Il Fornaio - Carmel-by-the-Sea
A dinner with the family about 10 years ago while on vacation in Carmel was especially memorable because of this table.  There were 6 of us gathered around this table, and we could see and talk to each other easily.  The warm light above the table (reflected on the table top in the photo) was like a fireplace and the oval table gathered us together into a communal hug.  After all these years  I still remember this table.  Visiting this restaurant again after ten years, I immediately looked for the table.  It was still there in the same spot.  We sat near it.  After a while another family sat down at "our" table and had their own special dinner.

Shapes and forms do affect us.
