here is a somewhat good view of my breakfast area, sorry the pic is so dark:
anyway i think a booth style table would be more functional because of the way the breakfast area is set up. from where the picture is taken is the opening of the living room, and from where the girl on the immediate left sits is the walkway to the kitchen, which can be annoying if two people are trying to get through because there is also a bar that sticks out. it may be that my kitchen table & chairs are too big though.
so do you think a booth style table would look good here? and also i went for the light oak because my cabinets are a light oak color. are these good quality tables also? and i have 3 children so whenever we have guests with a 4 seater table there is no extra seats.Answer Question

I think the booth style seating would work well there. Plus, having a long table to work at is kind of nice.
Our breakfast nook table is about the size of yours and the base is metal and I can't stand the metal on the tile. I don't have a rug underneath it and I can't wait to find a different / better table for that area. I like the top of our table but can't stand the base and the chairs. I keep trying to roll it out of the house on Yard Sale days, but DH always stops me and tells me that we have to have somewhere to eat.

Only concern I would have is how the back of the booth looks from the outside because you have those nice big windows. I would think it looks a little awkward, but you can get a half window shutter (plantation shutters I think) or something that could "hide" it like a half height room divider to make it more aesthetically pleasing. The only other concern is if it will still fit them all as they grow. Aside from that I like it and at one point was considering a similar one for a nook in our kitchen
