No matter what shape you select for a table, you should allow at least three feet between the table edge and an obstruction just like a server or wall. This gives sufficient space for individuals to move throughout the table, and in and out using their seats. Alternatively, more than six feet remaining between one wall or obstruction and the table means that the set is too small.
If you want a dining table with options, purchase one with a leaf so you can accommodate varying amounts of guests. Take into account that to ensure visitors won't be bumping elbows using their fellow dinner guests, each individual needs about two feet of eating space (typically the table manufacturer will be able to recommend the amount of men and women that can comfortably sit at the table).
