This solid oak dining table will sit beautifully in a modern dining room. The custom light finish and seymour edge make the table feel light and elegant. The elliptical shape makes it easy to walk around and the chapman pedestal base reinforces the light feel of the table and provides flexibility on how chairs are placed around the table. The table pictured is 54" x 84" and seats 6-8 people.
The table top is just over 1" thick and has been made with locally sourced oak. 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.
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 to make a couple changes. (Here is the listing for the inspiration if you’re curious)
They liked the Chapman base which, as a pedestal, looks elegant and gives flexibility on chair placement. They also liked the elliptical oval shape which is easy to walk around. And they liked the wood - oak has a pretty grain.
The main changes were the edge and the finish. They chose a seymour edge that has a tailored look and they opted for a lighter finish. This is a custom finish that is similar to natural but with less yellow tones.
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.
