Wood dining tables are plentiful. They come in a variety of designs ranging from clean and contemporary through to classic retro and casual country. What’s lovely about wooden varieties is that they look even better when aged with a bit of wear and tear. So don’t worry about covering with a cloth, embrace the gradual distressing and celebrate the natural beauty instead. If you’re on the hunt for wood dining tables for your dining room or kitchen diner here are my favourites to get you started on your quest.
Wood dining tables – clean and contemporary
Crafted from solid American Oak and Oak Veneer the Sonoma is a simple and understated table. The beauty shines through in the dovetail joints and grain detail which has been coated in a low sheen lacquer. The measurements are 75cm high, 140cm in length and 85cm wide. If you’re planning a party you’ll be pleased to know that this item extends to 187cm to seat between six to eight people – £549 from Marks and Spencer UK.
Beautifully crafted and sophisticated, the Italian designed Lucido features a thin wooden top which rests on chunky legs for a contemporary feel. It’s available in walnut or oak and comes in three sizes with the smallest being 75cm high, 190cm wide and 90cm in depth – £1795-2795 from Heal’s.
