The square table is not the only solution for a smaller or square-shaped room. A round dining table is another possibility, and it may very well be the best shape for small gatherings: everyone can see everyone else, conversations are easier to carry on, and the setting feels cozier and more intimate.

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.

This isn't necessarily the norm in common dining table options these days, but a feng shui dining table will be round rather than square or rectangular. This is because a round dining table provides a level of equality – everyone seated around the table is no more or less than everyone else seated around that same table (as opposed to the “head" of a rectangular table). Eye contact and conversation are improved with a round dining table.

How do you know which dining table shape is right for you? There's more to it than preferring one shape over the other. We're not saying your preference for one shape over another doesn't count, but there are a couple of other things to keep in mind too. Namely, the shape of your dining room or dining area and how large a group you usually seat around your dining table.

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."

Feng shui balances all the five elements in all spaces, but it leans more heavily toward wood pieces as grounding and stabilizing, both aesthetically and psychologically. (The same is true for a wood headboard in the bedroom.) A high quality wooden dining room is the preferred material for a feng shui dining table, although using a table that is in keeping with the rest of the dining room's style is important. Make sure that the dining table is of high quality wood.

Keep in mind that a round table is not ideal for larger gatherings. A large round table means that, while you can still see others, they seem far away, and you may have to shout across the table to be heard. Besides, most dining rooms aren't large enough to accommodate very large round dining tables.

Consider a designer pack-and-go dining table. Plywood is lightweight and durable, and a plywood table can be flat-packed and assembled as needed at home. Your dining table then can be packed up and moved as necessary. Plus it works well in a home with modern Nordic or contemporary Asian style.

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.
