Dining tables act as the nexus of our interiors, embodying the spirit of communal gathering and personal expression. Whether sleek and modern or rustic and inviting, the right dining table can transcend its functional purpose to become a reflection of our lifestyle and taste. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the latest designs to catch our eye for their timeless sense of style.
Nyhavn Dining Table
Designed by Finn Juhl, this teak-veneer dining table wholly embodies the essence of the Danish Modern movement. Incredibly practical – thanks to its size and foldable leaves – yet sleek in design, the Nyhavn is a classic dining option for spaces of all styles, from colour-loving maximalism to monochromatic conservatism. $6,575, at Mjölk.
Dark marble ceramic makes this extendable dining table (with room for up to 12 people) an instant classic. The Augusta presents a clear and undisguised play with shapes, adding an air of lightness. $8,339, at BoConcept.
Infinitamente Dining Table
More of a work of art than a design object, the Infinitamente table is the limited re-edition of the highly successful Infinito table, designed by Roberto Lazzeroni. Inspired by the uniqueness of marble, the table-sculpture becomes an object of scenic impact, boasting the beauty of raw material, which ensures that each piece has a unique appearance. Pricing upon request, at Kiosk.
Just like the table’s matching chair, the Bok dining table has an airy shape with a rock-solid construction. Available in four clean finishes, this design favours simplicity, but complex details make it a timeless and remarkable design. From $2,679, at Stylegarage.
Two Colour Table
Mounted atop tubular steel legs, HAY‘s Two Colour Table is crafted of Valchromat: a durable, engineered wood finished with a water-based lacquer. Slim and boasting a modern silhouette, even proportions of this piece unite the two components, while contrasting colours provide visual interest. $1,840, at Design Within Reach.
Isla Wood Bistro Table
Supported by a vertical reeded pedestal base, this round table by Acre Made is the perfect accent piece for any dining space. The grooved tambour base adds a decorative element to the sleek, handcrafted solid wood; it’s a perfect table for small spaces, eat-in kitchens, and condos. From $4,250, at Acre Made.
The MÖRBYLÅNGA’s full plank design gives it an authentic expression. Plus, details like the floating table top and dovetail joints give the dining table a crafted look. At more than 86 inches long, this design is a bargain for dinner-party hosts and growing families. $1,199, at IKEA.
