September 1, 2017 at 3:47 pm 2
White gloss and glass dining table and colourful fabric chair dining setting In many cases, a dining table is at the heart of the home. It’s a place where friends and family can come together, sit down and enjoy some tasty food. So if you feel like your dining room needs a bit of a makeover or deserves some TLC, you’ve come to the right place! We've put together this Dining Table Buying Guide to help answer all of your dining table needs. From knowing your table measurements to choosing the right finish to coordinate with your space, we’ve got it covered.  

How to Choose the Right Dining Table

If you’ve already started browsing the variety of dining tables on the market, you’ll have seen there’s a lot of choices available. Don’t let that overwhelm you though, as the first step will always be narrowing down your search. Ask yourself the following questions and make a note of each suggestion. Chances are there will be a table out there that ticks all of the right boxes!  

Q1 - How will you use your dining table?

Everyday dining = a table that’s durable and easy to clean will be the main priority. Hub of your home = you’ll want a table that’ll bring people together in a warm and welcoming environment. Mainly for special occasions = a table with a wow factor and really premium look will be best to impress your guests. Table extensions will come in handy too. Doubling up as a workstation or desk = you’ll want a table with a durable surface and enough space for laptops and books.  

Q2 - How many do you need to sit at your dining table?

2-4:  many two seater tables can seat up to four, so this is an ideal option if you’re a little pushed for space. 4-6: Having a table that seats six when you on average only have four is a great option (if you have the space) as you’ll always have room for guests. 6-8:  a six to eight seater dining table will be a real staple piece in your dining room. It’s sure to be an investment piece.  

Q3 - What table finish would be best?

A glossy or matt table finish will instantly create a clean-lined a crisp look. Timber or wood finishes will add both warmth and texture to your dining space. A clear glass dining table is ideal if you want to create a fresh, open and modern dining setting. Choose a frosted glass table if you’re after a durable table with a soft, hazy appearance and a hint of colour.  

Q4 - Do you need an extending table?

YES if:
  • You entertain regularly
  • You have the space to fill
  • You're after a versatile seating arrangement
  NO if:
  • You’re short on space
  • You don’t need extra seats
  • You don’t think you’d benefit from the extension
   

Q5 - What shape dining table would be best?

Round or oval - always feels social and is great for maximising any space. A round table top takes up less room and offers more seating flexibility. Square - gives an open and spacious feel with plenty of table top surface available. Easy to turn an unused corner into a cosy dining spot. Rectangular - lots of choices available and easy to fit within most rooms. Great match with dining benches. Hopefully, that will have given you a better idea of the type of table you are after. We’ll break each part down in a bit more detail later in this post.  

How to Measure a Dining Table

We understand that measuring a dining table isn’t as fun as choosing shapes, styles and finishes. However, it needs to be done! To make things that bit easier, we’ve highlighted the main dining table measurements that you’ll need to consider:  
  1. Table height. This is a key measurement when it comes to choosing dining chairs.
  2. Table length. This will help you decide how well the table will fit in your space.
  3. Table width. This is especially important if you are planning on using the table ends.
  4. Inner leg length. This is the table length from inside the table legs, not the length of the table top.
  5. Apron. This is the depth of the table top which will differ greatly depending on the table top material and table design.
 

And if the table extends:

Make sure you measure the table length both with and without the extensions in place. Ask yourself: will everyone fit? You’ll want to leave enough space for any extra chairs to be tucked in and out. Find out where the extensions are stored: separately or within the table top?     Top Tip: if the table extension leaves can’t be stored within the table, a great and safe place to store them is under your sofa or bed. This won’t take up any of your existing storage space and will keep the extension pieces safely and neatly out of the way.  

Dining Table Spacing:

When measuring your dining table, it's also a good idea to mark out your room. To do this, cut out some fabric or card and lay it where you're planning on having your dining table. This is the easiest way to get a feel for how much physical space the table will occupy. We suggest leaving around 70cm to 90cm between the edge of your table and each wall or between other pieces of furniture in the room. This is so that chairs can be pulled out with ease and leaves enough room for people to pass through.  

