There are certain questions that come up over and over; so I thought I would spend some time trying to provide answers to the most common.  I hope they are helpful to you.

So here are some general seating rules. Please know that the configuration and size of the legs will affect these numbers.

• If rectangular, and the table length is 5 feet: sits 4-6 comfortably; if it’s 5 feet round, up to 8 people comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 6 feet: sits 6-8 comfortably; if it’s 6 feet round: up to 10 people comfortably (if you use banquet chairs, you can squeeze 12 people);

• If rectangular, and the table length is 7 feet: sits 8 very comfortably; if it’s 7 feet round: 9-11 people comfortably;

• If rectangular and the table length is 8 feet: sits 8 very comfortably; if it’s 8 feet round, up to 12 people comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 9 feet: sits 10 comfortably; if it’s 9 feet round: up to 14 people comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 10 feet: sits 10 comfortably; if it’s 10 feet round, up to 15 people comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 11 feet: sits 10 very comfortably and 12 comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 12 feet: sits up to 12 very comfortably and up to 14 with narrower chairs;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 13 feet: sits 12-14 comfortably;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 14-15 feet: sits 14 very comfortably and 16 if need be;

• If rectangular, and the table length is 16 feet: sits 16 very comfortably and 18 if need be.

If your table is bigger than that I pray that it came with a chef  ’cause you’re gonna need one!

I can’t remember where I got this image. If it is yours please let me know so I may give proper credit.
