Decor Trend: Counter height dining tables?

Pin it button big

High-style dining? We started noticing them sporadically awhile back, but the other night, we went to Room & Board and saw almost an entire room filled with them. We're not really sure how we feel about counter height dining tables. Is it weird to be sitting so high for, say, a formal dinner? I suppose in the right context, they could be quite nice, but I guess the question is, what context would that be? Can counter/bar height dining tables work in a home without high ceilings? Are they better in more loft-like or open spaces? What do you guys think? (more after the survey)

Here are some more high dining tables:
Crate and Barrel's wide selection
•Cb2 has the "Indie", "Speakeasy", and the "Bongo".
•DWR has the "Double Teak High Dining table"
•Ikea has the Leksvik bar table

Do any of you have a counter/bar/high dining table, or have eaten on one? How do you like it?
