Lick How many chairs around your dining table?

If you don't have a dining table (singular) but eat in another seating area, say in the telly room on the sofa, then count the number of seats USED to eat and post that in the poll

If you don't eat at home, eat on the bed or floor or whatever else ... then don't vote

... any other odd numbers, choose option 5 - "3"

There is no 'other' option ... live with it

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

I don't have a dining room therefore I don't have a dining room table. However, I have four chairs around my kitchen table, two at either side.

Is that enough information for you profiling Kurzon?

4. We've got 6, but never needed the rest, so the last two are still in the box in the loft.

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

Yes... that's why I tried not to use the word 'room' as not everyone would have one of those So just your formal dining table, if you don't have one of those, then your eating place (table?) people

Mr R, I already knew that you had a table in your kitchen but just didn't know how many chairs were around it

Mr O, you lard arse ... you should have chosen three or one

Our table has an expanding piece which we haven't used... I think it is in the garage somewhere. There is ample room for people to dine at our table, so can't remember whether we were dumb enough to pay for the extra bit Also, over time, our table has got minor scratches, bumps and perhaps has faded here and there due to sunlight (all adds to character right ) ... so even if we were to put the extra piece on... it's bound to stand out now

Yeah but you chose it as the sole person occupying all THREE seats ... whereas I'm assuming all three seats on the sofa are and can be used to eat in front of say a coffee table +... it would become four if there is an armchair at the one end of the table

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

two, we bought a new one at the beginning of the year, didn't need four seats as we never eat at the table so i said 'lets get a smaller table with only two chairs then we'll have more space'

my good ladies reply was 'you can't get a table with just two chairs!'

of course you can i said unsure whether i was right or not and then, next minute on the telly a shot in somebodies house at a small two seater table, hurrah!! and even better we got one from a furniture shop next door to the alfa dealers so guess where i sneaked off to

Hurrah to my friends and hearty rasberries to mine enemies!

Yeah, ours doesn't expand, but it's big enough for 6. To be honest, this is one of the pieces of furniture we bought quite naively, not realising how much it'd fill up the space. It's far too big for the room, as is our massive 3-piece suite, and a massive wardrobe was, but I accidentally destroyed it the other day while taking it apart Still. One less bit of furniture to move, eh?
Hopefully, when we move house in the near (hopefully again) future, it'll all be the right size

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

6 in the dining room which stretches to 8 and 6 in the kitchen where we normally nosebag. Trouble is kitchen is bigger than dining room so bigger family gatherings tend to nosh-up in the kitchen where we shove on an old kiddies snooker table and cover the lot with a large "effoff" size table cloth.

We also have a little place near Rome and (surprise, surprise) the biggest room in the place is the dining room - they do an awfull lot of eating in Italy you know! . It'll seat 12 with ease but that's no big deal over there, eveything to do with food comes in 12s!

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

Kurty

Profiling are you

We have kitchen table (horrible, couse I have painted it ) and four chairs (which I have also painted, and they're horrible also ) ...

But I would like to have 6 chairs ... all new ... and new kitchen table I hate the old one, but new costs way too much (I have very expensive taste )

You like to know what other chairs we might have Kurty

Re: How many chairs around your dining table?

Not surprised GC with all the munching on food and drinking of tea you do all day long ... you probably have a single chair and table just for you, yourself and U
