Dining Room Furniture
Sharing a meal is a long tradition. Entertaining friends and family
provides opportunities for developing friendships and catching up
with old friends. Some people prefer small intimate parties, others
large energetic ones. Often we would like to be able to adapt the
space to suit the occasion.
Commissioning a table that will fit into our dining room while
providing comfortable space for us to entertain our friends allows
us to specify the size and shape, and the number of people we prefer
to accommodate. More than that we can also design it so that it
is adaptable - transforming a small intimate table for 4 into a
long, elegant table for 8. Whereas most production made tables come
in standard sizes, which might prove just too large or wide for
your space, a personally designed and hand built table can be made
to your personal specifications, taking account of particularly
narrow or square rooms. We can also design the shape of the table
to suit your preferences. As in this large (1.5m square) table.
Square Oak Table
This 1.5m square table seats 8 comfortably. The legs project past
the corners of the top to provide an extra point of interest.
- Walnut & Sycamore
Made from Pippy Sycamore and American Walnut.
This piece was designed to house a new canteen of cutlery. Having
allocated cutlery to the top two drawers there was then the decision
as to what to do with the rest of the space. A wine rack seemed
an obvious choice and then a smaller drawer for serviettes and place
mats. This then leaves space below for spirit bottles or cookery
Gentle Curve Bookcase – Oak
This bookcase is made in two mirror parts. It is designed for a
narrow dining area and curves gently towards the middle. This enables
larger books to be stored at each end and gives more space for diners
in the middle.
Corner Glass & China Cabinet
Maple with American cherry inlay.