Dining Chair Spacing:

Allow between 60cm to 80cm per place setting, dependant on whether you want a cosier feel or a more spacious setting. Remember to also check the width of the footprint of the chairs you are considering. It’s where the feet will go that defines if they’ll fit or not. Measure between the legs from the narrowest point of the table to ensure your chairs will fit neatly under.     Top Tip: The length measurement of a table refers to the length of the table top, not from where you can fit your chairs tucked in underneath. Generally speaking, the description of the table will include how many it can seat, but if you are hoping to squeeze in a few more or use other chairs, make sure you check.  

What Dining Table is Right for My Space?

If you’re short on space…

Opt for a dining table that has a space saving pedestal base. This will allow you keep the base of your table looking spacious, with the option to squeeze in and pull up a couple more seats when needed. A round dining table is also a little less restrictive on how many people you can seat giving you a bit more flexibility in a smaller seating area. Material wise, a clear glass dining table will be less visually impactful in a space due to the transparency of the glass, so this will help to open up the look and feel of a smaller dining room.

If you entertain semi regularly and have the room…

It’s best to upsize. So if you have a household of four, go for a table that seats six. If you have a household of six, opt for an eight seater table and so on. This is a smart table choice as the extra place settings won’t take up much more room but you'll have the seating space available for when you need it. A square or round dining table will create a more intimate dining setting as everyone will be sat equally apart, making it a great choice for sociable dining.

 

If you entertain semi regularly but don’t have a lot of space, or if you don’t want a large dining table all of the time…

Then an extending dining table will answer all of your styling needs! This is because you can extend the table as and when you need the extra seats. Just make sure the table has enough space to be fully extended. You’ll also want to check if the table extensions can be stored within the table top and if they’re not, whether you have a place to store them externally when not in use.

Once you have a better idea of the style of dining table you’re going to choose, the next step will be considering your dining chairs...

  A round dining table… looks effortlessly sleek and smooth when styled alongside rounded back and curved dining chairs, such as our Form and Santo chairs. This look works so well as the shape of the table is carried through to the shape of the chairs to create a really soft and inviting setting.   An extending table… is a great match with a stackable dining chair is as you can stack and store the chairs when not needed.   Chrome or metal finishes... will allow you to match up table and chair legs.  Having a dining table alongside chairs with a coordinating metal finish will instantly help to tie the whole dining set together.     A glass dining table... is a great opportunity to add a splash of colour to your space. Clear glass can be placed alongside a whole variety of colours so you can really have some fun with your styling.   If you'd like to read some more tips on how to choose the right dining chair, check out our handy How To Choose The Right Dining Chair blog post.  

Interior Styling:

A dining table is such a staple feature of any dining room. That’s why the shape and style you choose will really have an impact on the rest of your dining space. Whether your room already has a particular theme, or if you want to create a certain type of look, there is sure to be a table design that suits all of your styling needs.  

Traditional Interior Styling (with a modern twist):

If you have more of a traditional interior and don’t want to jump right in with loads of glossy and reflective finishes, a great option is to go for a wooden table that also has metal elements. The Angola table, for example, has a wonderfully tactile wooden table top while the brushed metal legs will add a subtle yet sleek modern flair.

Scandi Interior Styling:

When it comes to Scandi styling, the colour palette tends to be very light and neutral. Using colours such as light grey and white gives Scandi style its signature clean and calming look, while the incorporation of wooden textures stops the space looking sparse. This is because wooden finishes help to add a touch of warmth. Dining tables like the Cleo 6 Seater Oak and Matt White Dining Table is a great way to add a practical yet stylish Scandi look to your dining space.  

Minimal Interior Styling:

If you love simplistic design and minimal interiors, chances are you’ll want a dining table that reflects this too.  A table like the Neo 6 to 8 Seater Glass Dining Table, with its clear glass top and clean leg frame, are ideal as they add a modern and designer look without being too impactful or overpowering.  

What Material Dining Table?

Now we’ve covered dining table sizing and shapes, let’s take a look at dining table finishes. We’ve touched on a couple of these designer finishes already, but here’s a comprehensive breakdown of each finish, what look it’ll create in your dining area and how to clean it.  

High Gloss Dining Table

The Look: bright, fresh and super modern. Especially Good For: versatile styling. White and grey gloss finishes can be styled alongside a whole variety of dining chair finishes and materials in your existing interior due to their neutral qualities. Gloss is also a very sleek and contemporary dining table finish. Care and Cleaning: use a soft, microfibre damp cloth. You can add a dab of mild detergent like washing up liquid to clean more stubborn marks. Make sure you dry a gloss dining table after cleaning. Most importantly, avoid throwing anything sharp on or across the surface as this will mark the gloss.

