Café table tops and bases
Suppliers of café furniture offer table tops and bases separately; this gives much greater choice. We find that square tops are more popular than round, both because they are a better shape for place settings and because they can be pushed together to make larger tables. 70cm square is our most popular table top size. Often cafe choose a big table for a corner, to allow big groupings and to make the tops less uniform - whilst still matching materials.
Table bases come in 'families', meaning that whatever size tops you choose, there should always be an appropriate base.
How many covers?
We reckon that The Metric Handbook gets this about right, suggesting each diner requires an area between 1 and 2 square metres - cafés tend to be nearer the bottom end of this range.
