What comes immediately to your mind when you imagine a round table? Is it the story of legendary King Arthur with the Knights of the Round Table? or the round table conferences of the UN? Well, in the case of Arthurian legend, the round table was to indicate equality at the table. Everyone at the table was of equal stature; therefore, there could be equal discussion around the table.
Historically, the central idea behind the round table of the Arthurian legend was to ensure that no one person should be given more importance in accordance with their position at the table than any other.
Likewise, many benefits stood the test of time to date when it comes to the round dining table. It implies that there is no ‘head of the table.’ It provides equal spacing and equal opportunity for everyone to participate in the conversation, with a shared center. Having a round dining table can instantly impact the social dynamic around the dinner table.
Though, of course, the parents still get the joy of being able to tell their kids to stop playing with their food or eat their veggies first. However, these days, there’s a lot more of “so how was school?” and “any plans for the weekend?” going on.
Historically, there used to be traditional rectangular dining tables set, with the head of the household at the very head of the table to show their authority, as they can easily look down upon the length of the table at their family and/or guests.
At dinner parties, guests would be seated strategically according to a social standing and authoritarian hierarchy, with the more important guests sitting closer to the head of the table. These days, family dinner time tends to be a bit more casual.
With a paradigm shift in the adoption of a round dining table, families encourage entertainment, allowing the guests to gather around, make eye contact, and participate in conversation more freely. Besides, it makes the space so much more intimate; and, the whole table can be involved in the same conversation.
