The table is one of the pieces of star of the furniture. Traditionally, it has been a piece of furniture slope clearly functionalas what we used in the kitchen, in the office, in the dining room, in the garden or in other spaces that need high surfaces and flat on that to be able to work or support various objects.

Input, you have three major ways in which we can categorise them: round tables, square tables and rectangular tables. Your choice should depend on space we need to locate them, of capacity or number of guests who are going to use, the balance between design and functionality you want to achieve, or other factors, more social to keep in mind, as the bet that we do in terms of communication.
