How to choose this product

dining-table

A dining table is designed for serving and eating meals. There are many different sizes, shapes and materials. On ArchiExpo, this furniture is categorized by properties such as style or special features.

Applications

These tables are found in residential, commercial and public settings. In addition to eating, they can be used for playing board games, writing or other activities. There are folding models and those with extensions. Some are fixed in place.

Technologies

Glass, stainless steel, solid wood, laminates and other materials are used to make these tables.

How to choose

Consider the relative importance of style and sturdiness. Determine frequency of use and available space, leaving enough room to move around the table. Size will depend on the number of people to be seated. Some can be extended by inserting separate leaves. Style can be chosen to blend in with other furniture or stand out. Evaluate ease of maintenance and the need for any special finishes or protective coatings.
