A table which you don't normally see in a dining room is probably a Cocktail or Coffee Table. This is where you place your drinks while in the living room entertaining a guest. When you're spending your weekend watching tv, a cocktail table is probably where your drinks and quick meals go. It's also smaller than the usual dining table and it comes with rollers so you get to bring it wherever you want. And yes, most people think this is the best type of table there is.
In today's open floor plans, the size of your dining table sets isn't that important. But if you have a formal dining room that is walled off from the rest of your home, size matters. More than one homeowner has found the dining table sets of their dreams, only to find that it won't fit in the space they have available. The result is a dining room that families and friends rarely dine in because it's just too crowded.
Smaller scaled dining tables are another alternative to think about, especially if there are only two of you in your current living situation. Easy to push aside when extra space is needed and good for sipping on your cup of coffee while reading the morning paper, or even for enjoying an intimate dinner, small-scale dining tables are an ideal cozy alternative. An interesting tidbit to mull over if you happen to get a smaller table with a round table top - you won't run into any sharp corners, which goes to show you how much I truly appreciate mine.
