Extending Tables to Get Your Guests Talking
Friday, 24 September 2021
As autumn and winter start to draw in, we find ourselves moving inside for our festivities, and no doubt the dining room will start to play an important role in your upcoming hosting engagements. A dining table shouldn't be a challenge when it comes to accommodating extra guests; this is where the extending table comes into its own. And it needn't be purely practical; we’ve selected some out-of-the-ordinary designs to 'break the ice' and get the conversation started at dinner.
The Tyron Table by Cattelan Italia makes a bold statement with an X-shaped sculptural base and sleek ceramic top, it’s sure to showcase a daring design aesthetic. Or the Hey Gio! Table by Connubia Calligaris with its retro flair; it features a tapered wide stem base which supports a table top in a choice of ceramic or melamine finishes. The butterfly extension matches the base in colour, not the top — making for an unexpected twist on opening.
The Bridge Table by Bontempi Casa brings a lighter look with a subtly bridge-inspired metal base and decorative details in your chosen contrast finish. Extending tops complete the look in glass or marble-ceramic.
The ceramic top of the Sunshine Table by Calligaris is supported by a unique frame of contrasting curved and 'L' shaped elements. And to combine contemporary aesthetic with a bolder design feel, the Delta family by Bontempi Casa feature a contemporary angular frame that elegantly intertwines and overlaps creating a diamond shape, which can then be finished with contrasting decorative details. An extending table top can be selected in glass, ceramic or wood versions.
All these designs come with extending options allowing you the freedom to have space when you want it, and then house guests comfortably when the occasion arises.
