Recently, the furniture world has embraced the form of the elegant high dining table, which has in turn influenced many a patio dining set. Also known as gathering height and balcony tables, these are raised about half a foot higher than typical tables, or on average 36" high. Chair seats typically measure in at 26 inches, which means more leg room than normal height tables. This unique realm is in between dining table and bar height, so it's not uncomfortably high, but noticeably so. The chairs of a high dining set are specifically designed for convenience, and are supposedly easier to get into and out of than are barstools. There are even some chairs which swivel to accommodate. The resulting feeling can either be more formal than a normal table, or more akin to bar-side dining, depending on the surrounding ambience of the décor and the occasion itself. The high patio dining set also gives a more modern look, but is useful in certain spots where a good view is to be enjoyed, as over a tall fence or wall. It would not however be ideal in areas that are already adequately elevated, like roof decks and could give users the adverse effect of feeling too high up. For indoors, balcony tables look great in cathedral ceiling and loft spaces.
The average dining and writing table, the kind build for basically as long as tables have been around, in Western Europe at least all measure around 28 to 30 inches high. The average height for many a table is exactly 29 inches. The chairs then sit proportionate, with typical seats measuring 11" to 13" lower. The normal allowance for leg room is about 24 inches, and 12 inches of that should be reserved for knee clearance.
