Louis Extending Dining Table: Product Spotlight
August 17, 2018 at 3:27 pm 0
  When it comes to a family dining table, durability is a must. It’d be no good having a table that looks the part but isn’t up to scratch when it comes to usability. We champion all of our dining tables as being fit for everyday use, none more so than our new Ceramic Louis Dining Table. This table not only looks great, but it’s incredibly durable and practical too. In this product spotlight, we’ll talk you through the great features of this piece has to offer, and why you need to consider having the Louis table in your home!

Practicality & Durability

Fajitas for dinner, buffet spreads and birthday parties are all great occasions, but they can take their toll on our dining tables. And who wants to hide a good looking table under a plastic cover? Well, you’ll be glad to hear that with the Louis this won’t be an issue.   The table surface is made from a durable ceramic that’s been backed onto tempered safety glass. Although a bit of a mouthful to say, this is what makes the Louis so sturdy. The ceramic top is resistant to over 100°C heat, so you can place hot dishes straight from the oven onto the ceramic surface and not worry about the material warping.     The ceramic is also fully scratch proof. This means it’s more durable than being scratch resistant, so ideal for busy mealtimes and families with younger children. You can fill your table full of plates, dishes and pans and not worry about damaging the surface.  

Louis Table Finishes

Marble & Light Grey

One of the limitations of a real marble table (other than the price) is that it's porous. The marble backed ceramic finish is, therefore, a great alternative as it’s resistant to absorption. So you get the luxurious look of a marble table but with increased durability.

Softly Mottled Stone

The other two finishes for the Louis are a light and dark grey ceramic. If you look closely, you can see the surface has a textured stone-like appearance, rather than being one flat colour. This gives the table a natural look but with the added benefit of the durable ceramic. The darker of the two will create a real statement look in your dining area while the lighter grey is ideal for styling alongside modern finishes.

Make Room For All!

Extending dining tables are ideal if you want the option of extra seats but don’t need a large table up all of the time. Extending tables also give you added versatility and can help you maximise the space you have available. The Louis table has a single butterfly extension piece. It’s so easy to use; just pull the table apart then flip and clip the extension in place. The extension is stored within the top so you don’t need to think about where to put it when it’s not in use. This makes it incredibly user-friendly. Unextended, the table can seat four to six (using the table ends). With the extension in place, you’ll be able to seat up to eight. Seating will also depend on your choice of dining chair. For example, some chairs have a wider base while others are taller and slimmer.  So if you want to maximise the use of this table, it’s best to check the width of your chairs.
Louis Ceramic Marble and Deco Real Leather Extending Dining Set

Because of the wider seat of the Deco, the Louis is better suited to a six-seater set up.

Louis Light Grey Ceramic and Lucia Extending Dining Set

However, with the Lucia chairs, you can fit up to eight thanks to the slimmer shape of the seats.

Colour & Coordination

The extension piece is made from a quality MDF board. It’s satin painted to match the colour of the leg frame while also coordinating with the colours of the ceramic top.  The MDF extension isn’t heat or scratch resistant like the ceramic top, so it’s best to still use heatproof coasters and mats on this section of the table surface. The stainless steel leg frame is satin painted, same as the MDF extension piece. We’ve added an inverted 45° sculpted angular detail so the leg frame neatly tucks under the table top. This gives the leg frame a subtle yet considered design detail on the leg, without interrupting the smooth table surface.  

Care and Cleaning

To clean the ceramic table surface, use a wet sponge and a mild detergent. It’s that simple! Because ceramic is extremely durable, it’s less prone to scratches and stains than a natural stone, so you can spend less time worrying about the clean-up and more time enjoying mealtimes.   To find out even more about this durable table, you can view the Louis Ceramic Marble and Light Grey Extending Dining Table, Louis Dark Grey Ceramic Extending Dining Table and Louis Light Grey Ceramic Extending Dining Table over on our website.   For more tips on how to buy the perfect dining table, take a look at our Dining Table Buying Guide.

Danetti Outdoor: Get to Know our NEW Range of Modern Garden Furniture
March 14, 2018 at 10:55 am 0
You may have seen over the last few months a smattering of images of our new Danetti Outdoor Range. A capsule collection of modern and contemporary garden furniture with all the comforts of inside, outside.   As warmer weather is on the horizon, we are all dreaming of those long summer nights spent with friends and family. And what better way to get the outdoor inspiration flowing than taking a look at our new outdoor furniture range. You're best to draw up your shopping list now so you're ready to enjoy every second of the warm weather! Numbers are limited so you won't want to hang around for this one...  

