When designing your conference table, there are several factors to consider.
How many chairs will there be? With a Rectangular or similar table, the placement of the pedestals will influence the seating on the long side of the top.

At 12.5′ we would use 2 pedestals placed 87-90″ apart, depending on whether the top is a Rectangle or Boat shape top, and place 5 chairs on each side. Read more
