Dining Tables

Core System Table

Look closely and you’ll see powder coated steel incorporated underneath this tabletop, though it’s the beauty of solid White Oak (locally sourced) that really steals the show. A hand rubbed oil finish gives off a nice gleam and the black oxide fasteners provide a dash of contrast and detail. Each table is made and assembled to order in Strand Design’s workshop.

Hearty Table

However you feel about the Novogratz duo, they do know how to pick pieces with character. This table for CB2 is based on their own French antique lab table, and, as you can see, has two drawers on each side that will hold cutlery, table linens, and all manner of family miscellany, as the case may be. The top is solid acacia wood with a bottom iron stretcher base.

Canteen Table Leg Set

Oh, what a predicament you’re in when you only need table legs. We’ve posted a few trestle options, but this Canteen set might just be the best alternative to the straight forward (and somewhat boring) IKEA legs. No need for a bracing system, as the leg fixes directly to the tabletop. Choose from 7 available colors. Each box includes 4 legs.

Magis Baguette Table

This Baguette Table from Magis is 15% off Until June 11, which means you can save a chunk of change if it fits your dining requirements (and your budget). The thin, angled legs bring to mind the Eames House Bird a little, don’t you think? The black is my personal favorite, but there’s also a polished version as well as white.

Adaptable Table

Update: $499, down from $1,200.00. Some of the color options are sold out, but you’re saving $500 (at DWR, no less), so you can’t complain too much.

Well, the more persnickety among us will be thrilled to learn that this table has multiple color configurations. That’s right, you can mix materials as you wish. Do you want a white top with oak legs? An all grey table? All black? A white table with a green apron? No problem, TAF Architects has seen to those and several more options. 64 options, to be exact. Now, the issue is, just which color combination do you want? (Personally, I like the black top with oak legs.)

Moorish Mosaic Table

Remember the Lagarta Stool? This table is from the same designer, Ana Mestre, and utilizes the same natural agglomerate cork, except this time the cork is printed with an intricate Moorish pattern inspired from the historical tiles of the city Beja.

LAX Wall Mounted Table

We all know small kitchens and dining areas can be a challenge, so how about removing some table legs to make things easier? This table by MASH Studios is just about as minimal as you can get, especially if you forgo chairs. There’s a “uniquely engineered steel mounting system” that assures it’ll remain on the wall and, of course, there’s no visual clutter.

Branch Dining Table

Well, look at this. You can save a little bit of dough on this new Branch Dining Table from Blu Dot as their annual 20% off sale has now kicked off (from Oct 20 to Nov 8). The solid oak is nicely supported by black powder-coated ‘branch’ steel legs. Two sizes to choose from: 76″ and 91″.

Dylan Dining Table

Designed by Jonas Wahlstrom, this sustainable shesham plank table has just the right balance of wood and iron to give the industrial vibe without getting too heavy metal, if you know what I mean. The architectural iron ‘W’ base changes shape depending on your sight line; it adds an interesting visual touch. A water-based clear lacquer sealant protects the wood, though coasters are recommended to protect the finish from temperature extremes and spills. Best of all, the price is under the $1G mark.

Blox Mango Table

This table has the nice detail of asymmetric legs to set it apart from other clean lined dining options. Plantation grown solid mango wood makes for a warm wood grain, and the price of $499 means there’s some room in your budget for chairs too.

Seats six.

Loop Stand Frames

Sure, the Loop Stand Table ($1,265.00) is an excellent choice for a dining or work table. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you might think about purchasing the Loop Stand Frames (2 pcs, $289.00) instead and then figure out an alternative top for yourself. (Personally, I’ve stained and sealed a plywood top for my own dining table for around $100 and been quite pleased with the results.)

Saarinen Tables

“I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” So said Eero Saarinen, designer of the well known pedestal (aka Tulip) collection, which includes a dining, coffee and side table.
Winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award, Saarinen’s collection is one of many iconic designs from the mid century.

Balls Table from Moooi

Balls. This is nothing new (2005), but I just noticed the other day that it folds flat for storage. So, in theory, it’s a luxury version of those horrible looking folding tables that have pinched all of our hands at one time or another and driven us nuts with their distinctive ugly appearance. (This looks so much better, of course, and costs quite a bit more, hence the term ‘luxury’ thrown in the previous sentence.)

Walker vs. Strut

Update: Ah-ha! Blu Dot made this table for Crate&Barrel, hence the striking resemblance. See John’s comment below.

We’re all familiar with the occasional copy cat, and it’s hard to complain when the copier comes up with something so similar at a lesser price point. Sure, there’s the intellectual property argument, but as long as the item is different enough, there’s no real harm done, right? (Right?)

3styletable

Maybe this table won’t win first place in a beauty contest, but it sure will beat the pants off others in a triathlon. It can convert from dining table to coffee table to desk, without tools or finicky extra hardware. And it packs flat for easy storage and transport. See what I mean? It’s multifunctional, and in any tiny apartment space that wins hands down.
