The light oak table is for 8 people, and an extension leaf can be purchased separately. To add the extension leaf to the dining table, pull the round table apart, and lay in the extension leaf - now you have an oval dining table. A round dining table has many advantages, as it e.g. takes less space than a rectangular dining table, and as more people can sit around it. Furthermore a round table creates more cosiness when guests are gathered around it, as everyone can talk and have eye contact. The dining table includes a maintenance guide.