 

Matt Finished Dining Table

The Look: soft, cool and contemporary dining. Especially Good For: a relaxed family setting. A matt dining table will also effortlessly blend with multiple finishes so it’s a quick style fix. Care and Cleaning: similar to gloss, use a soft damp cloth to clean matt painted furniture. Be sure to dry the table after cleaning and don’t drag anything sharp across the surface.

 

Tempered Glass Dining Table

The Look: clear, crisp and fresh. Especially Good For: glass is a really safe, durable material that creates the illusion of more space. Glass also allows you to be really bold with your chair styles and colours choices. Care and Cleaning: you can use antibacterial sprays, even ones that contain bleach, on a glass dining table as the glass is nonporous. Then use a specific glass spray, such as a window cleaner, to protect the surface from smears using a lint free cloth. Alternatively, you can also use soapy lukewarm water and dish soap to give the table a good clean.   Top Tip: Remember to also clean the underside of your glass table if it’s transparent. It won’t need an in depth clean like the top surface, but it’s still important to clean and maintain the underside to keep your table looking its best.  

Frosted Glass Dining Table

The Look: soft, slightly hazy and calming. Especially Good For: durable dining. Frosted glass is the most durable possible version of a matt finish as it is made from tempered safety glass. It’s a luxurious but practical smooth finish. Care and Cleaning: to clean frosted glass, use a non-streaking window cleaner or antibacterial spray and a soft lint free towel. Don’t place hot utensils straight from the oven onto a frosted glass surface and don’t drag anything sharp across the table surface.

 

HPL Finish Dining Table

The Look: satin with a subtle sheen. Bright but not glossy. Especially Good For: families and busy mealtimes. HPL is incredibly strong, durable, practical and easy to maintain so it’s an ideal choice for something as often used as a dining table. Care and Cleaning: HPL can withstand common household cleaners such as washing-up liquid or antibacterial spray, so these are all fine for use on the surface. However, stay away from corrosive chemicals such as descaling agents, oven cleaners, chlorine and acetone as this will damage the surface.

 If you'd like to learn more about HPL, we've featured this durable finish in a Material Spotlight blog post which you can view here.

 

White or Grey Oak Veneer Dining Table

The Look: the best of both; the texture of timber with a clean even painted surface. Especially Good For: a setting that has lots of texture but still needs to feel modern. Care and Cleaning: use a paper towel or a clean dish cloth rather than a sponge to clean the veneer, as a sponge will more than likely just spread the liquid across the surface. For the best results, try to wipe up any spills as soon as they happen.

 

Timber Veneers (oak, black ash, wenge, walnut) Dining Tables

The Look: warm and textured with a crisp finish. Especially Good For: coordinating with other timber finishes. A wood veneer is a great alternative to a plain white or grey surface, and is ideal for adding depth and making quite a statement. Care and Cleaning: to clean a wooden veneer, dampen a non-abrasive lint free cloth and move in the direction of the wood grain. For more stubborn marks, apply a dab of mild dishwashing detergent to your cloth. Avoid using wax-based polishes or cleaning products as they are designed for raw solid timbers rather than veneers and can cause a cloudy appearance on the surface.  

Real Wood Dining Table

The Look: tactile, warm and textured. Especially Good For: styling alongside more modern finishes. Real wood dining tables are both long lasting and very durable. They will also bring such a welcoming and inviting feel to any dining space. Care and Cleaning: use dish soap and water on your wooden finishes, applied with a damp cloth. Try not to scrub repeatedly in the same area though as this will damage the protective seal on the wood’s surface  

Still can’t choose?

Go for a mixed material dining table. A dining table with a combination of finishes is a great way to introduce a variety of textures and colours in your space, without making your dining setting look mismatched or messy. We’ve done the edit on our range of mixed material dining tables so you know you’ll be choosing a piece that’s been carefully considered.  

And Finally… make sure you use placemats and coasters each mealtime if you want to protect your table surface and keep it looking its best for longer.

  Phew, we’ve made it! Everything you need to know when shopping for a dining table. We’ve also created a handy pocket guide full of dining table buying info that you can view and print here.   Many of the table and chair combinations shown in this post are also available as pre made sets.

