Dining table invites you to enjoy the company and tasty meals

At its best, the multi-purpose table also serves as a desk for other everyday tasks. Whether you are looking for a small, large, angular, or round table, you will find the one from our selection!

&Tradition In Between SK3 table 90 cm, black oak

For the small space

A compact dining area requires petite furniture with sleek legs and a light appearance. &Tradition's In Between is a small dining table designed by Sami Kallio that charms with its curved shapes and sloping legs. If you wish to hide or store the table every now and then, it features easily detachable legs. The smaller table works also as a breakfast table in the kitchen if the larger dining table is placed elsewhere.

Eero Aarnio Originals Parabel dining table

Asymmetrical design

The dining table can be a beautiful work of art as well as a practical helper at once. Eero Aarnio’s Parabel is made of fiberglass, which is one of the designer's favorite materials – it allows free and expressive design but is one of the easy to care and long-lasting materials to meet the needs of a table surface. The white color gives justice to the sculptural, asymmetrical shape.
