Shape comes down to personal preference but round or oval tables are good when you don`t have perfect symmetry in a room as it throws the eye. They are also good for curved sofas or shapely armchairs. Rectangular and square are most practical in social settings if you like to have drinks on the table. They are also easier to dress with accessories. Or go for something more sculptural—then it becomes the focal piece of the room.
Interior designer Penelope August recommends these delightful nesting tables from Stockholm-based design studio Hem and notes that they would work well with sectionals — either as a cluster or separately. According to August the two overlapping circles work well in L-sofa configurations where a single table always seems too far from one side or the other. She notes that they are well priced for being made out of solid oak.
You can consider balancing the other shapes in the room by adding a circular or ovular piece if everything else is rectangular. Rounded pieces are also great with smaller children–no sharp edges. It`s always a balance of not too much of one thing; a mix helps it feel personal and curated.