How to Mix and Match Your Dining Room Furniture: The Mismatched Look
April 21, 2016 at 4:20 pm 0
Mix and match dining setting At a first glance mix and match furniture may look like a totally random selection. However, it’s actually a much more considered design set up than just throwing any old pieces together. After all, you don’t want your dining space looking like your old student digs or your first flat, where non-matching furniture was more of a necessity than a lifestyle choice! When done correctly, mixing your dining chairs is a great way to create a unique look in your dining area. We’ve put together our own definitive guide to offer you style tips for pulling off a mix and match dining set. We also have tons of dining room decorating ideas, so you'll be creating this very on-trend mix and match look in no time!  

Same Colour Dining Chair, Different Design:

By keeping the colour of your dining chairs the same, you are able to keep the coordination. You're also able to have some fun with the shape, style and size of the chairs you choose.  

Mix and Match Same Design Dining Chair, Different Colour:

One of the easiest mixed dining chairs design ideas is having the same shape and style of dining chair but in a variety of complementary colours. This is because there is still consistency from the design of the chairs, but you can really get creative with which colour combinations you choose. Opt for two tones or a neutral palette for a more subtle take on this look.
Mix and match dining set: Arc Oak and White Gloss and Senn Colourful Dining Set Danetti

Mixing bold chair colours against tactile wooden and gloss surfaces is a fun take on the mix and match look. Not to mention the gorgeous look of the close up and detailing.

 

Same Material Dining Chair, Different Design:

This look is ideal if you have a particular material choice in mind but still want mix things up. The key to pulling off this mismatched dining setting is to stick with just one material finish but in different chair styles. We’ve opted for real leather but you can choose any material that best suits your space. It’s a good idea to stick to one colour when opting for this mismatched look. This is so that there aren't too many points of difference. All of our leather chairs come in the same palette creating plenty of potential to coordinate different designs of chair.   

Play With The Height Of Chairs and Bar Stools:

Okay, so a bar stool isn’t technically a dining chair but we had to include this mix and match dining setting. Having different heights in your dining space, such as bar stools at a breakfast bar, will help to create a nice visual balance in the space. We’ve kept elements the same such as the wire leg frame of both the Eames chairs and of the Anzio bar stools, as it is a contemporary coordinating feature that helps to tie the whole look together. If you want to have an even more coordinated look throughout your space, you might want to consider something like an Eames Style Bar Stool, as they have similar styling on the base and the seat mirrors the continuous curve of the Eames chair.
Anzio Modern Gas Lift Bar Stool Danetti

You can also mix the colours of the bar stool seats, like we've styled here with the Anzio Modern Gas Lift Bar Stools in mulberry purple, white and black £132

Mixing The Traditional With Modern:

When mixing traditional with modern pieces, less really is more. Try not to have too many different styles of chair as this can make the space look jumbled rather than styled. We’ve selected a seat similar to the Eames Dining Armchair, called the Finn Dining Armchair, as its iconic design means it will always look on trend and up to date. To add a traditional spin, we’ve chosen the tactile oak frame finish of the Scandi style Senn Oak and White Dining Chair, which also helps to add a touch a warmth. The white finish of both of the seats helps to tie the whole look together. When selecting a table for this look, we’d suggest something with glass and chrome accents, like the Tiva Small Glass Dining Table or Naro Round Glass 4 Seater Table. The transparency of the glass would let the chairs be the ‘star of the show’ while the chrome accents would give the set a truly modern edge. If you’re really inspired by this timeless look, we definitely recommend taking a look at our “How to Add a Modern Edge to a Traditional Home” blog post (after you’ve finished reading this one of course), which offers an array of style inspiration for creating this look throughout your home.    

Different Details:

Mix and match furniture can create a very impactful setting. However, there are ways around this if you’d like to have a more subtle take on this statement look but still with some level of variation. Changing just one element or detail of your chair selection keeps the coordination but breaks up the palette for a mini mixed look.

Tactile Textures:

When mixing textures, we suggest keeping the shape and style of your dining chairs as similar as you can. This is so all the style impact from this look comes from your choice of mixed of materials. Whether it’s wood with chrome or fabric and faux leather, like we’ve opted for with our Riva and Tori chairs, having a mix of textures in your dining area will create a tactile and very contemporary vibe, with the added benefit of getting to have such a range of gorgeous material finishes in your home! Both of our Tori and Riva chairs are stackable seats, so they are great space savers. This makes the chairs ideal for storing away and then getting out again when you have guests round for dinner.    

