What shape dining table would accommodate the maximum number of people? Does a corner sofa fit in the living room? Could we have a small low TV stand in the room? Thank you so much!”

Our recommendations
The amount of people that can be seated at each table depends on the shape and size of the dining table. The size and shape of the table must follow the shape of the room, a square or round table looks best in a room with equal dimensions, while the long tables work best in rectangular rooms.
