Blue metal dining table with criss-cross legs

Designed by Nendo for Cappellini in 2008, the Bambi Table is a versatile piece that can be used as an indoor/outdoor dining table or as a desk in an office space. Cast in a rich blue hue, the Bambi is made of thin metal, which creates sharp edges and captivating lines.

Innovative diagonal expanding dining table

The Wrap Expandable Dining Table from Debra Folz is constructed in Ash wood and borrows from the language of textile weaving. The tabletop is comprised of contrasting sections of ash wood, separated by their different wood grains to give the illusion of multilayered, wrapped fabric. The result is a table that is at once soft and sculptural, and extends on a diagonal to create a decidedly new form.

Modern farm table with wood frame and marble tabletop

This Farm Table was created for MatterMade with a nod to its classic American origins. By highlighting only the most essential elements of the iconic farm table, designer Christopher Specce has brought this unequivocally American archetype into the present. The Farm Table’s stained maple base and rounded legs give it an inviting utility, while the smooth and sumptuous marble top lends a pleasing contemporary refinement.

 

Shown with Bec Brittain A-Shades Pendant Light and MatterMade Windsor Chair.

Simple 8-foot rosewood dining table

Designer Jay Novak’s fascination with the capability of plywood inspired the Tenon Dining Table, which is designed to be both innovative and simplistic. Each Tenon table is built with 26 layers of high-quality wood for strength and durability. The table’s resilience comes from omni-directional plywood connections and T-shaped mortise and tenon joints.

 

Shown in eight-foot length; also available in five-foot length and six-foot length.

Powder-coated green outdoor dining table

When it comes to furniture that toes the line between outdoor-specific and indoor-worthy, Fermob’s collection is at the top of the list. The Luxembourg Dining Table is perfect for creating an outdoor dining space on a patio or deck, or to add color in an indoor dining room.

Folding, oval-shaped black dining table

Designed by Objekten’s CEO and Co-founder Alain Berteau, the Oval Table presents a softer alternative to traditional rectilinear tables.
