amazing gallery/shop on West 22nd Street.

    Happy Dining Everyone!

    VERY nice round-up! I am searching for the perfect (and affordable at least for me) round table right now. I think I have found it! My criteria was that it had to be 60″ diam. and extend to seat 10 (and be affordable). Not easy to find I have to say. Especially the affordable part! But these photos are very inspirational and I will reference them for “decor” reasons. Great!

    Great, great post. I have a rectangular dining room table, but I wish I had bought a round table for my kitchen eat-in area. Instead, I bought a casual rectangular table that has two leaves, which means that we can always eat in the casual area, even if we have a lot of guests. In my next house, I would like to buy a round casual table that seats exactly 6; when we have more than 6 (which is most of the time when we have guests, as I have 3 children), then we will be forced to eat in the dining room. That is a good thing!
