Edinburgh Extending Dining Table - Neptune Furniture



Edinburgh’s a dining table for those of us that want smart, traditional design that doesn’t feel too formal. Its framed, clean-edged tabletop and column-shaped legs tick the traditional box, while the tactile, natural oak brings it back down to earth. It also extends, which means you can seat everyone comfortably when the whole family’s round.

A closer look at Edinburgh......

Design detail Edinburgh’s legs are its defining detail. With a squared block at the top and bottom, and a simple rib design, they feel grand but not fussy. It also has a stretcher – a piece of timber that runs from one side to the other near the floor – which gives it the feel of a traditional refectory table, as well as making it more stable.

How it extends Extending tables are great, but only when they’re not a pain to use. You’ll be glad to know that Edinburgh’s easy to extend. Simply pull the ends of the table out from the middle, lift the leaves out of the gap (you store them in here when you’re not using them), and slot them into place.

Materials Oak, because it’ll look more than good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two tables will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber.
Finish To add a bit more texture to an otherwise clean and crisp timber, the oak has a brushed surface that exposes the grooves in its grain. Next it is stained it to make it slightly darker and bring out the grain more. And then an treatment oil is applied – IsoGuard® – to make it easier to live with. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there.
