Traditional Coffee Tables as Informal Dining

Living Square

A square table is usually a good fit for square rooms, depending on traffic flow through your home. Big enough to hold a festive meal, finish up homework, or as a decorative centerpiece to the room, it can also work well placed against a wall if fewer seating spaces are needed.
