This narrow expandable kitchen table and bench will sit beautifully in a bright modern kitchen. The custom natural finish and finlay edge make the table feel light and bright. The racetrack shape makes it perfect for those high traffic areas, and being extendable means you are always ready for visitors. These custom legs give the table a minimalist look and stay nicely out of the way of your chairs, making for a functional everyday table. The table pictured is 30" x 72" and seats 4-6 people. With the 2 - 18" leaves in place you can seat another 4 people. The bench as shown is 48" long.
The table top is just over 1" thick and has been made with locally sourced ash. 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 table we’ve built before, but the people who sit around this table now-a-days wanted to make a couple changes. (Here is the listing for the inspiration if you’re curious)
They liked the Finlay edge with the bevel that helps to thin out the look of the table.
They also liked the custom legs, which give the table and benches a modern look.
The shape of the table was good too as a racetrack is easy to walk around
The main change was the wood and the finish. This table is made from Ash wood, a hardwood with a beautiful grain similar to Oak. The custom natural finish brightens the entire table. They also chose to make it an extendable table and to add a bench. All of these details come together for a very different look than the original inspiration.
We'd love to work with you to design and build your perfect table. Reach out in the chat or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or special requests.
