A triumph of form over function? If they had put 3 lumps on the circular bit it would have sat steady, but no doubt 'designed' by an artistic type. I have a suspicion that a better design altogether would be 6 legs, but alternate ones just short of a perfectly flat floor, then it would sit down without rocking, but if overloaded on one side would only tip a little bit before one of the extra legs cam down.

Went to a Mercure hotel yesterday for afternoon tea (yes that's how we live down in Somerset) new place and very nice restaurant, sat down at said new table and guess what, yes it wobbled. Looked at feet (4) and they appeared to have screw adjusters, whizzed one around a bit but made not a scrap of difference. So conclusion is, wonky tables are specially made for the restaurant market.
