Large round or square tables for the living room or the office: here’s how to choose them following Bontempi Casa advices.

Welcoming creativity and the pleasure of sharing: that’s why large tables are here. They are crucial pieces of furniture and steal the scene thanks to their generous volumes and modern design that catch the eye with their originality and elegance. Fixed or extendable, large tables evoke convivial atmospheres, they make us think of big families and the pleasure to invite friends home, but they are also good for other uses and become multi-functional tables as well. In order to give value to these pieces, they need to be placed in the middle of the room, while decorating the main wall in the foreground with complements such as modern mirrors, a storage unit, a design bookcase or a nice wallpaper. To give the right light to the space, you may need more light spots and suspension lamps to distribute along the table. Last but not least, who loves furnishing the house should be focusing on the chairs to match the table as well, they must be chosen in perfect harmony with the design and materials of large tables.

Large tables for the office

Wood makes the environment warmer and more welcoming, thanks to its natural look. Big wooden tables, however, are also perfect pieces of furniture to highlight the charisma of a work environment furnished with taste and an eye for details. In the middle of a meeting room, big tables become silent (but not invisible) protagonists of important meetings and brainstorming with colleagues.

The wood knots visible on the surface, the outer side edge that maintains the original shape of the tree trunk and the slight chromatic variations underline the authenticity and uniqueness of these large solid wood tables. Even the matching chairs have a solid wood structure and take up the solid and enveloping structure of the table.

Large round tables for the lunchroom 

Ideal for the dining room, the large round tables are the space-saving solution that perfectly combines the pleasure of conviviality with the needs of functional and modern furnishings. Without sharp corners, not only do they look more airy and lighter, but they also leave more freedom of movement in the surrounding space. Choosing models with a central base instead of the legs along the perimeter, then, any obstacles for the seats are eliminated – and it is easier to add a seat to the table when needed.
