How to measure
A diner will need 60 cm length on a dining table.
For example if you want to seat 8 at a rectangle dining table
3 x 60 cm per person =180 cm long plus 60 for the person at the end  of the table = 240 cm long or to be generous 270 cm 
Do be aware of variables such as the position of  table legs, the size of dining chairs etc. 
We like to allow a metre around the dining table for comfortable pull back of chairs and passing traffic.

Consider carefully the type of median you wish to sit at and the advantage and disadvantages of this median. Our favorite is a wood dining table. Not only is it naturally beautiful, it wears well with time and gets better with age.
