Oval-Shaped Dining Tables Are Space Efficient As Well As Distinctively Different
Since oval dining tables can accommodate two or more guests at each round end, they can help restaurateurs maximize revenue per square foot. Not only that, but oval-shaped tables are rather unusual. In fact, they’re so rare that they tend to capture the attention of patrons. They signal a more casual atmosphere and because no one seated at an oval table sits perpendicular to another guest, oval tables are superior when it comes to encouraging diners to actively engage with one another.
John Boos Makes These Oval-Shaped Butcher Block Dining Table Tops
The very first Boos Block was made more than a century ago, in 1887. Interestingly, those early blocks were made for, and used by, blacksmiths, not butchers. It was only later that both John Boos and butcher shops realized these sturdy, resilient block surfaces were ideal for butchers’ tasks, as well. Meat butchers and Boos himself all saw that these massive wooden blocks could just as readily absorb blows from sharp and heavy meat cleavers as they could from sledge hammers banging on forged steel.
For Maximum Flexibility, Consider an Oval Dining Table with Drop Leaves
The benefit of the drop-leaf-oval table should be apparent. It gives the proprietor, host or hostess the option of setting up the table to maximize its utility and/or to accommodate patrons’ preferences. It’s an easy way for you to quickly adjust a table’s capacity from 4 to 6 for instance, and just as quickly back again. That’s what makes ovals with drop leaves such a smart choice. Among all the dining room table shapes, drop-leaf oval tables are the ultimate in flexibility
