I need a big dinner table to put in my house. Not because I need to feed a lot of people. I will use it for more than just eating. It will probably have my laptop(s) and tablet and books stacked on it. I will do some of my work from here. I will surround it with traditional dining chairs but also a comfortable club chair for long reading sessions. It will hold my big cup of coffee. It will seat guests comfortably for breakfast, lunch or dinner. on Love this furniture
