Buying Guide

Fixed Dining Tables

After a wooden table? You’ve come to the right place: here is our fixed dining table buying guide. Not only does a natural material like wood add warmth and a certain homeliness with its unique appearance, but a solid timber table is practical and long lasting, too. Whether it’s for a formal dining room or an open-plan family living area (or even as an extra large desk – if space permits), here we take a look at the different options and finishes available to help you choose your perfect dining table now.

If you need to complete the dining set with chairs as well, take a look at our upholstered chairs buying guide or browse all our dining chairs.

WHAT SHAPE TABLE?

Think about how you use your space and what you use your table for. Is it for cosy family meals? Is it for entertaining? Do you need one end to double up as an office space? From round to rectangle to square, we have different shapes to suit different spaces and different needs.

ROUND

For a more familial feel, discover our round dining tables. They often feel more cosy and create a sense of togetherness.

RECTANGLE

A classic rectangular-shaped dining table is a simple and easy option with chairs. Try benches as an alternative seating choice.

SQUARE

Sometimes a square dining table is just what you need to fit a certain space or coordinate with other furniture pieces at home for unity.

WHAT STYLE TABLE?

Whether you prefer a modern design with minimal silhouettes or a French Provincial look, there are a few to choose from. Most of our fixed dining tables are crafted from mango timber in our classic honey finish with its characteristic ‘tiger stripe’ pattern, in simple plain and various parquetry top designs. There is also the Hamptons Round Dining Table in a natural finish made from white cedar.

The style and size of the dining chairs you choose can also determine the number of seats you can fit around each table. Please note, our seating plans are based on our upholstered chairs, but using our Hamptons Cafe chairs you could seat more.

Colour variation in timber

As each piece is carefully crafted with natural timber, no two are exactly the same. Please expect slight variations in appearance, grain, colour and tone. Keep in mind that depending on the calibration of your screen colour the shades and colours will appear differently than when viewing in the shops. Colour will also vary depending on the lighting in your home. To view our furniture collection, please call a store to check availability and view.

The individual beauty of each timber table is showcased with the simple designs. Each tree is different and so each furniture piece is different. This means no two people will have exactly the same item; the colour, texture, pattern and tone vary depending on the grains, markings, knots and burrs. Every table is prepared to ensure it is in optimum condition for the Australian environment and many steps are taken to create the finished look of all of our wooden furniture. If you are looking to set up a few pieces together when you buy your table, we do recommend purchasing from the same shipment to ensure multiple timber pieces are more similar in colour and grain.
