Setting a square dining room table

11 years ago

We have a very informal home with no formal or separate dining room - an open floor plan.

Our dining room table (which is our only dining table), is square and seats 8. I have the hardest time of deciding on setting placement, as when I use placemats, the table appears to be very cramped.

I don't particularly care for table cloths, and am baffled by how to arrange one or more table runners.

Any ideas and photos you can share for setting a square table for 8 would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
