When it comes to furnishing a small space, often the dining room gets short shrift. It is, after all, quite possible to eat dinner while sitting on the couch. But there's also something very grown-up and very pleasing about sitting down to a meal at an actual dining table, whether by yourself of with friends. If you're living in a little space and need a little table to match, look no further than this list of 12 tables which are no bigger than 36".
