Turning the dining tables … There’s nothing better than gathering around a dining table to eat supper with friends and family. If you’re stuck on space, try the Mira dining table – it’s beautifully crafted from oak by Ebbe Gehl and is available in three sizes from John Lewis. If you’re gatherings tend to be on the large side, the Glimmer extending table by Tema Home, Portugal from Go Modern extends from 180cm to 260cm. It’s a good priced, quality contemporary piece in white lacquer or chocolate. If you want your dining table to morph into a coffee or console table then check out the Serif and Flip 2 pieces from Go Modern. The base has a gas lift which makes it easy to convert into the three functions. Another great multi-functional piece is the Tessa silver embossed table by Out There Interiors from Not on the High Street – it can be used as a dining table or large desk and has three useful drawers which is inspired by an antique writing desk.
