Hey! I’m Darlene. As part of the Loewen family I’ve had a chance to see our business grow and our work family grow. Most of my time is currently focused on the marketing side, trying to understand how we can best provide information and advice as you figure out the best table for you.
I love seeing the tables come through the shop and while they are all lovely, I do, of course, have some favorites.
I have a soft spot for a mid-century modern look – I like the delicate look of the legs and I like how this table doesn’t take over a room. At the same time, it is a sturdy design and as an extendable table, it is SO practical. I think this table is just really pretty and really practical.
I really like round tables because they are easy to walk around as there aren’t any corners to bump into. And I love how everyone around the table can see each other. This makes conversation so much easier.
The extendable aspect of this table is a bonus. The leaves add to the middle of the table, making it a racetrack oval. I like being able to make the table bigger for meals when friends or family are over without needing to have a big table every day. This table is one that Ted and I are considering for our kitchen dining area.
I love how elegant this table looks! The rounded ends of the table top and the oval shape of the legs give the table a softness that I really like. At the same time, the fluted pillar legs have a presence to them. To me this just feels like the perfect table for a sophisticated dining room.
