Dining Tables

Snaregade Tables by Norm.Architects

Need a dining table or work surface? You can’t go wrong with one of the three Snaregade* Tables by Norm.Architects, as it has such slender supports for its oak veneer tabletop. That leaves plenty of room for legs, and, with such a spare and elegant look, it would be right at home in the dining room or office. The Snaregade was originally a one-off design for Bjarne Hansen, Menu’s creative director and founder, but Norm.Architects were so fond of it they made a few for their own studio. Now, thankfully, it’s a collection available to all.

Crosscut Trestle Legs

Don’t get too excited; that price you see to the right is for the trestle legs only, not the whole dining table. But, hey, maybe you’re excited about that price for just the trestle legs, as that means you can add whatever top you wish and have a great, portable option for your work or for feeding your face. Two pieces of laser-cut steel and six oak legs make up the Crosscut Trestle Legs set, and, as you can see from the product photo, the cylindrical legs fit neatly into the steel. Update: Now on sale from the Dwell Store for $309.99 until quantities last.

Simone Table and Bench

If you’re looking for a super-minimal table or bench, you might like the looks of the Simone Collection by 57st. design. Double-thick Baltic birch plywood has dovetailed ends (spaced in irregular intervals) for visual interest and overall strength. The short or long bench would do well in an entryway or hallway, and won’t break the bank, thankfully. Free shipping, too, just in case that sweetens the deal.

SawHorse Table

This SawHorse Table has substantial legs that are sure to withstand many heavy dishes of lots of casual dinners. No need to worry about the tabletop surface either, as the table will age well thanks to its fitting materials. The ebonized oak base holds a blue ash top, and both are made to order by Matt Alexander of HollerDesign in his family’s workshop/CowBlade Sawmill.

Extending Table, 2131 Collection

Remember the Walnut and Marble Storage Cube from Ike Bahadourian’s 2131 collection we posted a few days ago? There’s also this walnut Extending Table that extends from 5′ to 10′ long. Doubling your seating capacity without messing with additional leaves or tables sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? And, don’t just think of it for the dining room- you can also rotate the top for more of a workstation setup.

Hacienda Table

How about a little hardware with your dining table? An oxidized iron X-base provides support for solid (sustainable) mango wood planks while smaller touches of polished aluminum adds a hint of industrial gleam. Inspired by old Swedish tapetserarbords (wallpaper tables), the designer Jonas Wahlström intends for this table to be just as suitable in the dining room as in an office or workspace.

Adap.Table Legs

The Adap.Table Legs follow along the same lines as the Floyd Leg; by simply tightening the legs onto a flat surface, you create a table. Two versions are available from Adap.Table (the Delta or the Ribbon) and a contribution of $130 gets you a set of two (add hinges for a fold down table) or $230 gets you a set of four.

Powder-Coated Steel Folding Table

Folding tables, ick. They never look good and they’re so very tacky… right? Wrong! There’s one folding table that actually looks decent, and sort of cheery, thanks to its bright green color. Designed by Benjamin Luddy and Makoto Mizutani, this Steel Folding Table has detachable legs and may be used wherever you need an extra impromptu surface- indoors or outside. You can even hang it on the wall for storage and double the function by using it as a message center with magnets and dry erase markers. Smart.

Keep Table

Why are you seeing the image of an artfully messy room? Because of the table, of course. As you can probably tell with your keen eyes, the Keep Table from Muuto is made from pieces of wood held together with metal bands. You’ll be happy to hear that those pieces of are leftovers from wood furniture production, and because of this, each table is unique. Winner of Muuto’s 2009 Talent Award, the Keep Table was a senior project of design students Petter Thörne and Anders Johnsson from Konstfack School of Design in Stockholm.

Two Tops Series by Marcel Wanders

While not new, the Two Tops Table by Marcel Wanders recently found pride of place on my list of dining table options for a young family. The ‘Two Tops’ has an option to use laptops or coloring books at each end, thanks to a hinged end section that flips up to access the space. To hide the workspace, flip down the lid and you have a clean tabletop for dinnertime, no clearing necessary. It’s a clever solution to make the dining area tidy each evening and allows a kitchen or dining room to serve several functions.

Together Table, Extending

Remember the promise to feature a few more dining tables? Here’s one that doesn’t hide its extension feature. When the drop leaves are locked underneath, the table is rectangular, however, unlock the rounded ends and the table extends to fit more visitors for a larger meal. Plus, it’s from StudioIlse (Ilse Crawford, patron saint of perfect interiors), so you’re safe no matter which size you choose.

Lineage Dining Table

A recent search for a new dining table for my own home revealed a lack of current options here on BLTD, so, in order to fix that, you’ll be seeing a few more tables featured here in the very near future. If you’re also in the market for a dining table, and your budget is quite happy with somewhere around the one grand price point, this Lineage Dining Table could be a good fit. Designed by Italian design team IVdesign.it, the Lineage Table is composed of sustainable acacia wood cut in a dramatic oval with angled antiqued iron legs for a sculptural metal base. Seats up to 10.

Diamond Stackable Table Trestles

If you reside in a European country, I’ll admit, you’ll have an easier time purchasing these table trestles. But don’t think shipping fees will stop those of us that live, say, in the Americas, from getting our grubby little hands on them. Each Diamond table trestle is stable, lightweight, and available in two widths: 55 cm and 70 cm. If you’re planning on buying a couple for a desk or dining table, I’d recommend the blue or orange for a pop of color- go bold!

Double Cross Dining/Console Table

This dining table has a trick up its sleeve: it folds in half to use as a console, a bar, or a desk, thus giving you the versatility for multiple uses. Push it against a wall for console/bar/desk use, and when guests are over, simply pull it out, unfold it, and you have a proper dinner table.

Noi Dining Table

There are quite a few minimal dining tables out there in the marketplace, some of them quite affordable, but not very many of them can claim remarkable craftsmanship in the way the top meets the base. If you look closely, you’ll see that the Noi Dining Table’s surface rests within its steel frame, giving an ultra-slim look and a very durable edge. And, not to worry if you want a specific size or color; Ohio Design offers a good selection of options.
