Before You Go
The traditional way to extend a formal dining table is to insert extra ‘leaves’, or segments, that are inserted once the two opposite ends of the dining table have been slid apart to reveal the framework. This design still works well for some but does raise the question of where to store additional leaves. There are however new designs being forged that allow a table to be opened up using a tiny concertina effect (the ingenious concept above) that negates the need for any separate pieces, as well as many that now have the leaves folded and concealed within the table itself.
To create an eclectic ensemble in your open concept dining area, start by rolling out a vibrant ombre area rug to define the space, then pull four painted metal cafe chairs around a reclaimed wood dining table. Install this charismatic pendant light over the middle of the table to illuminate family meals and dinner parties alike.
