This round expandable dining table is a beautiful, functional addition to a modern kitchen or small dining room. The table is made of walnut with a spiced finish and the legs are made of maple with a black finish. The combination gives the table a modern look. The small round everyday size is ideal for high traffic areas like a kitchen or a small dining room with leaves for those days you're hosting your friends. The chesbro
legs match the top stylistically and stay nicely out of the way of your chairs, making for a functional everyday table. The table pictured is 42" x 42" and seats 4 people. With the 2 - 18" leaves you can seat 6-8.
The table top is just over 1" thick and has been made with locally sourced walnut. The legs have 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 came from one we’ve built before, but the people who sit around this table now-a-days wanted to make a couple changes. (Here the inspiration table if you’re curious)
They liked the Chesbro legs, which give the table a modern, organic look.
The shape of the table was good too as a round that extends into a racetrack is a very practical shape.
The main change was the wood and the finish. They decided that they wanted to imitate the look of black steel legs but soften the look by building them out of wood. The tight grain of maple fits this use perfectly with how it takes the finish. The reddish tones of the spiced finish on the walnut top pair really well with the black legs.
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.
