Now, back to my search for a new dining table. The rectangle shape had been perfect in above dining room. But now, in our smaller, and square shape area, it just did not work.I guess we knew that from the minute we bought the house. I searched the usual sources… the catalogues and outlets on line. I considered a table that had been in my father’s family, but it needed A LOT of work and was/is sitting in Boston. Just didn’t seem worth it.
I have always loved round dining tables. Always. And I had never had one. So this was my chance! I wanted one with four legs, not a pedestal base. Well, that was not to be. We soon realized that having legs would be very limiting in our seating arrangement. This is not a huge room. And, we certainly would need an extension leaf for any new table.
