Which room it is for - dining, kitchen or open-plan living, how are you going to use the table, eating (of course!) but also for homework and office work, family games, sophisticated dinner parties, coffee and chat... Do you need it to extend for special occasions, what chairs would look good. If you need some help we are delighted to work this all out with you and make sure you choose the prefect dining table for your home and your lifestyle. Take a look at our Top 10 Tables and get some ideas flowing.
