Dining Tables

Strut 70″ Work Table

Here’s a sort-of-affordable glass table with an interesting wood base. ‘Sort-of-affordable’ in this case means there’s no comma in the price tag.

Glass top floats on dramatically angled shesham wood legs with a matte walnut stain. Crossbar support connects the base with striking stainless steel hardware that’s an integral part of the design.

Seats four if using as a dining table.

Momantai Etched Stainless Steel Top Tables

Second hand tables get a new lease of life with etched stainless steel tops. It’s a stellar idea, and I sort of love the traditional lace-work design paired with steel. As each piece is unique, prices depend on size and condition; emailing Momantai Design directly will give you a better estimate. If you’re not all that into second hand furniture, maybe you’ll prefer the Praios table (shown bottom) with its brand spanking new thin metal frame.

Classic lace-work translated by means of modern production technology; by etching the pattern in stainless steel, the authentic lace of Plauener Spitze gets a new graphic interpretation. A collaboration of Roel van Hove of Etsprit and Ulrike Jurklies of Momantai Design

Recycled Tables Rondra, Firun, Rahja, Phex (top): between 100 and 600
Table Praios, 190 x 80 cm (bottom): 3521 for the the brushed finish, and 4110 for the polished surface.

Delivery should take roughly 8 weeks depending on the destination.

Also, keep in mind shipping costs (from The Netherlands) might bump the price up quite a bit, so bear that in mind.

UO Sawhorse Table Legs and Crawford Sawhorse

As one of you recently pointed out, there’s quite a few inexpensive trestle options out there, and you can get whatever sized top you want from a glass shop or hardware store.

On the left, is Urban Outfitter’s Sawhorse Table Legs, which at $38.00 for a set of two is a pretty good deal, and actually less expensive than the sawhorses on the right. However, the ones on the right are ‘real’ sawhorses, so they’re probably a bit more sturdy as well as adjustable. I actually used these yellow sawhorses as a work table base in my office/studio when I lived in Houston. It’s hard to tell, but from the side these sawhorses actually have a little Prouve-ish feel, or at least that’s what I thought of them (it’s the angled steel in a bright color, I think). If you don’t mind an industrial-edgy look, they do the job wonderfully and will hold up well over time, either in your studio/office space or in the garage for odd jobs.

Engineer Dining Table

Whaa? $399, for real? That price more than qualifies this indoor/outdoor sawhorse table as an exceptionally affordable option for your dining needs.

Industrial takes a stand under sleek glass to dine six, indoors and out. Sawhorse supports rivet a third leg each, with almost humorous small feet in stride. Mild steel is hot-dip galvanized to a raw crystalline gunmetal grey that’s rustproof and scratch-resistant. Each piece is unique and will take on a darker look over time. Protective floor pads included.

M’ovo Folding Table by Lapalma

While this does have a certain ironing-board feel to it, the promise of being able to easily shift from table to table-being-vertically-stored has a certain allure. For the price, I’d expect it to move from one position to the other extremely smoothly.

m’ovo table can be transformed by an easy movement: a second leg unfolds while the top is lowered to horizontal position. the solid oval base has concealed wheels so that the table can be shifted easily before use. when the flip-top is down, the wheels are lifted up and the base is stopped.

Isometric Table and Chairs

Austere lines and precise craftsmanship make this dining set a serious consideration if you’re in the market for updating your dining area. Take special note of the Isometric Chair; it’s incredibly lovely.

Designed to accompany the Isometric Chair, the Isometric Table is a study in reduction and opposition. The design explores the intersection of two-dimensional planes flowing together to create a three-dimensional form.

Parquet Dining Table

This is one snazzy table. I love the angular legs and parquet detailing, and, to sweeten the deal, there’s a removable leaf for versatility.

Our Parquet Dining Table is a solid, classic design that demonstrates our commitment to craft. Crisp, angular legs and an impeccably crafted oak tabletop are delightful for entertaining. The center leaf is surprisingly easy to remove for an intimate gathering.

Gus Modern Corner Block Dining Table

I have absolutely no idea why this particular retailer has a price of $870.00 on this table when other places have it at $1,495.00. Is it a mistake? Am I missing something like a defect listed or a floor model sale?

Featuring distinctive L-shaped legs and a warm European oak grain, the Corner Block Dining Table defines sleek design and solid construction. With its generous size and clean lines, it looks great in any contemporary dining space.

Giulie Collection

So, apparently harvesting Sugi trees in Japan is good for the environment (because they are becoming too plentiful) but not many designers will work with the wood because it’s overly soft and gnarly. So, Mr. Enzo Mari stepped up to the plate and designed the very nice (and expensive) Giulie collection to help with the problem. To read more, here’s an article from MetropolisMag.com entitled ‘No Love For Sugi’.

Hida Sangyo was founded in 1920 and is one of the leading wooden furniture makers of Japan, based in the Takayama region. This part of Japan is known for its excellent wood craftsmanship, originating back to the 7th Century Nara period. This collection is made predominately of the beautiful Japanese sugi wood, realized with state-of-the-art industrial technology of wood compression.

Designed by Enzo Mari.
