Good Questions: Suggest a Table for My Kitchen?

I recently painted my kitchen and have been doing some redecorating but have been unable to decide on a table for the nook. I want something small enough that I will be able to utilize the 1930's built-in cabinetry but large enough for two to eat comfortably. Any suggestions for a functional and stylish table would be appreciated. Thanks! Marisa

This space has a ton of potential — you've got great built-in storage, natural light and the walls are painted a fresh pale blue. From the pictures, I think a round table would work best. But first? You will need to declutter and get rid of the bench, the red IKEA shelf, the trashcan and the wine storage. Trying to fit all of these little things and a little table will only make the space more complicated. You don't want to go too small for a table, a round design that seats 4 should be perfect (but of course measure your space!)

Now for a table! I would love to see a Platner table in this space (but fully realize this is a major expense!). Who has suggestions?
