Seating Guide: 60″ vs. 72″ Round French Country Dining Table

There’s no doubt—a large round dining table welcomes guests to sit and linger for conversation and food. But, how many people can you seat around 72″ Round Dining Table vs. a 60″ Round Dining Table? Which table is the best size for your crowd?

Seating guide for the 72″ round dining table:
Our 72″ round pedestal dining table seats eight people comfortably with 20+” wide chairs. Some generous 20″ width chair styles include; Country French Ladderbacks, and Wheatback Chairs.  You can squeeze in two additional chairs to seat 10 guests in a pinch, but ideally eight chairs fit perfectly with wider width chair seats. If you decide to go with a 18″ width chair seat, i.e. French Country Ladderback or the Paysanne Chair, then 10 chairs would work fine. Tip: Be sure to measure your chair widths to choose the appropriate number of chairs.
