10 OF THE BEST: DINING TABLES by Kate Watson-Smyth
So it’s September. The summer holidays may still be rolling on, but for the rest of us, it’s all about shiny new pencil cases and starting afresh. We started this series with a look at the 10 best dining chairs, moved on to floor lamps and now it’s back to food (a subject always close to my heart) with a look at 10 of the best dining tables. You will note there are no round tables. I just can’t get on board with a round table. I don’t know why. Perhaps, if faced with outrage from you all, I shall focus on round tables at a later date – let me know (I’m sure you will). I have, however, tried to include a mix of sizes, prices, materials and shapes (any shape as long as it’s a rectangle) by which I mean look at the legs.
Steuart Padwick Double Cross Table
This table is so cool. When you want it to be smaller you simply fold the top of the table in half and then fold the legs back against each other and bingo. It’s such a clever idea and I have seen this table in real life and can vouch for its fabulessness. The legs come in either orange or yellow, but Steuart will make them in any colour you like if you ask him nicely (and pay a little more).
Like what you see?
