Elevate your dining at home with this elegant dining table in walnut. This extendable dining table with the fluted oval Como legs fits well into mid century modern spaces, especially when made with walnut with its unique coloring. The seymour edge has a tailored feel which offsets the rounded oval legs. The legs are set in far enough that you can comfortably place chairs wherever you wish around the table. The table pictured is 36" x 72" and seats 4-6 people. With the 2 - 12" extensions in place you can seat 8-10.
The table top is just over 1" thick and has been made with locally sourced maple. We hand rub an all-natural oil into the wood to give it a matte finish.. We like this food-safe finish because it is durable, having been originally designed for floors.
This table is a center extension table which means that there is a split in the middle of the table where it pulls apart. You can add one or both of the leaves here. With center extension tables, the grain always runs widthwise. More information can be found here.
At Loewen Design Studios, we build each of our dining tables one at a time, just for you, just the way that’s right for you. That’s exactly what we did with this one. It was inspired by another table on our site and then customized for its new home.
Here’s how this table came to be:
The original inspiration for this table was a similar tables we’ve built before, but the people who sit around this table now-a-days wanted an extension table so they would have flexibility on sizing. (Here is the listing for the inspiration if you’re curious)
They liked the Seymour edge, which at just over 1" thick is sturdy without being too much. They also liked the Como legs, which give the table a modern look. The shape of the table was good too as a rectangle is a very practical shape. And they loved the look of the walnut wood.
The main change was to have it made as an extension table. This allows them to have a smaller everyday table while still being able to host more people at the holidays or other special occasions.
We'd love to work with you to design and build your perfect table. Reach out in the chat or at email@example.com with any questions or special requests.
