We have over thirty chair designs and a huge selection of tables to choose. Most tables come in the traditional 30” dining height. However, many tables are now available in a 36” counter height and a 42” bar height. All chairs and tables are made of solid wood. These pieces showcase traditional craftsmanship in pieces that can be passed down through the generations.

Guidelines for dining tables and chairs:
This is a helpful tool to for you to estimate how many people can sit around a table:
Rectangle dining tables
The old saying goes “you need one foot for every hungry soul.” If your table is 72” long, 6 people should fit around it. This size allows 1 foot for both heads of the table and 4 feet down each side for 2 people on a side. Some tables can fit more or less than others depending on the style and the bases verses legs, children verses adults and so forth.
Round dining tables
Round dining tables are a little more challenging than rectangular tables. Here is a helpful tool to estimate. Take the diameter of the table and divide it by 8. If you take a 36″ diameter table and divide 36 by 8, you come up with 4.5. You can sit 4 people around it. But it is a tight fit and requires smaller width chairs. A 42” round table, you can seat 5 people around it and a 48″ diameter table can seat 6 people. These estimates will vary depending on the sizes of people and the width of the chairs.
- Traditional dining tables are 30″ high and need a seat height around 18”.
- Counter height tables are very popular now. They are 36″ high and need a seat height of 24”.
- Bar height tables are 42″ high and need a seat height of 30”.
- On solid top tables, the grain runs the length of the table.
- On extendable tables that use extension leafs, the grain runs the width of the table.
