How to Determine Table Seating Capacity for Table Top Sizes

 

 

Each table style and size has varying seating capacities.  As a rough/general rule, every 24″ of table edge length will accommodate one chair.  For example, a 42 x 72″ table will accommodate 8 chairs.  One on each end (42″/24″ = 1.75, one chair)  and three on each side (72″/24″ = 3, three chairs).  For exceptions to this rule, please read on below.

 

Trestle Tables

 

60” tables can only fit one chair between the trestle legs

 

66” tables – some can fit two chairs between the trestle legs, others only one

 

Product codes that start with CWA will fit one chair
Product codes that start with WPA will fit two chairs
Product codes that start with NWA will fit two chairs

 

72” and longer tables can fit two chairs between the trestle legs.

 

As a general rule trestle legs are usually set in about 18” from the end of the table. Anytime one or more leaves are added to the table the distance from the end of the table to the trestle legs increases as the table halves move apart to make room for the leaves.

 

As another general rule the overhang on the table’s short sides is about 7 to 10 inches from the trestle leg. The base size stays the same for either a 42” wide or 48” wide table top. On the 42” wide top the overhang will be about 7”, on the 48” wide top the overhang will be about 10”.

 

See our Trestle Table Seating Tips post to learn how chairs that overlap the trestle supports can not be fully pushed in under the table when expanded with leaves.

Round Tables

 

 

A 36” round table will take 3 to 4 chairs; with two leaves you have an oval table that can fit 6 chairs

 

A 42” round table will take 4 chairs; with two leaves you have an oval table that can fit 6 chairs

 

A 48” round table will take 4 to 5 chairs; with two leaves you have an oval table that can fit 7 chairs

 

A 54” round table will take 5 to 6 chairs; with two leaves you have an oval table that can fit 8 chairs

 

A 60″ round table will take 6 chairs; with one leaf you can fit 8 chairs

 

A 72″ round table will take 7 to 8 chairs; 72″ tables are available in solid top only, no leaves.

Leg & Pedestal Tables

 

The general rule is two feet per person. So a 72” table will seat 3 people on each side, 1 on each end which comes to 8 chairs.

 

When you add 2 leaves you add 2 more chairs, likewise when you add 4 leaves you add 4 more chairs.

 

For example: a 72” table with 4 leaves goes from 6 people to 10 people around the table.
