Generally, the length of time any one person can sit comfortably on a dining chair is three to four hours less if the chair has no padding. Your chairs may already come with a fixed upholstered seat cushion; if not, having a detachable cushion made is not difficult. The insert should be firm and generous, as this not only will enhance the structure of the cushion but will keep your friends and family from visiting the chiropractor.
Just as with a rectangular or square table, measure your space and apply the same chair measurements. Allow 26 inches per person for elbow room on a three- to six-seater and 24 inches for six or more.
Once you know how long your table can be, you can then work out how many can comfortably sit around it. Allow at least 24 inches of elbow room for each guest.
