No matter what shape you select for a dining table, you should allow at least three feet between your table edge and an obstruction just like a server or wall. This gives sufficient space for folks to move around the table, and in and out off their seats. On the other hand, more than six feet remaining between one wall or obstruction and the table means that the set is too small.
Marble is a big investment, but without exception marble dining tables are almost always showstoppers. Tables crafted from quality imported marble are really beautiful. Buy without guilt if you truly fall in love with one - marble's timeless appeal will make it a table that is often popular - but do be aware that a marble tabletop comes with a couple of drawbacks. First, marble tables of any kind are bulky and heavy. Second, they need to be well taken care of, as the marble can crack and stain. To avoid stains, keep carefully the table cleared and clean all the time, covering it with a tablecloth or placemats when red wine and foods that may damage marble are on the menu.