Same Style Dining Chair Different Design:

This dining room design is another subtle take on the mix and match look. By keeping the style the same but having a slightly different design of chair, you are able to mix things up just enough so there is a stylish visual impact, without the look becoming too overpowering in your dining space. A great way to do this is to place dining armchairs at the each end of the table. This not only mixes things up a bit, but it creates a really neat and uniform modern dining room. There's also two extra comfy seats at the end of the table for your favourite people. This style of chair is definitely something to consider if you want to comfortably sit around your table chatting, long after the dinner plates have been cleared away! Have we inspired you to give the mix and match look a try in your dining area? Let us know your favourite style in the comments, alongside any stylish set ups you already have in your home! :)

Q&A with Interior Designer and Presenter Julia Kendell
November 27, 2015 at 2:31 pm 0
Following the recent launch of our new  ‘Exclusively Danetti with Julia Kendell’ range, we managed to catch up with Julia during the recent shoot for the launch of our collection. We had a chat with her to find out what she thought about the collaboration and the individual products.

Why did you choose to work with Danetti?

When I am designing an interior for a client I will only specify furniture from a supplier I can trust and who I know will be reliable. The furniture also has to be aesthetically beautiful, fit the brief and it’s also got to be good value. I have to be absolutely sure that it's going to arrive on time, in good order and should anything go wrong, I have to know that the company will be on it straight away. Danetti satisfies all those criteria so I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to collaborate on a furniture collection with them.

What elements of your personal design ethos have you incorporated into this range?

My personal ethos is all about creating an emotional connection both between the interior and the inhabitants who will be using that space. The reason that’s important is because in this day and age we're all so busy and we need a home that we can retreat to at the end of the day. Somewhere you feel safe, that's also energising. So for me creating this range of furniture, creates a perfect backdrop for home life that has a sense of energy about it. And that has been really important.

How would you sum up the range?

I’d sum up the range as being a fresh and robust collection combining organic materials and glossy surfaces. I've created something that’s really energising and is just a really fabulous collection for contemporary family living.

The Peacock blue is a beautiful accent - is it a bit of a signature colour of yours?

I really enjoy designing with blue. It’s a very calming colour and because of this and because it’s very easy on the eye. It means you can use quite punchy shades to create impact and depth in a scheme without it unbalancing the whole look of the scheme and without it drawing too much attention. So yes, it's just a fabulous colour. I love it!

What elements of the process of design do you enjoy the most?

I love the entire experience of designing and putting this collection together. It has been hugely exciting for me. Of course I suppose nothing beats the moment when you’ve done all the concept drawings, you’ve had all the meetings and then suddenly the pieces arrive and you can unwrap them and see them in the flesh. It's just so exciting.

How important was it to you that these products were affordable?

Affordable design has always been at the heart of my work. When I first started out in the industry a very long time ago it was very much an elitist sport. Only the very wealthy could afford to have really beautifully designed pieces of furniture and interiors and of course there's no reason why everybody shouldn’t have a beautiful home. So throughout my career, I’ve always championed really good quality design at good value.

What does good design mean to you?

Good design to me is creating a balance between something being aesthetically very pleasing (so it's satisfying all the senses I suppose, something that feels good, that’s tactile, that looks great, sometimes that smells great too) and also being functional and practical. You want something that makes you feel a whole emotional connection. 

How do you see these products integrating with the modern family?

I think that the dining table and the space around it is really underestimated. In this day and age when families are so busy and when the illuminated screen is such a draw - we need to be able to have family time around the dining table. It’s one of those moments when we can really connect as a family. It’s the place where you have Xmas lunches and birthday dinners. You can sort out problems and share experiences. Frankly, it is where memories are made, family memories and that is so, so important.

What do you think of the bar stools?

I am particularly thrilled with the bar stools. It’s really difficult actually to find the perfect bar stool. One that you can move easily, is comfortable, looks great, but these bar stools I think are spot on. They’re very easy to move around. Plus, they’re light as anything but they are very robust and you know they are going to last and they look fantastic. Even just the tiniest detail like the beautiful stitching around the seat. They’re absolutely stunning -I'm so so pleased with them!

