Do You Enjoy Eating While Sitting on the Floor?

Eating While Sitting on the Floor: Love It or Hate It?

Since my kitchen table can only seat six people, for a recent dinner party in which I had 10 guests, I had to get creative. I turned my coffee table into a dining table, served a Moroccan meal, and had everyone sit on the floor. It was unconventional, but very fun! It's not practiced in the US, but in some cultures food is consumed while sitting on the floor. How do you feel about it?

I don't sit on a pillow, but I do sit on the floor while eating. I like eating at my coffee table, leaned up against the couch. It's comfortable and I make less of a mess that way ;)

I had a friend who just didn't have a tall dining table. She and her fiance just LOVED eating while sitting on the floor. I hated it! They had hardwood floors and my back would kill me after a night at their house. Still, they were good friends, and I would suffer through it.

I love eating while sitting on the floor at a local Turkish restaurant. It makes everything more authentic and intimate!

The only reason I don't like eating while sitting on the floor is because my legs always fall asleep. The above picture makes me think I would like it even less simply because it looks rather cramped.
