When done right, a round table can be so elegant. True, they can be a bit trickier — especially in the case of dining tables — because they can't be pushed into a compact space and you can only seat so many people at them. Recently, we've noticed round dining tables, side tables, and stools that come with a bit extra — sculptural, column-like bases. The look is super modern and arty and we fully approve! Check out these picks:

CB2 Cypher Black Marble Dining Table, $1,899

We look at this CB2 dining table and between that black marble top and brass bottom it just says "money" to us.

Kartell Colonna Stool, $293

Italian classic Kartell has this stool (or table). We like the red, but it also comes in a variety of punchy hues.

West Elm Hera Round Dining Table, $420

Out of all the major retailers, West Elm has given the most thought to this trend, offering several pieces with accordion-like bases. This white table works great in a dining room but would also make a dramatic statement in a foyer (if you're so lucky).

Horchow Cosmo Marble Coffee Table, $2,024.25

Add some glamour to your living room with this gilded and scalloped coffee table.

This is a pretty pricey garden stool. But, hey, if you got the money to spend, go for it.
