How many chairs fit my table
Our contemporary glass-topped dining tables come in a variety of shapes and sizes Futureglass Table range, so there is no simple answer. It also depends on whether you prefer your meals to be formal or informal - people generally require less room for an informal occasion.
As a starting point, a 1500 diameter glass dining table would comfortably seat eight people, but if necessary, you could fit ten or even twelve people around a glass-topped table of that diameter.
The type of chair also affects the seating capacity of glass-topped dining tables. Chairs without arms are generally narrower, while chairs with arms vary greatly in width. If you have smaller style chairs, chairs with straight or reclined backs, or chairs with/without castors, this can also affect the capacity. Ask your Futureglass retailer to send us a CAD file from the manufacturer and we can show a layout of your glass-topped dining table with the chairs in situ around the table.
One way to estimate the size of glass dining table top you need is to set out your chairs in a typical seating arrangement and then measure the space required within the seating area.
