We can’t think of any other room in the house where more time is spent than in the kitchen; whether it’s cooking or socializing, the kitchen takes the stage and the dining table becomes the rightful star of the show. Whether the feel is bright and cheerful or dim and relaxed, arguably the most important piece of furniture, the dining table sets the mood, particularly during festive occasions. Choosing the right table for your space is an intensely personal choice and becomes a balance between form and function. MHV shares three of our dining table picks that would be perfect for the lead role.
1. Sigma Drive table from Cattelan Italia
Made in Italy and designed by Philip Jackson, the extendable Sigma Drive table reinvents a classic design into a contemporary masterpiece. Exuding a timeless appeal, the solid timber tabletop and extensions in Walnut Canaletto lacquer, feature subtle irregular edges, adding style to function. Suitable for both traditional and modern dining settings, while also ideal as an office conference table, it is available in various sizes and found at Gabriel Ross.
The Sigma Drive table pairs well with the Isabel dining chair (left) or the Arcadia dining chair (right), both designed by Paolo Cattelan, and available in fabric or leather. Both options come in two back heights and can be found atGabriel Ross.
2. Wolfgang Dining Room Collection by Huppé
Huppé has outdone itself with this contemporary tour de force. The Wolfgang dining collection boasts a white oak table in a grey oak finish. The pièce de résistance of the Wolfgang dining collection table is that it is proudly made in Canada. It is available in a variety of dimensions and seats up to 12 people. Shop these dining tables at Parc Modern.
Designed by Luca Nichetto, one of the world’s most sought-after designers, the Wolfgang chair is a project whose curved wood, used for the back rest and the seat, perfectly harmonizes with the solid wood of the legs and structure, and it is an outspoken reference to Scandinavian design. The Wolfgang dining chair in solid oak features a unique updated midcentury design. Fashioned in solid oak with your choice of fabrics, the chairs are found at Parc Modern.
A classic reference to Scandinavian design, the Wolfgang collection buffet, with two doors and two glass shelves, adds ample dining storage and room for bar essentials. Manufactured in 100% solid oak, the buffet is available in two sizes from Parc Modern.
3. Orbital Extending Table by Calligaris
The Orbital table will definitely be a showstopper at your next dinner party. With its Pininfarina design and automatic extending system, it is the epitome of modern dining. The extensions slide smoothly out from underneath the glass top simultaneously, maintaining the table’s shape. The pedestal base is made of rigid polyurethane and features a large central hole with a metal support plate that ensures stability. The Orbital table could definitely be the rightful star of your next show.
Complimenting the Orbital table, the Etoile chair is the perfect blend of style, comfort, and function.
