Oval. Eero Saarinen’s iconic modern oval dining table This stunning design is made in either a 78-in. (198-cm) length and 47¾-in. (121-cm) width, or a 96-in. (244-cm) length and 54-in. (137-cm) width. In this space the table is paired with Eames molded fiberglass dowel-leg side chairs, which have a footprint of 18½ in. in width and 21 in. in depth each (47 by 53 cm). Oval shapes can sometimes help smaller spaces flow since no one will need to navigate a square corner.
