Square Tables (‘fangzhou’) were used in the Chinese home as dressing tables, for dining, for playing games and many other activities. They were often stored against a wall and pulled into the middle of a room when required. The Chinese believed the square shaped table to be ideal for eating as it was more sociable, allowing diners to sit in close proximity. The Western rectangular or oval shaped table was never adopted. The larger of these square tables would generally seat eight diners, and so were referred to as ‘Eight Immortals Tables’.