The Outdoor Range

While designing this new range of durable garden furniture, function, style and easy maintenance were at the forefront. We have created a versatile range of 2 seater dining tables, for smaller gardens and patios, to larger 6 seater garden dining table and luxurious corner sofas. Regardless of the size of your garden, you're sure to find your new outdoor furniture right here.  

Palermo 2-4 Seater Dining Table

  The Palermo 2 Seater Garden Dining Table is the ideal option for those with smaller gardens. You can quite happily seat 2-4 people, depending on your needs. As with all of our outdoor dining tables, the etched tempered glass top adds weight to the durable aluminium base and gives a soft, matte finish.   Team with the Lola stackable garden dining chair for a clean, minimal outdoor setting. The Lola Chair comes in Aqua, Slate Grey and White.  

Palermo 4 Seater Dining Table

Available in your choice of White or Dark Grey, the Palermo 4 seater is the perfect choice for first-time buyers and mid-sized gardens. This outdoor dining table is super versatile and can be paired with either our garden dining benches or your favourite stackable dining chairs.       Pair with the stunning Skye Outdoor Stackable Dining Chair for an Ibiza inspired designer garden setting. Available in White, Slate Grey, Aqua or Olive Green to suit your outdoor colour schemes.   Alternatively, for a more uniform garden setting, why not choose 2 backless garden benches with your 4 seater Palermo Dining Table? This space-saving dining set allows you to tuck the benches completely under the tempered glass outdoor dining table. This means you can keep the patio clear with easy access to your tabletop for those, larger parties!    

Palermo 6 Seater Outdoor Dining Table

If you have a larger garden, our Palermo 6 seater dining tables would be a great choice for you. The great thing about outdoor furniture is that place settings are much more flexible. More guests? No problem! Simply pull up a couple extra chairs or seat a few extra bums on our dining benches and you can happily seat 8 or more!   The White Palermo Range is suited for fresh, modern garden styles and works great with our Aqua or Yellow stackable outdoor dining chairs. The Grey Palermo Range works great with our deeper Slate Grey and Olive Skye Dining Chairs. Place in gardens with darker decking or painted fences for a moody, boho vibe.      

Palermo Garden Dining Benches

Bring a real designer look to your garden with one of our garden benches. From compact 2 seaters to the larger 7 seater corner sofas, these benches will bring the wow factor to any outdoor oasis. If you really want to mix things up, combine your colourful garden dining chairs with a modern garden bench for a social space you'll never want to leave.    

Corner Benches

Keep your garden style slick by pairing the Palermo Corner Bench with our 2 or 3 seater Palermo Backless Benches. This creates a very co-ordinated outdoor space. What's more, as this range of garden furniture is lightweight, you can easily move your dining table out of the way and enjoy your benches all summer long.   Alternatively, match your new Garden Benches to your outdoor dining table, as our Palermo Range comes in the same white and dark grey for a coordinated look.  Mix and match with our bright garden chairs for a fun, laid-back outdoor space.   Available in Yellow (Ginger), White and Cool Grey, the Edie Stackable Garden Chair will add colour and structure to your garden. Also available is the coordinating Edie Armchair, for added style and comfort.    

Fresco 6 Seater Dining Table

If a pedestal style garden table is not your cup of tea, take a look at the Fresco Outdoor Dining Tables. Made out of the same lightweight and durable aluminium and etched tempered glass, the Fresco Dining Table has a tapered style leg for a minimal look. Pair up with the Edie stackable plastic garden chairs for a crisp, classic style.     Add the Edie Dining Armchair at the ends of your tables for an indoor seating style. These chairs are also great for families, as children are less likely to be running around during dinner when sat in an armchair!     The tapered leg of the Fresco Dining Table offers a simple silhouette, to keep your garden light and allow your perfectly manicured lawns to be shown off.    

Koko 4 Seater Dining Table

And finally, take a look at our Koko 4 Seater Dining Table. Comfortably seats 4 with the flexibility to squeeze in more, depending on how many you're entertaining. With a similar style leg to the Fresco Range, the minimal shape of this table is ideal for compact gardens.   Pair with the Lola Dining Chair to keep the simple silhouette, or why not choose a combination of colours for a fun setting.
