Why Oak Dining Tables?
When choosing a new dining table, why opt for oak? One of the best reasons for oak dining tables has to be the fact this wood is so hard-wearing; making it ideal for homes with young families in particular. And it’s the solid heaviness of the wood that makes it perfect for large dining tables. Meanwhile, oak looks terrific in a rustic, Scandi and country cottage setting but today’s furniture craftsmen have managed to incorporate it into some amazing contemporary dining tables designs too. You can see what we mean right here:
Nostalgic oak dining table
Quirky and similar in design to those traditional tables you’d find on favourite family picnics in heritage parks, the Ritz Dining Table has an undisputed nostalgic feel. However, designer Ennio Arosio has brought it bang up-to- date with the addition of a centre glass insert and chrome attachments. The super-slim and wide legs give it very much an angular and substantial feel. Starting at £1588 it is available in both a matt and lacquered finish.
Seventies style oak dining table
Slim and elegant, the Witten Dining Table is a contemporary take on a Seventies theme. Perfect for today’s contemporary open-plan look, the beautifully warm honey-coloured wild oak wood on this table is solid. The bold and sturdy design of this striking boat-shaped dining table is simply steeped in German ingenuity. Customised designs are welcomed with an extensive choice of base shape, material and a fixed or extended table top.
Smart oak dining table
Just because you don’t have a large kitchen or dining room, it doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the beauty of a solid oak table. The designers of the smart Bruges Flip Leaf Table have certainly made sure of that. This excellent casual dining option, with its sturdy central column, can be folded away once family dinner or that small dinner party you’ve organised is past. Priced at £1149, this handcrafted flexible piece of furniture simply oozes style and practicality.
Scandi-look oak dining table
Introduce some Scandi lightness and minimalism into your home with this eye-catching Bianca Fixed Rectangular Table with chamfered edging. Priced £999 this is excellent value for a dining table which has been meticulously handcrafted from high-grade European oak. The natural beauty of the wood is in evidence throughout while the asymmetric best boasts a rather quirky piece of 45 degrees support. Also available in an extendable version for larger families or dinner party hosting.
Bistro-style oak dining table
The Carlson Round Extending Dining Table in finest natural blonde American oak with veneers ticks many boxes. Its soft roundness is a fine antidote to the geometrical straight lines of most kitchens and dining furniture, while dovetail joints impress its quality on diners. At 120cm it doesn’t demand much space in a room so perfect for couples or small families, yet given the challenge of a forthcoming dinner party it can extend up to 165cm. Priced at £1099 you’re guaranteed this sturdy and elegant bistro-style table will be a part of your family home for a long time to come.