How about the sideboards:

The sideboards have been designed with detail in mind and they will satisfy even the most discerning client. The chamfered detail throughout the whole piece is just beautiful. Whats more the 'soft close' mechanism and the super smooth sliding door are great too. It’s just so lovely to use. I love the combination of the materials as well. The gloss, and the matt and the timber I think just works so beautifully together. And of course there are a lot of surprising little details as well like the mirrored backs on some of the pieces - just beautiful…

What do you like best about the table selection? 

For the cost of the Arc round table, the price I think is quite amazing. I haven’t seen such beautiful veneer detailing on a table at that price - ever! So just how lovely to be able to have such a stunning piece in your kitchen or dining room. The Zen table is a contemporary spin on the classic trestle table it is the perfect size for a family or a group of friends. I wanted to keep the lines nice and simple and straightforward - it’s just perfect.

The chairs are so elegant, how do you feel about the results?

Comfort is so important when it comes to sitting at a dining table. The design of the Form Dining chair really focus's on this. It's available with and without arms and the detailing again is really really superior. Particularly the way the frame follows the curvature around the back, it’s just the most beautiful chair. Definitely designed with comfort very much in mind. We all like to spend time at the dinner table, nobody wants their friends or family to feel uncomfortable. Therefore the design makes you feel like you want to spend hours at the dining table. So there you have it! Our Exclusively Danetti range with TV Interior Designer and Presenter Julia Kendell in all it's glory. If you want to see more, head over to Danetti.com for more.

Living Focus: Grey Gloss Dining Tables
January 7, 2015 at 5:44 pm 0
We’ve launched a collection of Grey Gloss Dining Tables as a response to the strong interior trend. Not so much a passing trend, we are seeing the emergence of grey as a core neutral that is here to stay.
Fern with Eames breakfast set

The stylish Fern breakfast set

The Fern Grey Gloss Kitchen Table is the smallest of the Fern range that we have launched in this versatile tone. Also available in a 4 or 6 seater, we’ve added Dove Grey to one of our best selling lines. Grey Gloss has a similar element of warmth that you get from timber, a quality benefit that you don’t get with White Gloss. The particular tone of Grey Gloss that we have selected for the Fern is a truly versatile neutral, not to be mistaken with flat colourless monochrome. I see the popularity of Grey as symptomatic of our understanding of layering within an interior scheme. Contemporary is no longer about stark white lines and cold simplicity. You can layer and blend Grey Gloss with other gloss finishes such as White Gloss or even a very rustic unfinished oak. The emergence of grey dining tables especially is in part due to the fact that we are changing the way that we plan our living and dining spaces. Fewer people have separate dining rooms and there’s a definite move to more transitional spaces and open plan living. The dining area, as a space, is a mixture between the function of a kitchen and the interactive family living of a lounge space. The dining table is therefore often physically partway between the two areas. Grey Gloss is an ideal solution in the scenario; the reflective finish is crisp, sleek and coordinates with many contemporary kitchens whilst the colour is light enough to remain fresh, acting as a sleek contrast to other more tactile element in the room like upholstery and soft furnishings. Grey could be cold but it’s all about the hue. Soft not stark, we have selected greys that compliment other colours and can be easily blended with other colours and tones.

New Tables To Our Range:

Grey fern with teal and yellow and grey etc

Grey Fern extending table with mix and match Eames chairs

Fern Grey Gloss Dining Tables This is the lightest of our Greys, on one of our best selling tables. The essence and appeal of the design is that its perfect for fitting into many interiors so the colour had to mirror that. We selected a pale grey gloss with a hint of warmth allowing it to blend with both colour and neutrals. Natural oak floor would be a beautiful contrast to the soft colour. This table is also available in a 4 and 6 seater. Kitchen Table 800mm x 800mm: £119 4 Seater 1200mm x 800mm : £149 6 Seater 1600mm x 800mm: £199 Assi White and Grey Gloss Extending Dining Table This table gives you the opportunity to dip in and out of the Grey Gloss movement! Already on trend with it’s mid-century inspired shape the main body of this table is white gloss with the grey gloss being used on the removable extension leaf only. The colour here is a cooler mid-tone grey used to pic up on the brushed stainless steel on the legs. Again, we’ve made sure that this isn’t a straight black and white mix. The colour has depth, making it ideal with white, strong black or bold colour. With the grey gloss on the extension leaf only you have the versatility of many looks on one. Assi White and Grey Gloss Extending Dining Table: £399
