Dinner, cards, blogging...

All good things to do at a great round dining table, like this one from dosgallos.com. (Yes, I'm still obsessed with round dining tables) This is the 60", shown in a medium mahogany, lightly distressed finish. It comes in a number of other finishes, including a black which I really like, and a 72" size that would be perfect in my dining room. Does anyone know anything about Dos Gallos?

I don't know a thing but I do like round tables (although the only ones at Linderhof are outside!) -- for you can always squeeze "just one more" around them and everyone can see everyone to talk to at dinner parties! If you have 8 or more with a rectangular table you really have two dinner parties! And yes, the 72" would be better -- the bigger the better with a round table.

I do like the style although I personally would favor the wood over black -- but perhaps in your house, the black would fit in as well or better than the mahogany.

If you like it, I say "go for it"!!!

i love the table! i like the darker wood, but i guess it all depends on the rest of the colors you are going with in the space.

I know nothing about them other than they seem to have been around forever and like to feature roosters in their advertising.

LOVE the table!

Agree with everyone else, LOVE the table. I've always preferred round but 72"? Holy shit, David, that's a helluva table. Chairs will be a wonderful challenge; how about these? http://www.1stdibs.com/furniture_item_detail.php?id=451980

Those are great Chris, I don't think Dunbar made anything I don't like. I think they'd be even hotter taller, as counter or bar stools.

Tell me if you think this is crazy for around this (or a similar) table. 4 upholstered wing chairs. A simplified more modern wing, but that idea. And then 4 wood side chairs to fill in for larger gatherings. For some reason I'm kind of fixated on two different chairs.

David, a great idea to mix it up. A table that large would swallow four regular chairs but wingbacks could hold their own. West Elm was doing a terrific modern wingback (http://tinyurl.com/27vdjo5) but I see it's been discontinued; maybe call around and see if you can pick up some floor models.

Rattan chairs from pottery barn would be great too.
