Small Oval Dining Tables

Updated

We all know the best thing about oval dining tables is that their rounded corners create the illusion that they occupy less space. But they also create a unique visual interest and their curves allow for a nice contrast to the right angles and angular lines of other furnishings in the room. An oval dining table creates a feeling of inclusion at the table and easily involves everyone seated there in conversation. This shape of dining table is perfect for smaller spaces.

Go glam with this marble and gold mid-century modern small oval table. The black marble top features light veining and contributes to the luxurious feel of the table.

Buying Guide

The best shape for your dining table depends on your available space and the main designated function of the table.

Rectangular dining tables are the most versatile, irrespective of the shape of your room. They fit easily into most rooms and allow for ease of movement. If you are short on space, simply push it up against a wall when not in use.  In terms of function, they are very versatile and are great for formal dinner as well as for doing homework with your kids. 

Round dining tables are just as versatile and work in any size or shape of the dining room. However, it is best suited to informal dining. 

Square dining tables are great for rooms with limited space and add symmetry and balance. 

A small oval dining table combines a round table's intimacy with the linear layout of a rectangular table, resulting in a table that breaks up angular lines and softens the scheme.

If you're considering using a bench with your dining table, then you're making a good choice for a few reasons. Benches are seen as more comfortable by lots of people because they seat more people and you can be seated closer to each other, making the setting more intimate and allowing easier interaction.

If you're wondering if you can match a bench with your small oval dining table, you most certainly can. In fact, a bench is often more practical than individual chairs that can sometimes make space feel smaller and more cluttered.

On the other hand, the bench introduces a banquette seating style instead and is great if you want to maximize seating space and still create a dining area with simplistic style.
