One drawback of a round table is that in order to accommodate more seats the table often need to be quite large. An eight-seater table needs to be at least 175cm in diameter and when chairs are added around it, the dining sets need to be at least 215cm in diameter. Thus the setting consumes a lot of space that most dining room is not able to. In order to maintain a round and organic shape, which is an attractive feature of the Umu table while accommodating for a sitting capacity, the table needs to made in an oval shape.

Rest assured, the oval Umu table is crafted from solid a-grade teak, which makes is 100% outdoor and can be left in the full sun and pouring rain without any maintenance.
