WHAT IS A SQUOVAL?

At Loewen Design Studios we offer a variety of table shapes including our newest shape that we call a squoval. It’s a combination of a square and an oval. Maybe more of a rectangle and an oval depending on the size 

The combination is to take advantage of the best parts of both tables. Rectangles are great at using space well. They're very good for fitting a lot of people around your table and serving dishes on your table as well. The oval is best for conversation and seeing everyone around the table. So the squoval has the straight ends of a rectangle to give lots of space, and the long edges mirror an oval with a curve making it a perfect combination of the two.

This allows the table to still have all the room needed for people to sit around it, but lets all the people see each other well. 

WHY DO I WANT A SQUOVAL?

Squovals are best for slightly larger tables. They are wonderful for tables that seat 3 or more along the long edge so they can all comfortably see each other while sitting at the table. With a standard rectangular table this can be difficult as the person in the middle would be in the way. The curved long edge that defines the squoval table shape is what makes this so special. It makes conversation more comfortable at the table for everyone. People don’t naturally make squares and rectangles when we talk; a squoval lets everyone chat comfortably.

Fitzroy Walnut Squoval Table

$4,280.00 USD

This walnut squoval table is not only unique, but extremely functional for gatherings. The shape allows for all guests to see each other, no matter where you sit, without sacrificing any space for place settings, serving dishes, and centrepieces. The base of the table will also turn heads, making for an eye-catching piece of furniture.

The table pictured is 84" long, 42" wide in the middle, and 36" wide at the ends. The finished top is at 30” above the floor.  This is a good size for 6-10 people.

The table top is made of solid walnut.  Walnut is a hardwood which means that it won't easily be damaged by using the table.  We build our table tops using multiple planks which helps to create a stronger table than you would get from just one slab.  This table is just over 1” thick.  

The base for this table is made of walnut to match the top.  This is called a cross base.  It has been finished to match the table. The wood has been finished with an all-natural oil.  We hand rub this oil into the wood.  It adheres to the individual fibres, instead of just sitting on top, to create a durable matte finish.

This table is part of our Fitzroy collection. Choose one of our standard sizes listed or customize the table.  Either way, your table will be custom built for you.  If there are any details you wish to confirm or change, reach out to us in the chat or through a contact form and we’ll be sure to get it perfect. We look forward to working with you.love to help you design your perfect table.
