In addition to the functionality of a round dining table over an angled one is the feng shui concept of harsh angles and their negative impact. “Poison arrows" come from angles, which shoot out negative energy. When a dining table has no hard corners or angles, this negative impact is minimized or altogether omitted for a much more healthful dining experience.

First, be wary of giving into trends, said Christophe Pourny, a master furniture restorer and the author of "The Furniture Bible," who noted that a good table should last at least five to 10 years. "If you get something too funky, with too many weird details, one day you may wake up and wonder what you were thinking," he said. "Keep it simple and sturdy."

The dining room table is where friends and family come together over a bountiful meal to share stories, trade jokes and catch up. So it's no surprise that many people shop for a table right before the holidays. But before you run out and buy the first thing you fall in love with, you'll need to consider a few factors first.

Dining tables tend to hang around long after you've stopped loving them. They're substantial pieces of furniture, after all, and they don't come cheap; it can seem indulgent to buy a new table when the one you have is in perfectly good order.

Select a dining table made of sturdy stuff. If you want a table to last through years of dinner party wear and tear, choose a table made from a hardwood, such as mahogany, walnut, maple, oak and teak. Tables made from engineered or composite woods, which include plywoods and MDF, are durable and economical but are never as strong as a hardwood.

Settle on a shape that will work in most rooms. Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that have square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating. If you buy a six-seater, eight can usually be accommodated at a pinch — the larger the diameter, the more people can be seated. On the other hand, rectangular tables have limited seating spots due to the position of the table legs and because only one person can be seated at each end.

You can't go wrong with a classic country table. Generally, the country-style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust. They also have an uncomplicated design suitable for most schemes, although, pleasingly, many country tables feature elegantly turned legs that support the tabletop. The only real consideration in buying this style of table is whether to go for an upmarket one, such as a French colonial table, or one with the rustic appeal of an English country farmhouse.

Black is always the new black. If you aren't expecting your table to suffer wear and tear, choose the most sophisticated and elegant table you've always dreamed of owning. Black tables are notoriously tricky, especially if they are veneered, because the smallest scratch will show up. If you are the careful type, however, black is super cool and will always be so.

A rectangular dining table shape is perhaps the most common, and there's a reason for it. A rectangle is possibly the best shape of a dining room table because most dining rooms are also rectangular.
