Huey Lewis said it best: it’s hip to be square. In particular, today’s roundup of square dining tables brings together just under a dozen perfectly symmetrical spots to tuck into for… well, a square meal. A square table doesn’t necessarily limit seating arrangements to parties of four, however; several of the elements in today’s series offer comfortable seating for up to eight, with seats pulled together in couples. Offering a slightly more democratic opportunity for conversation, there’s no longer a “head of the table” in settings like this — everything is unilateral. Now that’s modern, and actually not very square at all.
